Here are a few examples of DIY projects from our editor.
After recently buying our first home, I was lucky enough to get a craft room! Organization and storage is vital for any room, but a multi-purpose craft room takes the cake. Adding shelves instantly added space to store some of my commonly-used materials. The hardest part has been trying to get a proper ratio of decoration to storage, and the shelves are usually more cluttered than I like, but a quick cleanup is all it takes to return to some semblance of order.
These deck lights were a pipe dream until I saw them on sale this summer. I snagged a few strands and promptly grabbed everything else I needed to make them a reality. A few trial and errors later and our deck went from basic to fabulous! We love having friends over all year long, and these lights make our deck a natural place to congregate, especially when the fire is lit.
