We'll admit that the main reason that we began our subscription to ReadyMade magazine was for the projects. We grew quite fond of the overall appeal of the magazine--the feature articles, the MacGyver challenge each month, and HDYGTFAJ kept us reading. But we'll admit that the DIY tricks, build-its and crafts are still our favorite. Here are our top three projects of late...

Seen above, this Tennis Trellis is a fantastic repurposing of old wooden rackets. We love the geometric shape and patterns created when stacked up so high. This would make a gorgeous and innovative trellis for vines in a garden, or a very cool screen to use to divide up large spaces.

The Fauxbius Table is an amazingly simple way to create a very high-end looking piece of furniture. This simple and relatively inexpensive project is a great way to add a very modern touch to a room.

We love the look of this Felt Rug and we love the idea that it costs leaps and bounds less than a rug at a retailer. Inexpensive and stylish floor coverings have always been a bit tricky to find.
