In hopes of inspiring you to join us in doing a January Jumpstart project now to share with us later this month, we pulled photos of successful DIY project "afters" from our House Tours on AT: Chicago. Shannon and Emmett built the bookshelves shown above from old stair treads rescued from a coach house and threaded pipe from Home Depot. They said it only took an afternoon to assemble! More below:

Meg & John's Big City Home: A super simple fireplace DIY - Meg had a piece of glass cut to fit the hearth area and back-painted it with glossy white paint. It looks simply amazing in person.
