Saturday Savings- DIY vs. Buying decor

>> I'm back, this time with a new segment called Saturday Savings. Now usually I would use this to post about great Garage Sale finds that I scored on saturday mornings, but until I get my camera fixed and I can post photos, that can't happen. Therefore, this weeks Saturday Savings segment will be focusing on the money you can save from doing things yourself rather than buying expensive decor from specialty stores.

Now, I expect that everyone knows the benefits of DIY projects. I mean, what's not to love about the facts that they cost next to nothing and you can fully customize your projects to your liking? Whereas when you purchase decor items in stores, there is likely to be something you don't like about them, and the main issue is often the price. And now I reference a great DIY project done by Roeshel of The DIY Show Off.

Here she replicated a Mercury Glass Pumpkin from Pottery Barn ($26 for a 6" one) for only the price of a faux pumpkin from Michael's (they're pretty cheap with a 40% off coupon) and some spray paint. No doubt, this project was a slam dunk! It even inspired me to make a few of my own, but I'll have to wait until my 40% off coupon comes in the mail.



Great job Roeshel!
