This is a great use for those cabinet doors I picked up for free at a local cabinet shop. Since I don't have human children and my 4-legged kids don't draw, I'm thinking I could make a couple of these to put above my desk and hold mail or work that needs attention. Maybe put greeting cards on one to make me feel good.

Pillow Mattress... or a cheap sleeping bag mat for tent camping.
DIY Pillow Mattress - 4 pillows and 3 yards of fabric- this would be awesome for an adult movie night too! no more hard floor
Pillow mattress -- it's a good idea for kids, but I want one too ; )
Pillow Mattress. The total cost for pillows and pillowcases is about $25. You get the cheapest pillows and cases you can find. If you want the bed really poofy, cut the pillow cases down to fit more snugly around the pillows. The result is a very poofy, soft pillow bed that any little boy or girl would love!
Pillow mattresses for kids. Cute idea.

DIY LEGO Travel Box - It turned out super cute! I used this blogger's idea, but Mod Podged the child's name on one side and "Traveling Legos" on the other. I used this box, but upside-down and then used a small slat of wood to cover the hole in the bottom. http://shop.hobbylobby.com/store/item.aspx?ItemId=158530

by painting a board, sanding around the edges, painting a wire and 2 love birds. Or....find silhouettes of birds and use your cutter (Cricut or Shilhouette, etc) to make a stencil or make a slide decal. Better yet...find an artsy friend who could paint the birds in less than 5 minutes. Happy creating!

I can see an easy DIY project for this piece of artwork. There is no tutorial since this piece is for sale. However, I think you can easily recreate it by painting a board, sanding around the edges, painting a wire and 2 love birds. Or....find silhouettes of birds and use your cutter (Cricut or Shilhouette, etc) to make a stencil or make a slide decal. Better yet...find an artsy friend who could paint the birds in less than 5 minut
Oh the possibilites :) Not fond of the colors. Thinking I may have found the perfect idea for a pic in our bedroom!

DIY PROJECT: Recycled Pallet Vertical Garden. Turn an old pallet into a beautiful garden.. #recycle #green #gardening #craft #diy
diy project: recycled pallet vertical garden Summer is waning, and since I am a diehard autumnal girl, I’d usually be very excited by now. But I have to be honest — this lush and vibrant pallet vertical garden is making me want to stay in summer for another month or two. There have been many pallet projects and many vertical garden projects, but none combine the two elements as well as this tutorial developed by Fern Richardson of Life on the Balcony and recreated by Steph of the local spoon. I like this so much, I might have to squeeze it in before I focus entirely on fall projects. — Kate Have a DIY project you’d like to share? Shoot me an email with your images right here!

I happened to have a teeny porch desperately in need of love that didn’t get a lot of sun, so succulents were the perfect low-water, low-light choice. I also loved the idea of making something out of a pallet, one of those items you see everywhere — you have to wonder what happens to all of them, and I was excited to give one a purpose and home on my neglected porch. It transformed the space and was easy and lots of fun to make (the best part of all might have been my trip to the nursery where I could buy adorable baby succulents to my heart’s content). — Stephanie Materials a pallet (I found mine for free at a local garden store — mine measured 25 x 38 inches) roll of landscaping paper (this can be quite expensive, but you don’t need as much as comes in a typical landscaping roll, so you might be able to find someone’s excess on Craigslist or at a local garden shop) sandpaper staple gun and staples hammer and nails potting soil (I used 2.5 cubic feet for the 25 x 38 pallet) adorable succulents or other plants of choice Instructions 1. Sand down any rough spots on your pallet. If the back of your pallet doesn’t have much support (mine was basically open on the back), find some scrap wood, roughly 3 to 4 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick (or the thickness of the rest of your supports) and cut it down to the width of your pallet. Using two nails on each side, add supports so they are roughly even down the back of your pallet. 2. Double or triple up your landscaping fabric and begin the stapling fun. Staple fabric along the back, bottom and sides of the pallet, taking care at the corners to fold in the fabric so no soil will spill out. (See photos for details on folding corners.) 3. Lay the pallet flat and pour potting soil through slats, pressing soil down firmly. Leave enough room to begin planting your succulents. 4. Begin planting, starting at the bottom of the pallet and ending at the top. Make sure soil is firmly packed in each layer as you move up. Add more soil as needed so that plants are tightly packed at the end. 5. Water your wall garden thoroughly and let it remain horizontal for 1 to 2 weeks to allow plants to take root. After 1 to 2 weeks, you can set it upright. Note: Remember when you water to start at the top and water each subsequent section a little less, as your water will naturally seep through to the bottom-most plants. Enjoy!
An old wood pallet is transformed into a vertical garden
Bet you could do this with herb gardens and certain vegetables - like onions, lettuces and carrots, you may have to leave it horizontal. Theoretically you could screw 2 pallets together to get a deeper growing depth. hmmmm diy project: recycled pallet vertical garden.
