She might be an infant and toddler developmental therapist during the day, but blogger Chelsea is passionate about home improvement.

If you're addicted to Pinterest, you've probably seen this rustic DIY love headboard made from salvaged fence boards. Ain't it gorgeous?!? Dana uses her blog House Tweaking to chronicle her latest home decor projects. She recently downsized from a huge builder basic home to a small 1950s ranch, which she is fully renovating.

If you're fans of the uberpopular Young House Love couple, you'll love the latest DIYing couple who are chronicling their home adventures on Chris Loves Julia. Looking for motivation to use dark colors in your space? Their use of dramatic dark colors as seen on their DIY dark wainscoting project and navy blue kitchen cabinets will have you running to the paint store.

Tricia used her blog to help turn her 1980s into a home more in line with her style of "casual, coastal and vintage-cottage-classic." The vintage industrial bedroom she created for her teenage son is insanely stylish — especially the DIY plank wall. Don't miss her IKEA hacks, like this faux aged steel cabinet inspired by Restoration Hardware.
