Shipping pallets are a dime a dozen around the country. Commonly found behind stores (near delivery doors) and occasionally on the side of the road, these versatile and ubiquitous castoffs are a DIYer’s dream material. With a little creativity shipping pallets can be turned into a variety of useful pieces for the home, from coffee tables to headboards to always-needed storage.
Welcome! Like to keep updated on easy DIY projects?! I've been slowly adding details to our new craft and kid rec room .
I feel like there should be a ticker tape parade to start this post. After all my teasing, I finally finished the garage. Honestly, I could have kept on going and painted more windows and shops, maybe a little phone booth but I figured it was time to let go and let Caleb actually play with his garage. And I'm happy to say he loves it. He loves putting his cars through the little tunnels and driving them up the ramp and parking them in the parking lot at the top.
Many, many months ago I mentioned that my mother-in-law bought me some Toms. I was so excited and I wore them a whole lot. I wore them enough to get a hole in the front of them. Here's what they look like now.....
Curbly-Original Welcome to our newest blog series, My Total Office Makeover , in which Curbly's editor-in-chief, Chris Gardner, realizes that as a full-time design and craft blogger working from home, he'd better transform his second bedroom into an inspiring space where work can actually get done. Part IV: Getting Organized I need a clean desktop to stay focused, so I knew I would need a memo board to keep current projects, notes, ideas, and "don't lose me" documents. I seriously dislike the look of white dry-erase boards, and needed something that didn't require pins or thumbtacks to attach documents.
EDITED 11th July 2012: DUE TO SUCH A HUGE AND POSITIVE RESPONSE I STILL RECEIVE FROM THIS POST AND PLAY KITCHEN CREATION I DECIDED TO START AN ALBUM OF ALL THE PLAY KITCHENS MADE FROM TV CABINETS THAT HAVE BEEN INSPIRED BY THIS ONE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME YOUR BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER PICS OF YOUR PLAY KITCHEN TO GIGGLEBERRYCREATIOSN@GMAIL.COM AND I WILL HAPPILY ADD THEM TO THE ALBUM HERE About 6 or so months ago I was floating through 'blog land' as I do from time to time and somehow I stumbled upon Sutton Grace blog, where a particular blog post jumped out at me: A repurposed play kitchen . The very clever Erin of Sutton Grace blog had taken a 2nd hand TV entertainment unit and turned it into a mini kitchen for her little girl. I LOVED this idea sooooo much and sat looking at the blog post for the longest time trying to work out if I could do it myself....

I picked up these drawers on Freecycle . They were salvaged from the kitchen of a 1940s house that was demolished. My original plan was to put the drawers on wheels and use them as under-bed storage.

This mama is driving in style! Ok really. Is it weird that I made my own steering wheel cover? I have the need to make ordinary things in my life look pretty. Well, really not so much pretty, but personalized . I personalize everything !
This is one of my favorite tee refashions of all time. For a number of reasons. First, let me tell you that it wasn't my idea. Jen posted this on her facebook page and I jumped at the chance to have a crafty morning with her and watch her make it. Jen blogs at Upcycled Education -- a blog I recommend you peruse, especially if you're an educator-- formally or informally. She's full of good ideas and fun finds and her enthusiasm is catchy.
we’re always looking for ways to better organize our lives. and after years of starting each day with a visit to one of the most disappointingly disorganized spots in our home we’ve finally decided to do something about it. as shop owners constantly awash in packing materials, the cardboard and giftwrap needed for this project were right under our noses. this diy is a good example that even if no one else in the world (other than a couple bazillion design*sponge readers) is ever going to see it, the simplest of craft projects can make a big impact on your daily routine. have fun!
