PUT A CORK IN IT

If you and your better half are oenophiles, this little project from crafter extraordinaire Danny Seo is the perfect way for you to use up all of the corks you’ve amassed. If you haven’t saved your corks, you can always start now or even hit up your local bar or restaurant. Then all you need is a shadow box or frame and you’ll have a super-absorbent, designer DIY cork mat that you made with your own four hands.

TWO BAGS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

Have you heard of “pair look” – the trend where couples and families wear matching clothes to signify their closeness? Well, if you like the idea of matching with your partner but wearing identical outfits is a little too extreme for you, why not make a coordinating pair of solar bags? Not only is it a great way to recycle bags that you already own, but the set of two DIY bags will actually cost you less than just one store-bought sun-charged bag and will make for a cute story too!

    Thanks :)

    I entered, my submission said “I have it, it must be here somewhere” with the translation to find an excuse to visit the home improvement store

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway

    Love the cork mat! We’ve been having fun collecting/saving wine corks for awhile- totally doing this project with them!

    You do know that shipping pallets are treated with a number of “wood preservatives”. Prior to 2003, these included arsenic and chromium (for US made pallets).

    Who knows what kinds of preservatives are in there now and where the pallet was originally made?

    Your nice looking distressed coffee table could be of-gassing some very unhealthy chemicals into your home.
