10 DIY Projects for Empty Nesters

Memory wall

Finally, instead of purchasing some new artwork for your home, consider creating a memory wall to bring back some of the memories of when your children were younger.

Joanne Cleaver, who writes the " Money Mondays " blog for Bobvila.com, shares these steps for the perfect memory wall.

  • 1. Common items on a memory wall include: photos, graduation tassels, childhood drawings, cards and report cards.
  • 2. Arrange photo frames or timelines that you want to include on the memory wall on a large piece of paper on the floor or on dining room table.
  • Once you have settled on a pleasing arrangement, mark on the paper the point for the nail for each frame. Now, center and level the paper on the wall in the bedroom.

  • 3. Drill through the nail markers on the paper. Pull away the paper and hang your arrangement or timeline.
