My gutter salad bar. I installed a 5” x 10’ gutter on the side of my deck that is off my kitchen. It faces due south and gets full sun. Then I planted spinach and lettuce in it. The holes I drilled into bottom drip extra water into my herb garden below so no water is wasted.

Great plan

Awesome idea….though I want to do this for the herb garden!

This Pallet Daybed is Ideal for Your Balcony or Patio

Image via:  lovely greens  ,  useful diy  
If you need an idea of a daybed for your patio or balcony then this one is for you. To make this bed you have to join together four frames of pallets with nails. Then you have to cover the stacked pallet frames with wooden planks using screws. If you want to save a few bucks on the planks simply cover the pallets from front, top and sides leaving the back uncovered as it won’t be visible. This daybed shown in the photo is left with some space too after placing the mattress and the space is used as a coffee table. You can also paint the daybed with fence paint or stain it and voila!

Recycle Plastic Bottles into Ottomans for Some Extra Seating Space

Image Source:  liveinternet  ,  dreamerattraction 
We all require some extra seating in our house and for that ottomans are ideal. You can make your own ottomans too by recycling plastic bottles. To start with first you have to join plastic bottles with the help of scotch tape in a circular shape. After that cut two cardboard discs equal to the diameter of the bottle circle and put them below and on top of the bottles. Secure them at their place with plastic sheet. Then cover all the sides of this cylinder with foam sheets. Sew an inner cover for the ottoman from any fabric. Sew a top cover too and voila!

You can try a square shape too like this one. Enjoy crafting!


wow awesome idea!
