Over at Domestic Imperfection, Ashley has been admiring gold side tables for some time now. Wanting a pair for her guest room, she started to shop around, but was discouraged to find that most of them were either well out of her budget range.....or out of stock! Instead, Ashley decided to experiment with things she had around the house to see if she could DIY something similar. "And what I had was tomato cages, wire, spray paint, and lots of scrap wood," she notes.

At Vintage Charm Restored, Lori really needed a way to corral her family's belongings right where they go in and out: the entryway. The locker systems she spotted in catalogs were just too pricey, so Lori came up with a way to custom design a system, using completely repurposed supplies.
When Katie of View From the Fridge spotted a pretty, gold desk caddy at Anthropologie, she was pretty sure she could DIY something very similar.

When Jessie at Imperfectly Polished spotted an ipod dock made from a rustic log in one of her favorite shelter mags, she was smitten.....and inspired.
