We at PureWow love a good DIY as much as the next gal. But those laborious, weekend-consuming endeavors aren't exactly our idea of a good time. That's why we went ahead and rounded up these seven projects, each one easy enough to pull off in a single sitting. And as for that "beginner level" dip-dyed ombre table-runner? Well, Martha wasn't built in a day.
