Whether it's a new piece of art or furniture or even some new shelves or organizational bins, things that help us redecorate or organize our homes can make us feel refreshed — especially as spring rolls around! I think new decor is even more fun and satisfying when we've had a hand in making or renovating it ourselves. Sure, I like the couch and loveseat my husband and I picked out at the furniture store, but I always brag about the antique dining room set and buffet we spied at a local auction, bought for just $50 and refinished with sandpaper and low-VOC paint. I'm fond of the framed vintage New Yorker covers I bought from a street vendor in New York, but I love the hanging artwork we made ourselves out of four canvases, paint and hemp twine.

DIY home decor projects aren't just fun — they're also affordable and offer that "thrill of the hunt" feeling. You didn't just pick up that piece of furniture at Target. No, you had the incredible vision to pick it out at the secondhand store and recognize its post-renovation potential! You didn't spend $800 on a piece of cool wall art. You made your own amazing art using stuff from around the house!

Luckily for those of us who aren't necessarily always inspired on our own, several bloggers out there are filled with fantastic ideas for smart home decorating and secondhand renovating. If you're looking for inspiration, I suggest you check them out.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)

Great list. These blogs are really very helpful. I am planning on remodeling my home next year and I got many ideas from these blogs. This helped me a lot. For remodeling my kitchen I will be taking help of one of the service provider named Eskandari Stone. Really, a nice piece of information. Thanks!
