Ikea Hack: Billy Built-in Bookshelves (Part 1)
This would be great on a kid's craft table!
A tiered stand made from vintage pie plates, with a rolling pin center — made by Kaytie Yost, a.k.a. Seelamade on Etsy. If you have a miter saw and an old rolling pin that’s warped and/or cracked (i.e., no longer useful as a rolling pin!), you could try making your own caddy, like Jane of Mamie Jane’s blog did. Jane’s post about it is here. Find more kitchen-related repurposing here.

We've spotted an ingenious way to make a shelf unit out of used wine bottles, discarded planks of wood, and a bit of hardware. We also spent time recently at the West Coast Green show, and we've been blogging the highlights. For example: we explain why Icynene spray insulation can save so much energy... and why some green-minded folks don't like it. More creative reuse: striking art made from junk mail, and eleven ways to put empty egg cartons to work. Links—as always—after the jump.
