Pinterest: Source for DIY Renovation Ideas

The process of doing home improvements yourself can be as creative as it can be technical. But where to find inspiration? One of my favorite sites for discovering new ideas on any practical subject is Pinterest.

A little digging reveals that the site is bursting with neat renovation ideas. I’ve done a bit of the work for you; check out these pages to get a sense of what your next project might be.

Find inspiration for transforming spaces, everything from bathrooms to front porches to attics, on the House Remodel Ideas page.

Learn all sorts of useful things, such as how to install a chair rail, paint with an airless sprayer, and make a wood valance on the For the Home: DIY remodel page.

Check out the info on framing bathroom mirrors, putting up a tile backsplash, and remodeling a vanity—along with a whole lot more—on the For the Home page.

Get tutorials on painting surfaces like basement ceilings, kitchen cabinets, and concrete floors on the Home: Planned DIY projects for new house page. Bonus: learn how to install butcher-block countertops.

Search for creative ideas on the Home DIY page, including using shipping pallets for coffee tables, headboards, and picture shelves; or decorating your stairs with wallpaper.

The …and the kitchen sink page pins kitchen-related inspiration, including installing a farmhouse sink, setting up creative cutting board storage, and using wallpaper to decorate the insides of cabinets.
