10 DIY home projects you can do for less than $50

Sometimes I just have the hankering to make something. I know you all know exactly what I mean. You get that feeling often when you are browsing through Pinterest and see all the projects that are right at your fingertips. I have some friends that got this hankering over a long weekend once and ended up completely remodeling their bathroom.

Especially with Josh and I trying to live debt free, those types of projects are just off the list for now. So instead I’m sharing my 10 favorite home DIY’s that will cost you less than $50 to do start to finish.

1. $25 Skinny Sofa Table      sofa-table-Always-Never-Done-23-400x600From the well named blog Always Never Done this sofa table can be made with $25. A perfect day project to make your tiny living room a little more livable.
