DIY projects/ before and after

I can’t wait for the day when we have a house with yard so we can build a little retreat like the one below. Somehow after doing our taxes this week I think this might be our house! Maybe we could build four of them in a row – one for the bedroom, one for the living area, one for the kitchen and one for the bathroom.

Full building instructions here.

Why o why did I not think of this! It is so simple yet so brilliant all at the same time. I friggin hate all the equipment and wires we have in our apartment. Even when things are wireless they come with just as many wires as the non wireless equipment! So I love this simple idea to hide the router.

Thanks for sharing Ana Marie and tell Joe he is a genius!

From memory I am not a good knitter but I just love the idea of knitting my own Hudson Bay blanket. Maybe I might email this tutorial to my mum and suggest it would be the perfect way to spend time on her long haul flight at the end of this month. :) Do they allow you to travel with knitting needles in your onboard luggage???

Anyway back to the tutorial. Click here for the full details.

The pink palace, aka our apartment, only has a built-in robe in the second bedroom which is fine for now but if a visitor was to stay I think the rolling rack below would come in handy. Also I like the idea of using the rolling rack to display your good outfits and favourite shoes.

TIP: insert a broom stick or dowel through the top pipe so you can hang heavy items without bending the pipe.

Thanks for Heather for this DIY project!
