Hands up if you’ve ever gone on to YouTube for one thing and 2 hours + 27 videos later, you couldn’t remember how you ended up there to begin with? That’s totally me when it comes to DIY and home decor videos on YouTube. lol
If you need some DIY and home decor inspiration, I’m sharing a few of the YouTube channels I’ve been following for great DIY ideas plus awesome home decor and home organization tips, especially for small spaces.
There are two types of channels I follow: those which feature predominantly DIY decor projects, at varying levels of DIYer abilities and those which provide great home decor and organization advice, especially for small spaces.
While I do follow some other DIY and home decor channels, today I wanted to highlight my favourite ones that I’ve been following for a while and which have provided a lot of inspiration for projects I would like to do for my own home. I hope you’ll be inspired as well!
I’ve been following Kelsey and Becky for several months now and may have binge-watched half their videos when I first discovered them. #dontweall
Their DIY channel does feature a lot of woodworking, which involves power tools. However, there are loads of DIYs which can be replicated with tools that are more beginner-friendly, as in glue and scissors. I love their personalities and the fact that they’ve been doing these projects for years.
Two of the main features of their channel are attempting to replicate designer items on a budget and making items from dollar store purchases. Because you all know that sometimes the cost of home decor items can make your eyes twitch. #thatcostshowmuuuuch
These are a few of my favourites:
Sharrah has such a fun personality, I really do enjoy watching her videos. What I like the MOST is that her home really is a small space and the ways she’s maximised storage are really great. She also does a lot of renter-friendly videos since they rent an apartment.
These are a couple of my favourites:

- ORGANIZE: Hacks to Organize a SMALL CLOSET | Making the Most of Our Small Closet
Erika is an Irish gal living in a small NYC apartment (she recently moved though). Although her channel isn’t exclusively DIY or home decor, I absolutely love her style! She gives some awesome examples of how you can make a rental space your own. I think we are also kindred spirits when it comes to using spray paint and contact paper to upgrade a space.
My aesthetic is definitely mainly glam and she pulls off that interior style really well.

Rachel has a more industrial/rustic style with lots of wood tones but I do like how she puts together a space with some great DIYs included.
Some of her projects are more in the medium DIY range but you’ll definitely find some inspiration and projects you may also be able to replicate. She includes some quirkiness in her decor which makes my inner quirk sing. 😀

While preparing this blog post I came across a few other DIY and home decor YouTube channels so I’ll do a second round-up of those once I’ve been following them for a bit.
In the meantime, are there other YouTube channels you also follow for inspiration? Let me know in the comments so we can check them out!
