At the bookstore yesterday, we picked up a special issue of the Good Things mini magazine. Entitled Good Things for the Home, it is a 120 page collection of 67 simple projects.
A good example of what you'll find inside is pictured here. Idea #13, Table Trio, is featured on pages 30 & 31. Made from trays securely velcroed to the top of inexpensive wooden stools and then spray painted, they are a budget project that yields an nice-looking result.
It is divided into sections: embellish it, multiply it, organize it, rethink it, liven it up and make it cozy.
Some other projects we liked:
