One of our favorite things to look for in our Nursery and Room Tours is the personal DIY touches that have been in worked in. They are truly what makes a room look like a haven instead of a page from a magazine. After the jump, there's a few of our favorites!

Here's a few of our favorite projects, have you seen one we missed that has inspired you? Let us know in the comments below!

Letters of Love: We love it when parents make something for their children, but just as sweet (if not more so) is a sibling making something. That's the case over in Parker's Black and White Beauty. A basic letter found at the craft store was painted up by the 5-years-the-wiser brother for his new pal. A bang up job and a mark of love!

Window Treatments: We've seen many a DIY window treatment and all have turned out fabulous, but we truly fell in love with these linen Roman shades over at Polly's Happy Place. Not only are they are fabulous pop of color, but are a great change up from the traditional drapery.

New Life In Painted Furniture: We have a soft spot for vintage furniture that's saved from the dumpsters and garage sales of the world and given new life with some TLC and a coat of paint. The green dresser in Scarlet's Sensational Secondhand Space is just that type. Total for the project, $30!

Wall Murals: When it comes right down to it, paint is the cheapest way to dress up anything and everything. From walls to lighting, it makes anything look hip and new. In Luc's Robotronic Lair, all the artwork is handmade, but more importantly, the giant show-stopping wall mural takes center stage. It's a great way to personalize the space without turning to vinyl stickers or canvases.

Words of Wisdom: Although we try to teach our children all we can, being able to grow up with printed words of advice or love is something special. Over in Jullian's Music-Filled Room his mom made 4 prints that hang next to his closet. They read, love, love, dream, explore and is a great overall theme to this space.
