With spring here and a lot of homes going on the market, many clients are going DIY for home repairs and landscaping. After searching for great DIY sites, I found Alexa Sanchez wonderful post that already mapped it out for me. Got to love Active Rain! See her original blog below!

Taking a do-it-yourself approach to your home decor can not only save you a ton of money, but can also be incredibly rewarding. Here are five sites that offer great ideas for DIY projects.

 1. has been around since 2007 and is the web’s most popular resource for DIY projects. You’ll find tutorials, inspiration galleries, photo home tours, and more.

 2. specializes in rustic, industrial, and (you guessed it) masculine DIY ideas. You’ll learn how to build shelves from old belts and 2x4s, or make a desk out of an old door.

 3. is a great site if mid-century modern is more your style. You’ll get some tips on how to capture that Mad Men look.

 4. combines the DIY spirit with important home maintenance tips, and even reminds you when you need to complete a task, like replacing smoke detector batteries.

 5. is perhaps the most complete online DIY resource. It has illustrated instructions and complete materials lists for hundreds of projects. The handier you are, the more useful this site will be.


There are tons of sites on the web and I Hope this short list helps.
