5 Projects to Try This Weekend

I don't know about you, but summer seems to be the time when I try to get things done. Maybe it’s the longer days that inspire me to pack every minute with productivity, but summer always feels like project time. And given that I don’t really have more time in the summer than I do in any other season, I’m especially fond of quick and easy projects. (You know…the kind that give you a great sense of accomplishment, even if they only took an hour or two!) Real Living magazine gets this, and to prove it, they’ve compiled a list of 15 projects that can be done in a weekend. 5 favorites: 1. Typographic night light Trip the light type-tastic with an artist’s canvas and spotlight. Sure to set your word-loving heart aglow. 2. Woolly bench A yarnbomb-inspired seating solution, this bench turns bare wood into a woolen wonder. 3. Cool coatrack Create a PVC picker-upper with a can of spray paint, some MDF and a few casters. Now there’s an idea to hang your hat on! 4. Studded side table Add a touch of rocker edge to any old side table with some studs and a glue gun. Metal mosaic or musing message - it’s up to you. 5. Fabric lanterns Cheap and cheerful, these paper lanterns would add pop to any place. (Imagine them in Merimekko…!) For more project ideas and information, visit Real Living | Save money, make it!
