Most people who are DIY fanatics don’t go into a specialized workshop to create; they use what is around the house first and makeshift something out of something old. Start looking around your house for old paint, and artistic supplies for a more economical project. DIY people like to be inspired from all different sources; magazines, Pinterest, and Kijiji are a few places to check out for new ideas. If you can’t turn old hangers into a picture frame then Home Depot is the next spot on your inspiring adventure.
If you want to get out there with other DIY individuals, there are a few spots in Toronto you must go explore; DesignHer Co. Offers classes that yield gift-worthy goods, fashionable accents, and even inspired solutions to home organization.
