I have rounded up 6 projects to make cheaper than buying. I am all about finding something that you want in a high-end store and coming home and making it yourself for a whole lot less money. We are collaborating with a group of bloggers each month for a DIY challenge. This month was building or making something for your home cheaper than buying the item at a high-end store.
This little stool from Just Measuring Up is a perfect example of making it cheaper. This stool looks exactly like the stools from West Elm and Eileen saved herself a lot of money with this project. These stools look great in a bathroom!
Teri, from T. Moore Home is so talented and she did a beautiful job recreating a table that she loved from Serena & Lily. I love everything from Serena & Lily except for the price. This project proves that with a little work, you can afford beautiful things for your home.
Did you know that you can make the blanket ladders for way less than buying. I love this tutorial for a DIY blanket ladder from 1905 Farmhouse!
I had been wanting a tripod floor lamp for a while so I made me one out of a thrifted telescope. I spent $5 on this project and you can see the tutorial and step-by-step pictures.
This West Elm knockoff bookshelf is gorgeous! Megan from Two Feet First is so talented and she has given us great instructions so we can save money by building one ourselves!
The DIY Dreamer built a nightstand cheaper than buying a nightstand and it is fabulous! This is a project that would be so easy to make and it looks expensive.
I love these 6 projects that are cheaper to make than buying and I am so inspired to keep creating the home that I desire without putting my family in debt. Be sure and visit each of these projects and see how to make them for your home. I can’t wait to see what this group of talented bloggers do next month.
