Celebrate the Year of the DIY

December 18, 2017

From a solar-powered light fixture to an elevated pet bowl stand, 2017 was the year of the DIY at LiveAbode! Let's take a look back at your most-loved projects from the past 12 months.

Boxful of Flower Power

Recycle an old window with this flower planter project, which can be used year round to showcase seasonal flowers and arrangements.

Elevated Pet Dining

Improve your pet dining experience with a bowl that makes feeding and cleanup easier. This project uses inexpensive, durable PVC trim boards from Royal® Building Products.

Board Up and Batten Down

Creating and installing your own PVC shutters is one of the simplest ways to add a pop of curb appeal with low-maintenance durability― while saving hundreds of dollars.

A Chandelier of Curb Appeal

A thrift store chandelier is given new life with a coat of spray paint, flower pots and soil. This beautiful hanging planter is the perfect addition to your front porch, eave or backyard tree.

Stunning and Sustainable Light

Add light to your outdoor space without the cost of wiring or electricity with this DIY solar lamp. All the materials you need can be found at your local home improvement store.
