DIY : Simple Clothing Rack : Simplified Building

This super simple clothing rack is also super affordable. We’ve been talking about something similar to this for an entry way storage option. I like how the hangers would hang parallel to the wall. Yup.

Drive It Like You Stole It by HaHaBird

You could totally make this, but I’m not sure why you would.

Why; what’s wrong with sewing your own underwear? I made a pattern out of a favorite pair of mine, and now I have undies that fit me perfectly. 

I made it for my boyfriend’s nephew Henry, who is pictured above investigating his new present. I got the idea from this kitchen I saw on Young House Love

To make it, I bought an old cabinet at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store and framed it out underneath so it’d be a bit taller. The top is an old door from a different cabinet, with a piece of trim nailed to it for the backsplash. 

The oven door was the hardest part. I had to jigsaw a big rectangle out of the cabinet door, frame it with mitered trim pieces, and glue a piece of plexiglass to it. I told Henry’s parents not to bring a level anywhere near the play kitchen or it’d probably explode.

Like the kitchen on YHL, this one has a metal bowl for a sink, with a real faucet and a hot-water handle that moves. Apparently Henry’s favorite thing is to give his toys a bath in the sink.

Henry’s other favorite thing is magnets, so I painted the other cabinet door with like 50 coats of magnetic primer. Boy, that stuff is temperamental. I had to stir it constantly, and there was still a huge chunk of metal shavings in the middle of the can that wouldn’t break up. You can see in the photo above that Henry already put some of his magnets on it.

I think he likes it!

Allen & I made these 4 birdhouses in about an hour tonight!  We used this site as a basic model, but you gotta make the floor 5.5”, they are crazy with that 4” nonsense!  TOO SMALL!   Anyway, I use one rough-hewn cedar fence plank with no knots, about $3 at Home Depot, for each bird house.  If you make 4 at once, there’s enough scrap to make a small chickadee house when you’re done!  :)   (This is the second set of these we’ve made, I made a bunch last year, and the birds LOVED THEM!!!)

Embroidered Sunglasses | Honestly WTF

You guys know how I’m a little bit obsessed with cross stitch at the moment, so you wouldn’t be surprised to know how excited I was to see this DIY! It does require you to use a drill to make the holes but once that’s done you’re gold. Maybe practice on a cheap pair before your ‘good’ ones. Also make sure that whatever you design doesn’t cover your eyes!

These are pretty cute! Definitely use a cheap pair of sunglasses, though.

Wrapped Peach Aventurine Ring DIY — Bettina’s Blog - Something handmade

Ooh, this is a swell idea! Though I think half hard wire would work just as well as dead soft.
