Throughout our 15 years at Design*Sponge, I’ve seen our projects (and their reception) run the gamut. From super-practical up-cycling ideas that look simple and unfussy, to much more challenging and detailed projects that create a mega high-end look, our projects have a little bit of something for everyone. And then there are projects like this one: our #1 spot on the countdown. I lovingly refer to these types of projects as D-I-Y-not? projects. Because they are all about fun and not about needing to be 100% practical or purposeful. The goal is to spend a little bit of time making something handmade, whimsical, and sure to make you smile. So here we are, our most popular project of all time are these DIY Tiny Doors!
Tiny door (and tiny house) projects have seen a huge resurgence in the past few years, but anything miniature seems to be popular all the time. So these fun little door DIYs that Kate Benbow made for us are perfect for fun around the house, any time you feel like making one. As we close this chapter of our DIY archives, I’m thrilled to end on a note that reminds us how fun and cheerful DIY can be. It doesn’t always have to be practical or hard — sometimes DIY can be a quick little how-to that makes you smile every time you walk by. And on that note, happy crafting! xo, Grace
