Simple Rustic Headboard Bench Tutorial

We have 9 garden beds in our yard. Our goal was to put a structure piece in each garden. I thought it would be fun to try our hand at a headboard bench I had seen on Pinterest. It’s a simple, rustic bench. It literally took 60 min. to cut, build and paint and it was under $10.00, my favorite kind of project.

DIY Industrial Bathroom Fixtures

While redoing my boys bathroom I got the urge do add an industrial touch. I had seen on Pinterest some industrial shelving so decided to search for some bathroom fixtures. Here is my take on them. The first thing I did was research the prices for this industrial piping. The piping was not bad. I was able to buy a 10 foot piece for 10.00 and have it cut and threaded for me at Home Depot. The flanges were about 5.00 a piece so that can add up pretty fast. I needed 6 for my towel bar, my curtain rod and my shelf. The elbows were priced fairly reasonably.
For the towel bar you will need:
1/2" black pipe cut to the size you want it.

diy mailbox planters, gardening, repurposing upcycling

DIY Mailbox Planters

I found some old mailboxes at Goodwill for 1.00. I decided I'd like to paint them in bright colors to attach to my house and use as planters. There was no need to drill holes as there was space for the water to drain out on own. I did add a layer of gravel to the bottom of each to help with drainage. I added some black dirt and then planted them with shade loving plants. For more pictures you can visit my blog.
