Make Your Own Ipod Dock

I really want Conner to make an iVictrola for us. I figure he can handle the wooden bits and I'll conquer the electronic bits. Here's a tutorial for how to make your own ipod dock by Chris at ManMade.

Bedroom Color

I love this wall color. Might look really good in the bedroom, semi-dark and inviting. I was thinking about making a duvet cover while we're in Colorado and I might just keep this color in mind when I sew it up.

Luggage Chest DIY

We are all in upstate NY sorting out Dan's estate and well, it's rainy, not much is going on, and I'm design geeking out at the Alfred University library while the guy next to me is gaming geeking out. So, while plundering through Design Sponge again I found another DIY that I thought was pretty cool. I might just do this with a silver chest I've been hauling around for a while.

DIY Table

I love this splash o' colour! Maybe I'll give this a go when we move into our "Imperial Mansion" trailer in Arboles, CO for the summer. It'll be a tight space (although much bigger than our "bedroom on wheels" that we've been living in for the last year) and a skinny table like this might be perfect. Via Design Sponge.
