DIY Projects For The Holiday Weekend

What better way to celebrate Labor Day than by laboring on a few of your own DIY projects? Sure, the weekend is typically spent saying a three-day farewell to summer, but with an extra day off, you’ll have time to work and play!
To help get your inspiration going, we’ve compiled a round-up of some of our favorite projects that won’t bust your budget–or take up your entire weekend.

+ Need to make room for guests or maximize a small space? A Murphy bed will do the trick.
+ Cooler temperatures make this a great time of year to install a fire pit.
+ Brighten up your abode with a simple yet striking glass ball chandelier.
+ Does the recent egg recall have you concerned about your food? Build a chicken coop and get fresh eggs from your backyard!
+ Add style and function to your living room with this clever coffee table that also doubles as a bench.
+ Do you crave the quiet elegance of a French bistro but can’t quite afford the international airfare? Use these techniques to patina a mirror (or several) and voila – immediate bistro in your own home!
Let us know your Labor Day DIY plans and how your projects turn out!
