DIY projects that can save you money

DIY projects save money. Period. Many people won't even consider a DIY project because they think they don't have the skills necessary to complete the job. But, guess what - You may just surprise yourself!

I am a woman that can't sew. I am a woman that can't draw. I can't use a power tool without help . Yet, I complete DIY projects all the time that come out looking pretty darn good. That means, if I can do it, so can you!
Take a look at these Unique DIY Headboard ideas. Your going to love how simple they are to make, but even more you're going to like the price. CHEAP AND EASY! That's me! (Wait, that isn't quite what I meant)

If you like the look of 'Shabby Chic' furniture, but think the price is outrageous (and let's face it, it is), learn the DIY 'Shabby Chic' paint technique and turn an old piece of furniture into something beautiful and new.
Don't throw out that old wicker furniture. It CAN be saved and repainted and turned into something even better than it was originally. Learn how to paint wicker furniture and save a bundle. If you get good enough at refinishing, there is even the potential of turning it into a little extra money.

Have you ever tackled a DIY project that turned out to be easier than you thought it would be? If so, share your techniques here. Comments and suggestions are always welcome.
