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. 🙂 Continue reading
