Suspended Gardens I just might attempt to create this. Looks simple enough, right? A couple of 9" terra-cotta pots, spray paint, flower pot hangers and some wood screws...boom, a suspended garden. Isn't it a lovely look? P.S. If you fear DIY, you can always buy off the wall planters instead.

Moss Panels Posted by ReadyMade Project by BOA; words by Kiera Coffee; photo by Bryan McCay Some designers invent their collections from one dedicated notion or theme. BOA’s line of eco-conscious beds, storage units, stools, and tables is more the result of a chain of inspired reactions.

Laundry Soap Despite all the enthusiasm over making homemade laundry detergent recently…I continue to hear murmurings from those who just can’t bring themselves to grate soap and cook it on the stove. It apparently just isn’t going to happen. :-) I’m not naming any names…but my older sister would probably freely admit she didn’t decide to even attempt making her own laundry detergent UNTIL I told her about this “new” recipe I was testing out. (I know it seems like I’m always “picking on” her…but she called me a “brat” on her blog recently…so she pretty much deserves it. lol). Once again I have to credit the incredible readers of this blog for my inspiration. Tiffanie posted this on February 4th….A close friend of mine has been making laundry soap like this one for years, until just recently she found an easier one to make and passed it on to us.

Woodgrain Rug hi y'all. i am super excited to share this fun little project with you. it's a do-it-yourself faux bois rug. i purchased all the supplies for this project for under $10 (YAY!) and it took me about 2 hours to complete. this is one of those ideas that was sitting in my journal for WELL over a year, glad to finally make it happen! what you'll need: a tan rug (any plain & simple rug is cool. i purchased mine for $5 at Target.), 3 pieces of poster board, brown spray paint, a warm (& not too windy) afternoon. step 1: draw a woodgrain pattern on one piece of poster board (although, if i were doing this over i would use contact paper instead of poster board for better adhesion!). drawing a woodgrain pattern is surprisingly easy, the trick is the include lots of 'knots' in your wood so that it doesn't look like zebra stripes. next up, spray painting. take your time and get a nice even coat all over the rug. examine it closely and make sure you don't have spots before you pull your mask up.

Homemade Folding Camping Stools A folding camping stool provides a dry, comfortable place to sit while you rest or eat at the campsite. It can also serve as a work surface, table for dining, or as a desk for writing or planning your activities. Good-quality folding camping stools can be expensive; build your own to save some money and enjoy an easy DIY project. Design Considerations During the design phase of your project, be sure to consider the weight and size of the person who will use the stool most often. Mason Jar Candle Chandeliers Safety is a big issue when you have open flames in a huge wooden building, so we decided that making a wire hoop to hang the jars on would be the safest way to go. We tested the first run with taller candles then we plan to use so the flame would get as close to the twine as possible. The results: we could not get it to burn even after letting it go for 6+ hours. For this step you will need a coat hanger or other piece of wire as well as a pair of needle-nose and lineman pliers.
