Are the DIY decoration ideas cheaper?
Many people think that the DIY decoration ideas are basically cheaper. This point can be discussed for a long time. This is probably true if you already have the necessary materials at home anyway. Take furniture from car tires as an example. You might already have a few at home.
But if you want to set up a whole garden with DIY furniture and decorating tires, then you need a larger number of such.
You also need materials for upholstery, tools, and a good deal of time and patience. Instead of all this effort, you can work a few hours more and buy new furniture. With all the cheap offers in the shops, the balance is often positive in favor of the finished furniture purchased.
