7 DIYs + Ideas for the Home

A little round-up action of some awesome DIYs and ideas for the home I've found this week.  Ever since I saw the serape upholstered chairs at The Line in LA, I've been wanting to do something similar; and now we see a fine example at A Beautiful Mess (below).  Other good stuff? A cool magazine holder and sharpie painted terracotta planter are next on my list! What are you making these days? Here's some inspiration:

For the magazine rack idea, check out "stirrup leathers," they are the long strap of leather that riders have on their saddle to hang the stirrups. They come with a buckle and punched holes, and would be perfect for this. Depending on the quality of the leather and the brand, they can be quite cheap or very expensive. I have two old ones that are going to be repurposed around a round mirror ;-)
