I’m not a huge fan of DIY projects and I would actually probably prefer to not do half of the ones I do, but I love saving money! Materialistic things can be so expensive and lucky for us; we have Pinterest. Pinterest is my go-to guide on how to DIY anything. Check out the updated DIY couch I created:
I spray painted the entire frame gold (well, my sweet husband and kind brother actually did it for me), sanded the wooden handles so they would be lighter in color, and re-upholstered the entire thing! The dark (and ugly) cushion covers had to go. I created “no-sew”; yes, I said no-sew; bright cushion covers that were to my taste. No-sew is a new concept to me and I worry my cushion covers will rip apart one day, but it’s temporary and it’ll do. I also created the throw pillows because as you know; throw pillows can be fairly expensive. My pillows probably cost me about $4 to make (each).
DIY Wedding Centerpieces
Another DIY project I took on was for my own wedding. If you read my previous blog, “How Much Did You Spend On Your Wedding?”; I was very budget conscious so I took a lot of matters into my own hands. I created my own centerpieces. I was inspired by Pinterest to create a rustic theme that included the color gold.
I used beer bottles, mason jars, extra random jars and wine bottles to create my centerpieces. My bridesmaids and I scraped all of the labels of, dried them off and spray painted everything.
DIY projects are great because everything is personalized to your liking and are such money savers, but they are exhausting!
