If you’ve ever coveted one of those designer, distressed-wood coffee tables, here’s your chance to make your own and save a whole lot of loot while you’re at it. This DIY was done by our very own Bridgette Meinhold for only $5, which is probably less than the cost of the large soy lattes you and your partner can chug while you’re building it. Made of old shipping pallets, it even has a storage area to keep your various remotes and magazines. And did we mention it only cost $5?!
If DIY solar bags seem a little too complicated for you, how about starting small with matching recycled iPhone cases?
