Fun DIY Blogs to Check Out this Week

As a newbie DIYer, I’d like to share a few of my favourite seasoned DIY bloggers who have grown successfully in this niche. DIY blogging takes a lot of creativity and time, especially for home decor projects.

As a renter that cannot afford the super expensive decor pieces but likes to have a nice looking space, I appreciate it when I find DIY tutorials that are both easy and fun and these bloggers are the perfect go-tos.


Paper & Stitch

Brittni Mehlhoff

When I started looking for DIY blogs for some decor ideas, I stumbled on Brittni’s blog and I think I spent a few hours navigating her blog because it’s packed with content on DIY, fashion, beauty and more.

Brittni is the founding editor / art director / stylist of Paper & Stitch, which she started 11 years ago as a place to share her inspirations.

It soon turned into a full-time job. Brittni has worked with brands like Delta Faucet and has been featured on HGTV, Better Homes and Gardens, Elle Interior and Apartment Therapy.

Her instagram is an extension of her blog and I always look forward to her posts and stories.

Sugar & Cloth

Ashley Rose

At some point, before I decided to stick with the natural, earthy theme for my insta, I wanted to try posting bright colours on my feed to create an aesthetic and Ashley’s page was my inspiration.

I soon found out that she had a blog - checked it out and I’ve been a regular reader ever since. She creates exciting content and DIY projects that are both easy and fun.

Ashley’s love for pastel colours can be seen on her blog, her work with brands and even in her home.

Oh, you should check out the Sugar & Cloth Colour Wall too. It’s gorgeous!

Grillo Designs

Medina Grillo

I relate with Medina’s DIY projects the most because she’s a renter like me. She understands that not everyone can afford an interior designer and creates content to inspire renters to DIY, decorate and upcycle pieces to create a nice space.

Her tutorials are very creative - like this Jute Lamp Shade and the materials you need are usually easy to find (and let’s not forget affordable).

I’ve seen posts on her blog from hacking IKEA furniture to changing flooring without removing the existing ones to even completely transforming under a staircase.

If you love mid century industrial/ rustic decor, Medina’s blog should be bookmarked on your computer.

Monica Mangin

You know when you search for one Youtube video and then the list of videos on the side of your screen just keep tempting you? Then you fall into the temptation and binge a bunch of them? That’s exactly how I discovered the creative genius that is Monica Mangin.

Funny thing is, I don’t even remember what I initially was looking for. The first Monica video I watched was on how to transform your bathroom on a budget on Lowe’s Youtube channel.

From there, I went on to watch The Weekender - which is a series hosted by Monica where she transforms spaces by working on 5 projects in a single weekend.

Whoa! I was so impressed with the idea of the series and even more impressed with Monica’s work. The before and afters were amazing.

I’ve watched every single Weekender episode on Youtube and have a list of ideas I’ll be applying in my own apartment.

She does have a blog where she posts some DIY content and also lists items that were used in her weekender videos.

If you ever want some inspiration for your space, I’d suggest you watch a couple of her videos. You will not regret it.


Oh Joy

Joy Cho

I guess I’ve got a story for every DIY blogger in this post LOL. Anyhoo, I was looking into Pinterest and how I could grow so I did a quick Google search on people that have high monthly viewers on Pinterest and that was how i discovered Joy Cho.

At the time, she had the highest number of monthly viewers on Pinterest (haven’t been able to do any research since then).

Joy Cho is a graphic designer, blogger and entrepreneur. One visit to her site will tell you that she’s a huge fan of colour and she’s very creative from her work with big name brands like Cle Tile, Calpak, Erin Condren and more.
