We're not going to tell you how to decorate your home, only you know what you like best. Instead, we'll give you step by step instructions on how to do things like tile a bathroom floor, recover dining chairs, paint kitchen cabinets or refinish an old dresser. How would you like to know the very best paints to use for any surface or the cheapest way to transform an ugly laminate countertop? Want to know how to recover a lampshade for pennies or get ideas for turning thrift store trash into treasure?

The best part? It doesn't matter what your decorating style is! Everybody is welcome! The great thing about "doing it yourself" is that so many of these projects can be adapted to your own personal style. Like modern? Great! Like vintage? Great! From cottage to modern and everything in between, there is something for everyone here.

After years of having people come to our house asking "Wow, where did you get that frame?" (we made it) or "Where did you find that amazing table?" (garage sale - we refinished it) we realized that we have accumulated a whole lot of do it yourself decorating skills we could share. Once people started asking us advice on how to paint wood furniture we realized it was time to start sharing our tips!

This site came came to life not long after we bought our first "fixer upper" and decided to tackle a lot of the fixing up ourselves to save money. (You can read our About DIY Home Decorating Ideas page for the full history.) We share all of what we learned (and are still learning!) with you right here on these pages. We also share our mistakes, which will hopefully help you avoid some of the bumps in the road that we experienced.

So settle back with a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) and start browsing the many ideas we have for you here, for free! There is so much to discover, before you know it you'll be pulling up your sleeves and transorming your own space into the one you really want.

Use what you have and then make it better!
