DIY TIPS HINTS AND IDEAS

Ideas about building YOUR dream home office on a budget. DIY projects and plans. 

Why am I so interested in getting you to work on DIY projects?  Well, this fits in with my philosophy about creating a home office that is productive and WILL fit your budget!  Lots can be accomplished when you do it yourself – rather than paying for it to be done. Doing the work yourself allows you to reuse, recyle and renovate. All of these strategies save the environment and save money, as discussed here.

Even better than saving money. . . Wait – is there anything better than saving money? Yes, when you DIY, your confidence in a job well-done explodes. By creating projects yourself  and placing them in your office, you experience a sense of accomplishment – over and over. Believe me, that can be very important when you have your own business.

Another important reason for pursuing DIY projects? The health benefits you accrue. What do I mean by that? Well, we all know that sitting at a desk all day can be bad for your health. However, just getting up and walking around will counteract the negative impact of sitting for long periods. Also, I have discovered that when I work on DIY projects, my mind is free to wander. In the process, I often solve problems that bothered me. Like magic, a solution appears when I am not looking for it.

What does all this mean for you?  We offer many tips, hints, tutorials and suggestions for DIY-building a home office.  Stop by often to see what new ideas we have found.  Check out some of the blog posts below. And, share what you discover about DIY.
