  1. I have to say that 11 and 16 are my top two picks from this roundup. I like the vase lamp too.

    You are certainly creative and I love your ideas. Thank you for always giving me simple projects I can do.

  2. I love all of your DIY roundups and it’s so hard to pick a fave! The hoot owl centerpiece and the charging station are two of my faves, but I love them all.

  3. You’ve inspired us all with some great DIY’s this last year – my favourite is the guest room charging station. Such a thoughtful thing to have for guests and it looks great too.

  4. I’m still hoping to one day get lucky and find a vintage scale like yours! 🙂 Love all these projects, the owls are still one of my favorites I need to make. #HomeMattersParty

  5. wow i just loved the Guest Room Charging Station. i have completed that project now i will start other 15 projects. i am too much excited to complte them. thanks for your great share.

  6. Hey Lorelai, this DIY jobs area great. I really loved the “Beach sign” …. I”ll make one for myself as my apartment is about 100 m from the beach 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hey Lorelai, thank your for the round up post.

    I love the #12 idea about Solar Lamp – Beautiful Outdoor Decor.

    I’ve been meaning to get a solar panel to do something like this. This just serves as a push I need. Will look into this once I settle down.

  8. Hey! Thank you for these great ideas!
    I and my wife just love DIY projects as it’s great to see what you can make with your own hands, and it gives even more pleased to see that you can make your own house as you want. And saving money also is a good thing, obviously.
    I especially love the ideas of custom wire basket, outdoor lighting, that wooden sign.
    Also, the charging station is an interesting idea.
