Industrial Design Do It Yourself Projects



Do you love Industrial Design? All of the exposed brick and leather furniture and metals and warm wood tones make my heart smile! I would LOVE to redo my entire house to make it this style, but the budget doesn’t allow me to do it all at once, so a little at a time is how I am doing it. DIY projects are a must when on a budget, so I reached out to my DIY blogger buds and asked them to give me their best industrial DIY projects to share with you all.  I know you will love them…let’s check them out!
