Let's Get Handy!

"It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project." Napoleon Hill

We at SD were feeling a little crafty today and we all know when we want something done right, we need to do it ourselves. Here are some unique crafts anyone could do with just ordinary household tools.

A unique storage bench like this could run upwards of $200. Look what a difference a vintage suitcase, table legs and a little ingenuity makes!

What to do with those unused boards? Turn them into benches!

A plain doormat, fabric of your choice and spray adhesive and voila, you have a beautiful custom doormat.

We cannot believe this project! A $70 Ikea shelf turned into a chic and glamorous shelf. Similar pieces run about $1,500 and up!

This may be the cheapest project...ever! What a wonderful way to add a pop of color. These would also make excellent homemade picture frames.

Finally, a valid reason to keep drinking wine! Check out many more reasons to save those corks.

This is a clever way to capture all those wonderful summer memories. I'm tempted to make one for every season!

Happy crafting!
