Looking for a DIY Project? Here are 4 ideas to get you started:

1) Create a decorative collage painting 

Add a touch of your personality to your living room or family room by putting together a collage! Dig up some photographs, find some cheap craft pieces (you can also check if anyone is giving away cool pieces for free near you), and pick up a wooden board or canvas to get started.

Fall and winter seasons are coming which means it’s time to warm up to quilts and blankets! Mix and match different fabrics to create a unique quilt – new and used clothes, scraps and other types of fabrics, and even blankets are being sold or given away for free on ClassifiedAds.com. Check which ads are listed in your city, and sew together a colorful quilt by hand or using a sewing machine!

4) Restore an old chair or table

Search for used furniture on sale or available for free, and restore the piece’s charm – a perfect project for the cooler months! Simply sand and buff out scratches, touch up faded paint spots or repaint the whole thing, and add a layer of polish. And voila! There’s your new perfect piece of furniture!
