DIY Weekend Projects

DIY Weekend Projects

 I've got DIY furniture on the brain. Now that I know Justin & I can successfully build furniture, I'm ready to take on the furniture world. Here are a few furniture DIY's that I'm loving.

1 // DIY X-Leg Bench // I would love to have a couple of X-leg benches at the end of my bed, but have been having trouble finding the right patterns, colors & styles. A DIY, custom bench may be my go-to and Jennifer on The Chronicles of Home shares how she built it on her blog!

2 // A Dresser Update // I've been obsessed with the color navy lately, so this beautiful dresser update caught my eye. Box of Design shares a couple of her favorite furniture upgrades.

3 // Ikea Hack Dining Room Chair // I'm in LOVE with this Ikea hack. It looks so simple, and updating my dining room chairs is definitely on my to-do list. Check out this, and other Ikea Hacks on Live Simply.

What DIY projects are you doing this weekend?

  1. actually....NOTHING..LOL Rare I know but we are heading out tomorrow morning on vaca and I am not doing anything. :-) Have a blessed day! :-)

  2. Funny you should ask, I have many projects of my own but it seems like I am doing everyone else's this weekend! Landscaping for a friend tomorrow morning then antiquing Saturday afternoon for another friend's wedding décor. On Sunday I am doing a family photo shoot for a friend who is tired of paying for bad photography. I told her at least if mine's bad, it will be free bad photography! haha.
