DIY best of: wall decor

by Kate Pruitt

After reading Amy’s post on how to make a new house a home, I’ve been majorly inspired to refresh my own apartment. I love to switch things around on a regular basis, and one of the easiest ways to create a huge impact is with wall decor. I’ve rounded up some of our favorite wall decor DIYs. Many of these projects use inexpensive or recycled materials, and they can be done over the course of a weekend. If you need a little pick-me-up for your home, one of these pieces may be just the thing. Enjoy! —
