Do-able DIY

While Pinterest has its fair share of ideas for fun and easy DIY projects, we see Pinterest Fails all too often- renovations that are hard to execute, crafts that have poor instructions, and art projects that just don’t turn out the way you want them to.

We scoured the site to find three easy, little-to-no assembly required undertakings that won’t look kitschy, crafty, or out of place in your home.

1. Mount wine crates to the wall and use as shelving.

Add touches of color that will help them blend into your room’s decor more easily.


2. Add hooks to an empty frame to create a sophisticated key rack.

We love this idea! Functional and simple.


3. Lean a ladder up against the wall to create a blanket holder.

We love the rustic touch this ladder brings to the room!

More About Scout


Here at Scout, we know that selling a home isn’t as easy as it used to be. So why would we cling to outdated real estate practices? Don’t get us wrong, there’s plenty of classic old-school techniques that are tried and true, but when it comes time to sell your house, there are some new, fresh methods we use that other companies don’t. We embrace the old while keeping up with the new. Simply put, at Scout Nashville we like to have our cake and eat it, too. (We also love to rhyme.)

When you sell your house with Scout, we market your home via our systematic marketing plan. It’s our goal to leverage the trusted relationship we build with you to accomplish this goal in an engaging, service driven, value-adding way. We know how much this generation esteems transparent communication, and we aim to give you just that- we’ll provide you with status updates on your property weekly as well as guide you through every step of buying or selling your home.

As a company, we’re all about core values, while simultaneously working with upcoming non-profits to set new industry standards of giving back. As members of the National Association of Realtors and Next nominees, we’re certified Realtors that have been recognized by Nashville as up-and-coming.

Here on the blog, we’ll share everything from the real estate news you need to know, to household DIY projects and our personal flea market finds. You can expect one of these posts once a week so that we can continuously engage with our amazing Nashville community. So keep reading! We look forward to connecting with you.
