DIY-Furniture

DIY projects are a lot like cooking your meals at home—you’re saving money, gaining a bit of satisfaction and often cursing and throwing things by the end of the night. We all know our way around a table saw, but when it comes to DIY projects, far too often it’s the creative spark that leaves us with a coffee table reminiscent of something in the discount bin at Ikea. For some projects that you’d be proud to put on display, pick up a copy of DIY Furniture. Featuring more than 30 crafts from the world’s best design-minds, this book/manual will have you creating usable works of art in no time. Just make a quick trip to Ace or Home Depot and follow the simple plans to have a home that collectively costs less than the one distress leather chair you want from Restoration Hardware.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
