Take a Look at These DIY Home Projects by a Preschool Teacher and Her Family

Create a unique and personalized space!


Going the do-it-yourself route when it comes to decorating and upgrading your home gives one the satisfaction of being able to create something new and beautiful out of either plain materials or old items. DIY projects afford you a more customized look, giving your space a more personal touch.

Preschool teacher Crystal Valiente and her family find joy in thrifting and giving new life to items that usually would be either sold or disposed. From old dining sets to shoe racks, there are endless possibilities when one indulges in creativity.

Check out a few of their projects in the video below—it may just inspire you to start your own!
