We are currently remodeling one bathroom, and now we want to attack other areas of our home. I love finding ideas that are economical, and not complicated. My favorite one is the idea to make cushions from photos of your pets. I want to do that, and I can't wait to see how our cat reacts to replicas of herself.

Really like your DIY home decor,they are fairly easy even for me who only paints,walls that is.Thank you so much great ideas ,like to do my bathroom.

Fine art photography can give a contemporary touch as an interior decoration element and can be framed choosing from a wide selection of matting and framing solutions to suit the interior decoration of the living space or office. As an element of interior decoration, various subjects of fine art paintings like on a href="http// == ting-wall-art/"this site/a could suit different living spaces. A living room could be adorned with a variety of subjects according to the feeling the dwellers want to impart to it.

I live in a studio so I just have one room. But I still love making things for it.

I enjoy making decorations for my living room, especially for my front door (wreaths)

My favorite room to decorate is definitely my room. It's like my own little sanctum of personalized goods. I love it. Though, the living room would be a close second. I also want people to see my mad DIY skills.

My favorite room to decorate is my living room. It's the easiest room to fit all my DIY project ideas in!

My favorite room to make decor projects for is my front porch. In the summer it's surrounded by an insane amount of morning glories. To add to the craziness I like to add hand drawn signs and upcycled furniture.

Right now, my favorite room to decorate is the master bedroom. I've been redecorating it little by little for about a year now.

I think you meant "...CHANCE to win"? Although, "Comment here for a win" sounds kinda 'kewl', too, I guess.

The living room is probably the one that I start with first.

I love making DIY kitchen items like pot holders and utensil holders.

Probably the living room because that is the first room people see when they walk into my place.

The living room because it has the most room for my DIY projects!

The living room since I like to make things for the fireplace mantel.

I try to make my living room the focus of my decorating because it is the first room all of my guests see! But I am also on a mission to make my bedroom as cute and cozy as possible.

I love making new projects for my bedroom. Anything to bring more elements of cute and cozy into my room!

Definitely the living areas, so my guests can enjoy my handy work as well!

I really like doing DIY projects for my living room. It's the first thing people see when they visit!

My bedroom because it needs some work. It currently is practical but not personal.

If I had to pick a room I'd say, the bathroom or living room because there's just so much that can be done with storage, accents and decor. Plus it's nice to be able to show off your DIY projects when company comes over.

I love your site and emails. So many ideas. I've done several things I have got from you. The emails are so full of links so I can click see the instructions, materials and cost. I like how your projects use a lot of items I already have. I'm not much of a decorated but your projects make me feel like I am. I highly recommend your site to my family and friends. Thank you for sharing with us.

I actually like decorating my living room. No one ever goes into my bedroom but meI like to show off my decor when people come over!

Bedroom. There are so many relaxing and/or romantic ideas out there. You can really turn the room into a sanctuary with a few pretty projects.

My living room is definitely where I'm constantly doing DIY projects. I'm constantly looking for ways to refresh the room. My bedroom would be second.

Definitely my bedroom because it can be as personal as I want. I have a lot of knickknacks on display that are part of who I am.

I love decorating our bedroom with personalized things that tell our own story. The bedroom is perfect because you don't have to worry about guests asking questions, like why you have a pillow with a picture of your dog on it. P.S. Photo transfer is maybe the greatest human invention to date. My boyfriend is 100% getting a puppy pillow for Valentine's Day.

They say the kitchen is the "heart of the home," so I like making DIY decor projects for my kitchen. I think they have the most impact, because I see them so often.

When I was in college I'd make DIY projects to decorate my room, especially the desk area, to keep up morale and feel at home.

I'm always looking for inexpensive, yet good-looking ways to display the zillions of photos we have, so the article about How to Make a Gallery Wall was just perfect! I may do the same for some of my kids' art projects, too.

I love making decor for my office. There are so many great tutorials for decor that's organizational as well as cute!

I love that chevron wall! I need to stop renting immediately so I can finally paint my walls the way I want. Such great ideas! Thank you!
