Reworked my space thanks to Zach finding a beautiful vintage Ethan Allen desk for free dollars on Craigslist, which now lives in his mancave, and his old Frankendesk is now my second sewing table. #crafts #sunshine #studio #cats
I can’t believe it’s been a year already.. Happy birthday baby princess!! I love you so much. You make our not so little family complete.
Nifty way of converting an unused bottle into a lamp:
Popping off the faux cork top reveals a standard USB connector for charging off AC adapters or your computer, and with a simple twist the bright white LED can be turned on or off. An hour’s charge gets you about two and a half hours of light, which is just enough time to serve dinner, enjoy some conversation, and then subtly hint that it’s time for your guests to head home.
Spring project idea: Make your own outdoor seating …
Every so often, I not only look at Pinterest, but I actually find a pin showcasing a project I’d like to learn more about.
One such example was this DIY outdoor seating project that uses pre-owned cushions, a dozen concrete block units, and four fence posts. Intrigued, I clicked through the pin and found a simple tutorial.
If you’d like to make something like this but don’t already have all the materials, have a look at Freecycle to see if someone in your area has some thing(s) you could use. A home-improvement reuse store — such as a Habitat for Humanity ReStore — in your community may have useful items. (For Habitat ReStore locations, look here.)
I’ve long since closed Pinterest, and don’t recall whose Pinterest “outdoor seating” pin I originally saw, but, well, thanks, Internet!
BTW, Unconsumption’s on Pinterest: here.
I make these for my girls :)
