Day 20 – Feeling Like the Tin Man

My mother’s favorite movie is “The Wizard of Oz” and although it is not my favorite, I can recall most of the movie from memory due to watching it some many time and my mother reciting it to me. If you recall the movie when the Tin Man was discovered he had to be oiled before he could move. Today’s DIY revolves around oil cans. Have you ever considered decorating an oil can and putting it in your house? Today’s projects consist of locating an old oil can, cleaning it, painting it, and adding a few modifications to turn it into a cute little picture holder. See the three examples below and check out my Pinterest board for links.

Day 10 – For the Love of PVC

For some readers you may think that today’s DIY projects are a bit of a stretch, but around my house PVC pipe is always around. Be a farmer and raising livestock also requires you to acquire skills as a plumber, electrician, veterinarian, mechanic, and much more. A jack of all trades you could say. When things break you either have to find a way to fix them on your own or call in professional help.

Okay enough with that back to the crafts. I first found the ideas of using PVC pipes to organize your hair styling gadgets from my sister in laws. They saw the idea on Pinterest and made the large pipes. I have yet to make one but it truly does work. Add a little paint, a ribbon, some rhinestones whatever you like. I also really like the PVC pipe inside of the cabinet as that is an empty space and a great place to store those things.

I later discovered the PVC pipe frame which I think would be adorable once painted a color! pvcframeLast but not least what an affordable and nifty idea for a sprinkler system for your garden or flower beds. I definitely will be looking into this one next spring.pvcsprinkler
