Home is Where The Heart Is – Make your home yours!

What could be better than making a home improvement that your family will enjoy, but that will also make your home more valuable? What if that improvement was something you could do yourself? Today we’ll talk about a couple quick DIY improvements that could make a difference in any home!

Framing mirrors and chalkboards: We found this DIY tip on Pinterest and thought that just about anyone could do this improvement and make a difference in any room! You can coordinate the frame to the room with different types of wood or paint and make it very affordable by framing a mirror that is already there! We love this photo below because it shows the mirror and the chalkboard. This DIY project is perfect for most bathrooms that need just a touch of updating.


DIY Fire pit! Big yard or small, this simple, DIY fire pit could be customizable for any house with a backyard!

Generally people make improvements before they sell a home, or refinance so that it can increase the value, but why not do something now that you can enjoy and give you a return on investment? Look for more of our DIY design posts coming up! *check with your city if any permits are needed to install a fire pit.
