Projects you can do with limited materials

Hey yall. This is a weird time. We’re all at home and trying to make the best of the situation while we wait. I’m praying for the sick, for the working, for families who are hungry or worried about job security. God is so good and He’s got us.

I thought I would round up some projects I’ve done that can be done for free or with limited materials. Maybe they’ll give you some ideas if you’re chomping at the bit for a project.

You can replace the window frame in your door to modernize it and make it easier to clean. This one costs more but makes a big difference and the link to the product is from a small business. Win. Win.

Hope some of these give you ideas. I think most products can be bought online or maybe you already have some of it on hand. I’m not doing in person consults but I’m still offering e design if you want to get a jump start on a room while you have a little more down time.

Hang in there friends. Take care of yourself. It’s ok to feel all the feels but know that you’re loved and not alone.

Thanks for reading, friends.
