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 From 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.
2. $6 Plant Stands
OK, this is killer, seriously I want to make one so bad. I’ve been looking for plant stands lately and some of the ones you find in thrift stores just aren’t going to fit today’s aesthetic ya know? This tutorial from The Rugged Home is going down on my list, even in penny-pinching times, your plant babies need homes!
3. Industrial Wire Mail Baskets
Get your organizational skills on point with these rustic chic wire mail baskets. Believe it or not, they are made by spray painting a $5 shower caddy. GENIUS. Visit A House Full of Sunshine for all the details.
4. DIY Upholstered Bench
This bench comes in from The Rugged Rooster and seems to be a great project to tackle on a lazy Saturday morning. She says this came in at about $45, just under our $50 limit but perfect for something so beautiful!
5. $15 Floating Shelves
Shanty 2 Chic is legendary for their awesome DIY’s, but this one is by far one of their most popular. These $15 floating shelves make any space look like a farmhouse paradise.
6. Super Easy Sofa Table
If you don’t have a space challenge in your living room this tutorial for a $30 sofa table gives you room to really make something out of the wasted space behind your couch. Make sure you spy how Jenna Sue Design Co. has styled this table, it is so perfect.
7. DIY Succulent and Supply Holder Bookends
While I Spy DIY doesn’t specifically say this is under $50 I think it is safe to stay you can stay in this price range with this fun project! This is a perfect undertaking for a quick project that ends with super cute bookends or just a great looking organizer.
8. DIY Poster Hanger
A Beautiful Mess does it again with this crafty tutorial. Elsie shows us how to make your own poster holder and it makes her portrait look so good. What a way to easily display your memories.
9. Corner Floating Shelves
4 Men 1 Lady (for real her house must be crazy) shared this space saving tutorial on corner floating shelves. She makes this look surprisingly easy and I’m usually scared by those floating shelf tutorials.
10. DIY Mercury Glass Vase
I have a real love for mercury glass, it’s classy and rustic all at the same time. Amanda Katherine from Hammer and Heels blog shows how she got the look on a vase and styled a pretty fall mantle. This easily falls under our $50 limit and it is super easy.
