If you and your partner are both DIY newbies and want to start with something that requires practically no hammering, sewing, or even gluing, check out this eggceptionally easy seat made of egg cartons. Conceived by former ReadyMade editor-in-chief Andrew Wagner, this clever project turns found egg cartons into a chair simply by piling them up high and securing them with a few straps. You and your better half can probably crank one of these babies out in just half an hour or so, so why not make one for each of you to sit on and celebrate afterwards during a romantic meal the same night?
This DIY project is a great compromise if your honey happens to be a hoarder. Julie Brzezinski came up with the idea to turn old TVs into useful storage shelves – a way to finally get those old electronics out of the garage and turn them into something that isn’t just a waste of space. Her shelves are easy to make and are the perfect solution if you’re a couple that constantly argues over what stays and what needs to be thrown away.
