If you fancy getting your hands into some DIY projects this spring, the best way to start is take note from the DIY masters at the shuttered magazine ReadyMade (rest in peace). An idea straight from Andrew Wagner, the former editor-in-chief of the crafty DIY magazine, this clever project takes found egg cartons off the streets of New York‘s Chinatown, piles them up high, and secures them with a stylish ribbon. The result is a surprisingly comfortable chair of cartons nestled nicely together without the need for adhesives. Inspired? Get cracking!
