We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.
Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00
Storage in a small, century home is scarce. So, we are making the most of our space by adding storage drawers in the steps. The project didn't really cost us anything except the cost of
the carpet on top of the steps. We dismantled an old changing table/dresser and repurposed the drawers and drawer glides. We attached the drawer glides to the risers and then added the steps on top. You can check out the entire tutorial and more home improvements at:
