Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

If we’ve learned anything about home decorating over the years it’s that every place needs at least one quality bench. You can use it to put your shoes on when you’re heading out in the morning, and also use it to drop your bag on when you get home. It will work as extra seating or a coat rack during a party. You can display your shoes underneath it. With a single 2×12, some 3/4″ gas pipe fittings and Ben Uyeda‘s tutorial on HomeMade Modern you’ll have a bench that looks so good your friends will probably try to steal it. Oh yeah, and the entire project can be completed in around 15 minutes (not including the trip to Home Depot) for under $150.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
