SUYL: DIY Projects

This week Kelly’s ‘Show Us Your Life’ link up is all about DIY.  Having bought our first home last year Matthew and I are all about the DIY and we have several things planned for weekends, vacation times and future years.  We are saving and sorting and planning up a storm, so I thought I’d share a few things I’ve found on pinterest that I’d really like to do in our place!  I will do another home tour before long – partly for our lovely inquisitive relatives, and also because things keep changing and I love to share!

So, DIY daydreams.  Here we go!  These are mainly pretty, crafty, cute stuff – there’s also plenty of painting/sanding/topsoiling in the plans!

Love this way of making prints – I desperately want something on the walls of our home gym.

I would like a wreath year round – may be something like this?

I am SO looking forward to this link up – DIY is my addiction at the mo!

    I've seen those brick books before, but never actually looked it them up close. I really just thought it was a bunch of books on a staircase. But seeing they're actually bricks made to look like books, is finally now making sense to me. Now that I actually get it, I'd love to have a few in our backyard.And just letting you know, I'm stopping by from Kelly's Korner!
