Mon makes things: Storage Ottoman DIY

Mon makes things: Storage Ottoman DIY
I love crafts. I love DIY. My biggest DIY crush? Furniture redoing/making. I can't get enough. It takes every fiber of my being to keep myself from "rescuing" every tossed out piece of furniture I see along the side of the road {boyfriend, friends, and family frown upon my frequent adoption of such items}. I am currently in the process of replacing my hand-me-down couch, and wanted a new coffee table or ottoman to replace my cheap and wobbly IKEA table that I broke in college a few years ago. I loved the storage capacity and the fact that it was on casters, but I really needed something boyfriend could put his feet on... Now, prepare yourself... **I got my crates from Michael's using those wonderful 50%-off coupons, so my crates were less than $7 a piece (gotta love coupons!). Build the Structure:Arrange your crates like so: Place one crate on the floor/work surface so that the opening is facing down. At this point, your table will look like this! Upholster a Top: Finish the Ottoman:

Denim Covered Pencil Can This denim covered can is perfect for holding markers, pens, pencils, scissors or paintbrushes. Use scrap fabric and recycled blue jeans to make this fun pencil holder for your office, craft room, school art room or even a homework desk. A fun recycling project for any age! I use this can in my craft room to hold my older paintbrushes, the ones that I let kids use when they want to. I really like the look that the denim provides, so I will probably be making several more of these as well! It’s really simple.

Fishtail Braided Anchor Bracelet I have been obsessed with stripes lately, mainly blues or reds against white. Such a classic combination!

Beautiful/Decay Cult of the Creative Arts - StumbleUpon Gabriel Moreno does beautiful work with such basic materials: a pen and a brush. His illustrations begin in black and white, upon which Moreno builds, adding layers of color and images of other places and people tattooed into their skin. Flowers, birds, and faces organically expand from his subjects, as if a rush of creativity, or a dream, is escaping them.
