Definition: DIY

Short for "do-it-yourself," DIY is an adjective used to describe home improvement, decorating, and crafts projects that you could hire a professional to do but instead opt to complete at home on your own. DIY could include everything from construction, lighting, and painting to furniture refinishing, landscaping, and sewing.

Though the term has been around for decades, the DIY philosophy has really caught on over the past 10 years, spawning such media as the DIY Network, devoted to home improvement, and crafty magazines like ReadyMade and Make.
