Open House: What Was Your Most Successful DIY?

For crafters and DIYers, a few failures are par for the course. That's part of the reason why successful DIY projects are such a coup. I've had my share of successes and failures, and I'm currently in the middle of one of my more ambitious projects ever. I find myself fretting over it, since I'm not sure if it's going to completely work out yet, and there are still several steps to complete.

One of my favorite DIY projects was refurbishing a wood and canvas canoe with my father. It was a project that took a long time to complete, but the end result was absolutely amazing. I loved paddling around the lake in the canoe, knowing that we'd made that moment possible thanks to our hard work.

This table, shown above, was also a collaboration between a parent and grown child. You can read more about it here. But before you do, tell me a little about your most successful DIY project. Was it quick and easy? Or did it take lots of love, elbow grease, and patience?

Mine was probably my back patio. Dug a hole that was 11 feet by 14 feet by 8" deep with a shovel, put in stone, sand and laid big pavers on my own. It looks great, and it's the best hang out spot! Our next project is a headboard for our bed. It will be a dark stained frame with a cut out in the top and a removable fabric covered insert. We'll see how that turns out!
