6 Canadian DIY Instagram Accounts We Love

So, you found a great set of chairs on Tradyo!  Congratulations!

But, they need love and attention.  Where do you find inspiration? How do you keep up with colour and design trends?

I love Instagram when I need some fresh ideas.  Instagram is a treasure trove for the DIY-er.  From recycled clothing to up-cycled housewares, decor ideas, and refinished/refurbished furniture, Instagram accounts provide inspiration and evoke envy!

Whether I am searching for a way to recover a retro couch I found on Tradyo, or when I have items I want to list, I can browse my favourite Instagrammers and find out what’s in demand and on-trend.

Our team at Tradyo found 10 fantastic Canadian DIY Instagram accounts that we think everyone should follow:

Located on Queen Street West, Toronto, The Toronto Designer’s Market features over 30 different designers ranging from furniture and household items to clothing and jewellery. Follow their Instagram Account here.
