Hi and welcome to The Old Summers Home. I love to create new home decor and in this category, I will show you my favourite completed DIY decor projects and tutorials. Everything from the laundry room to kitchen upgrades to little knick-knacks to create your own personalized decor touch!
Adding a personal touch to your home with an easy DIY decor project is the perfect way to make your house a home and on a budget too! When you create something for your own place you can add unique details that you want. Customizing decor makes it all worth your time and energy and really speaks volumes about your personality. Not to mention the pride that you feel when you make something absolutely beautiful with your own two hands. You can also find our easy outdoor DIY projects here too like our Raised our Garden Pallet Project or our Cast Iron Bench makeover!!
Because I love Decor so much I want to share our easy DIY tutorials with you so that you too can create and learn a few new ideas. I love to find cheap and easy decor ideas that I can whip up in a snap because life is busy and kids are expensive!
When renovating and remodelling you have the perfect opportunity to change up the vibe and feel of your home. These are what I did to create my own rustic farmhouse decor.

Keep on the lookout as I will keep adding more and more.
