Flickr Find: Handmade Play Tent

What a fantastic idea for occupying those deep corners that are created near beds and cribs. What's even better, Kim fashioned this cozy, colorful little nook for her daughter Haley almost entirely from items she found around the house.

Materials used: An old bathroom cabinet for storing little books and treasures, a reclaimed tablecloth, various pillows and sheets, and leftover yardage from a previous project.

Says Kim:

If you have 20 dollars, a little bit of patience and creativity, some old bed linens and a hack saw, I totally suggest making a homemade fort for your prince or princess! If you can't sew curtains or don't have a sewing machine available to you, hemming tape will do the trick!

We love this can-do approach to DIY projects. If you have your own project to share with the Ohdeedoh community, just tag your Flickr photos with "Ohdeedoh" and one of our editors will be sure to find it.
