High Functioning Coat Hooks

High Functioning Coat Hooks
Back in Los Angeles, any old coat rack or a few hooks by the door would do. Most of us would just toss a jacket in the back of the car in the winter months. But here in Vermont we need a little more. Many of the vernacular farm houses I visit have at least a half dozen hooks per person lined up in their mud rooms. My wife and I each will have several different coats, jackets and vests in play all winter long. Add to that assorted scarves, hats and gloves, several of each for both of us, and your average coat rack doesn’t stand a chance. Materials, for each hanger you'll need: One cleaned or refinished paint can. 2 screws long enough to reach into wall studs. Tools: Long handled screwdriver or screw gun with sufficient extensions to reach bottom of can. Step one: With the handle in a horizontal position, layout and make 2 small mounting holes at the top and bottom of the can within an inch or less of the edge. Step two: locate and mark stud position on wall for upper screw position.

Trash can made of plastic bottles Hi there here, this it´s about a trash can made up of plastic bottles, its a little bit laborious but it worth it spend a little bit of your time to make it and go green. All you need its a bunch of plastic bottle preferably of the same kind to make it easy. several meters of galvanized thin steel wire a steel frame,a tweezers, a drill and a sharp knife. You need to cut the bottom of the bottle so you can put one bottle in other. then with the drill make a hole in the cup and make another hole in the bottle that you didnt cut. after that put the wire into the two bottles to make a species of skewer of two bottles. make as many of skewers you need to make an entire trash can and then put them in the steel fram using the tweezers to tying the bottles. Trust me at the begining its seem to be hard but with practice it becomes easy and fun

Thrifty and Chic: furniture So, this is one of those stories of getting something and having it sit in your basement for years. Like 7 or so years. Yep. I wish that was uncommon around my house, but it really isn't. But, the bright side of this, is that I actually do get around to making things out of my little findings :) ..even though its more than half a decade later lol. Back in the day, we went to a furniture store....I'm sure to get furniture or something :)...but I don't remember what we got, if anything. diy rope bowls so it's been a while since i've posted anything remotely crafty lately...i suppose i must be getting lazy (technically lazy-er). anyway, i saw this cute bowl on craftgawker over the weekend so i decided to make my own-with my own tutorial 'cause i need the practice anyway right? anyway, it's a pretty simple process, it's actually really similar to my recycle magazine bowl but with rope instead. basically just glue, wrap, glue, wrap, etc, etc. all you need is a hot glue gun and rope. i got my rope for $2-it's 50 ft, 1/4 inch, manila rope (i almost went with the sisal but i liked the color of the manila more).

There Will Be Tables and Chairs… We’ve been desperately needing bedside tables since we moved into our new place. I’ve been looking around for some to buy, keeping in mind that (a)the bedroom is super tiny and (B) we have a malm bed and dresser and wanted something that didn’t look too “Ikea”. So we came up with these. We took a quick trip to the Ikea in Richmond and Home Depot on Friday night and built them on Saturday. I was very much inspired by these two pieces:
