DIY Saturday



Haven’t you seen old window screens in the trash? I have! Look at the clever way of repurposing them! A light, airy laundry hamper. These days you would be more apt to find metal framed screens, but those could work too, with wood reinforcement.  It would be a very primitive/industrial look!

Sometimes finding that perfect piece of furniture can be next to impossible! The right height, length, width, color, the list goes on and on. Why not build your own with supplies from the Smith County Habitat Restore Home Improvement Center?  You would be making a great piece of furniture, while supporting a wonderful non-profit by purchasing your materials at the ReStore!

What a great use of a mailbox! Use an old one to store umbrellas, brooms, wrapping paper, anything that needs to stand up for storage!
