DIY

Yesterday after work I went to the Rebuilding Center to check out their salvage materials. I had seen this great idea on Treasure Makers on HGTV. They had taken a drawer and made it into a footstool. They basically gave the drawer a padded lid and added legs to it. Then it could be used to store magazines, etc. I found three different sized drawers, all for $3. I want to make a coffee table with the biggest one and put it on casters.

Funny, I just made a similar footstool last weekend, although I made mine up as I went. I used a sturdy basket, put casters on the bottom, made a lid with thick foam, covered with a piece of felted sweater. I can put my feet up and put my knitting in it too so it worked great. Good luck with your new house, you'll be too busy to knit !!
