We’ve been away exploring the beautiful Rocky Mountains the last eight days and I really wanted to hop on today and share my top 20 DIY projects on White Picket Farmhouse
DIY is what I started blogging about back in early 2016. It only makes sense to share my top 20 DIY’s with you all today
Top 20 DIY Projects on White Picket Farmhouse
- Deck Makeover – Part Two
To Be honest, I love Part 1 AND Part 2. If wanting to see a crazy transformation, we were working with very little money and equipment. This one is for you. Click here to see both transformations.
2. Easy and Simple DIY Bench
We have a REALLY small entrance and nothing every seemed to do it justice. Since we have such a small entrance we needed something that had big impact, but also had storage and this super easy DIY Bench fit the bill! Click here for a full DIY on this bench.
3. Sage Front Door + Board and Batten
On the other side of our entrance we had this blank wall. We decided to do white board and batten halfway up the wall with a shelf to display small vases and vintage art and we made our own peg wall. Click here to see tips on how to paint a exterior door too!
4. DIY Modern Wood Mantle
We made the shelving on either side of the fireplace as well as the hallow and cheap DIY Modern Mantle. This project has gone nuts on Pinterest with almost 27,000 shares! Click here to read the full blog.
5. DIY Artwork For Free
I was loving the brush stroke walls that have been showing up all over the Internet, but I didn’t really feel it was my vibe. I decided to use one of my old pieces of art and create this piece of art out of it for free. Click here to read what I used to make this free art.
6. One Room Challenge – Laundry Room Makeover
This laundry room was pretty unfinished and honestly depressing when we moved in. We decided to give it a fresh coat of white paint, put board and batten on the lower half of the wall and put peach decals on the top part of the wall. Click here to see the full before and after.
