An Easy Guide To Pinterest's Best Spring Projects


Pinterest is all the rage (even we have one!) for do-it-yourself projects around your home. Ryan Homes at Brunswick Crossing spent some time scrolling through Pinterest for our favorite spring projects for your home, and here are our top picks:

  • Repurpose an old door. If you have a spare door (with plenty of windows) lying around, you’re in luck. Touch it up with a little paint, add some hooks, and put pictures behind the glass to make a giant DIY picture frame. Find reference pictures and instructions here.

  • Change up your cleaning caddy. Purchase a few inexpensive cleaning caddies from your local superstore for a 30-minute DIY project for your home office. Spray-paint the cleaning caddies in matte black for a stylish touch, then hot-glue a small chalkboard sign on the front. Mount your new mini industrial caddies on the wall, and you have the most paper organization system. Take it from Hometalk

  • Use a shower curtain as wall art. If you don’t want to splurge on modern wall art, we understand. Instead, nail together a few pieces of plywood then hot-glue a cool shower curtain to it. It sounds crazy, but before you know it, you’ll have a neat piece of art like this – for less.

  • Create a DIY chalk menu board. Make meal planning easier with this easy DIY weekend project that should look a little something like this when you're done:

  1. Measure the desired size of your menu board

  2. Cut plywood pieces accordingly

  3. Nail together plywood pieces

  4. Brush on chalkboard paint in the center

  5. Paint a few coats of a fun color on the frame

  6. Evenly space out wooden coasters for the days of the week along the left side

  7. Personalize it with your handwriting 

  • Copy store-bought zinc letters. Spruce up any room in your home by purchasing wooden letters from your local craft store. While you’re there, grab black acrylic paint, silver metallic paint, a bristle paintbrush, and a sponge paintbrush. Once you’ve got the supplies, follow this simple DIY tutorial from Lolly Jane.

  • Brighten up your wooden kitchen utensils. If you have some less-than-sightly, unused wooden utensils in your kitchen, it’s time for a makeover. Grab some masking tape and paint and follow the do-it-yourself tutorials from Bespoke Bride.

  • Upgrade your space with stone or brick. You don’t need a contractor to install stone or brick when you have a few easy instructions from this expert DIY blog. Armed with their know-how and some Faux Panels, your home will be upgraded in a matter of hours.

  • Add mirrors to your bedroom closet doors. Mirrors give the illusion of more space (even in your backyard), so glue beveled mirror inserts to the outside of your bedroom closet doors for a stylish and roomier look like this.

Everyone loves a good DIY project from Pinterest. They’re a fun addition to your weekend to-do list, and you feel accomplished for creating store-worthy projects for less.
