love this idea, except for the coffee table part and only because the bookcases are too tall. It's a coffee table, an old bookcase, and some paint. Use a plain bookcase and add crown molding to the top and trim down the front.
Favorite Part of this is to make a stepping stone path. HOW: cup salt, cup flour, cup (give or take) water. Knead until dough forms. Make impression. Bake at 200 for 3 hours. Do every summer and make a stepping stone path :) What a cute idea!
DIY Cinder Block 'sofa': TI love how this cinderblock sofa almost takes on a kid-like quality. It's like it's built out of legos! I'd probably toss a cushion across the bench seat, but I love the plants organically growing out of the back.
Make your own DIY overhead projector for tracing wall murals. Make a makeshift projector using a box, a lamp and some tape. Project the transparency onto the wall. Use a light bulb without the "frosting" on the inside for a clearer picture.
