Easy tutorial for topsy turvy planter and bird bath.

I shared yesterday that I was working on a diy garden project that was for the birds! Our Lowes Creative Ideas Network challenge this month was to create a diy bird feeder or birdbath. After Matt’s failed attempt at creating a bird feeder, I just went ahead and purchased a cute feeder from Lowes. However, I had this fun idea to create a planter and bird bath in one and today I’ll show you how to make your own!

Kitchen Island DIY Projects - The Cottage Market

Looking for a little makeover…a little something different to give the kitchen a new feel not to mention more space to work on and gather around?  Well then I think that this newest collection of Kitchen Island DIY Projects is for you.  The imaginative islands will inspire you and the DIY’s will guide you to your final Kitchen Island destiny!  While collecting these DIY Projects my mind wondered remembering my parents always saving up to have things done in the home.  Mom putting money in envelopes for new cabinets or a new counter.  It got me thinking on how cool things are now that so many people don’t have to wait as long for something that they need in the house thanks to the DIY generation.  There are fabulous products that help us out…but the community of DIYER’s sharing and showing us the HOW TO’s had changed everything.  So an extra BIG thank you to all of you …you are all incredible and we love you!

Now, gather up your friends and it’s time to have yourselves an emoji egg party. For real. You don’t have another option. It’s necessary.

DIY outdoor cat enclosure to keep you city cats happy and safe

I’m not only cuckoo for design but also for animals.
My 4 kitties mean the world to me and if I could afford more pets, I would.
