I recently had a realization. I don’t love doing DIY projects. For some reason I’ve always felt pressured to do them for the blog, simply because I felt like I should. (Never the right reason!) I love seeing other people do DIY projects (hence my pinboard devoted to ideas), but it seems like they are everywhere right now , which makes me less inspired. I want to do them for a specific use or purpose, not just because. Plus, I’ve been so focused on cleaning out our home and getting rid of stuff that I have a hard time buying supplies for new projects… So, I’ve decided that I’m only going to do DIY projects occasionally when I’m inspired and if they have a specific use for our home. Cool? :)
Here’s a recent example. We got some new succulents (sedum, my new favorite!) and I wanted to do something fun and unique for the containers; I already had one terra cotta pot. I saw this idea somewhere on Pinterest…putting washi tape on terra cotta pots and I just love how it adds pattern and bright color! Plus the level of this project is my favorite : EASY! And time required? Minimal!
What do you think? If you’re looking for an easy project, I highly recommend getting some washi tape because the possibilities are endless!
I’d love to hear, what are your thoughts on DIY projects? Do you enjoy them? How often do you actually make the DIY projects you’re inspired by on other blogs?
