DIY projects to make for the home

Here's a small round-up of goodies to make for your house. On your lunch hour, really, since a mid-century bench shouldn't take more than ten minutes to whip up. Ha. Have fun making!

Welllll... I could do any project that doesn't require water... or at least 'clean' water, anyway. :(

I've been reading your blog for over a year now and have never commented... Shame on me. I just wanted to let you know that your blog is one of my faves!! Thanks for all the freebies and tutorials that you post. I am definitely going to make the mid-century modern bench! Also, I love your fabric line!

Inkodye looks like a fun, less messy way to try batik. Just curious if you've road-tested it yet?

Jessica Jones said...

I haven't tried it myself, but it looks intriguing...

Whoa. Off to checkout the beanbag chair. I have a ton of fabric scraps I could stuff it with.

Oh, and I'm with the Fraziers! Your blog was the first i ever read, I looove the freebies, the tutorials, the roundups and your fabrics, but I don't post comments nearly enough. *Hangs head with Shame* So Sorry!

So I'd never heard of Inkodye, but now I am completely intrigued! I think even my 3 year old would love to make a project with it and see the colors develop. Wow. So cool!

The DIY table is so cool!

I needed to stop by & tell you how much I love checking your blog! Although I don't really have a lot of orange items - I do derive "energy" from seeing the "color of one of my fave fruits" used in all sorts of design.
Thanks for continuing to search the web & post the freebies, tutorials and time-wasters!!
Love it ALL!
