Although we manage to reuse some of them as we can filled them with sweted fruit or other traditional types of food that we can prepare for winter they still remain a lot of them unused.

Nice DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

I remember those wonderful summer holidays that I have spent at the country side at my grandparents. The fresh air, the nature, all the animals and birds, the natural and tasty food were things that composed this entire wonderful rustic universe. All the day long I was outside and trying to help my grandparents at different things like: feeding the animals, bringing them water too, cleaning the yard or helping them preparing the breakfast, lunch or dinner.

One of the inconvenient was that dust was everywhere and all the time my hands were not so clean. Perhaps a soap dispenser was a real need since my grandparents were using just a simple soap which needed to be put in a special place.The next DIY project reminded me of this problem and its nice result which can be perfect for such a situation.

Practical DIY Mason Storage by Liz Marie

It is said that a woman spends more time in a bathroom than a man. This is true if you take into consideration that a woman is very preoccupied with her exterior aspect and pays attention to every detail of it. You may also think of the fact that a woman wears more accessories than a man; she pays attention to the way her hair is arranged and takes care of her make up too. Men seem to be less concerned about all these items and have only a few accessories that need to take care of.

The idea is that bathroom still remains a place where women take care of their look and here they should to find everything they need for this purpose. So a woman’s bathroom needs to be very organized and everything should have a precise storage place.


Awesome Yellow Drip Planter

Decorative plants allways have been our connection with the wild nature.They have their special place in our hearts and also our homes.Preserving them green and alive was allways tricky.Providing the right temperature , watering them some by spraying it on the leaves or pouring it at the roots and what do you do when you have a variety of plants with a variety of need.

Oh, and not to mention the ceramic planters.They don’t  fit anywhere.This is a perfect  example  of adapting an object to match your interior setting. A brown  ordinary planter was transformed in an actually design element.The original idea was to be painted in yellow but half way through.The drips were a “happy accident”as the author of this object said.He went out to take some fresh air  after sniffing up some chemicals from the paint and this is what he found when stepping in.A great project I would say and  a great color also matching a yellow Eames rocker chair.
