29 Store Resources for D.I.Y. Projects, Home Decor, & Furniture

Today is February 29th! Seeing as how this day happens only every four years, I thought that it would be fun to celebrate the 2016 Leap Year by sharing 29 store resources for D.I.Y. projects, home decor, and furniture. This list is really helpful because now you have more of a concrete idea of where exactly you can purchase the exact items you need for your home. I’ve mentioned whether the stores are brick & mortar (meaning you can shop on the ground) or if its just purely online. I’ve also tried to share where exactly in the world they are located so that you have more of an idea of the location of the store.

Keep reading so that you can see the resource list. 🙂

1.Target: Brick & mortar & Online shopping | Some International Locations, including Australia

2.Walmart: Brick & mortar & Online Shopping| Some International Locations [beware of the quality of the items you purchase from Wal-Mart. A lot of the items aren’t very good quality hence why they are so inexpensive nor do they last very long. I’ve purchase bookcases & poster frames that have NOT stood the test of time & have fallen apart. Some smaller decor items from them may be fine like a throw pillow or bath accessories even a poster print but for major furniture pieces (including picture frames), I suggest a different store.]
