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

If there is a semi-sturdier structure anywhere near the area (or you could devise one)..I've
used old nylon knee-hi's to hammock my heavy maters. They tie off easy to anything available. They also stretch if they have to giving stems all the slack they need while still lending a 'staking' quality.
While cleaning up the breakfast dishes this morning I realized how much space my dish drainer takes up and how generally unattractive it looks. I have always kept it out at all times
(with the exception of when we entertain & will have many people in the kitchen) but I'm realizing now what an awful eyesore it is any day of the week. To top it off, it is in clear view from my foyer / front door. We are a family of six so there are lots of dishes/pots washed daily but I need a better solution. What are some alternatives to this boring & ugly dish rack?

I hang it on the inside cabinet door under the sink with 2 screw hooks.
