Here is an easy, adorable and creative project your kiddos can do, that will keep them occupied for hours! +MichaelsStores +Gymboree  ‪#CraftinStyle  ‪#‎PassporttoImagination‬ http://bit.ly/thedesconf-countyfair
Having two boys with nearly five years between them makes it tricky to find activities to keep them busy during the summer months. There are only a handful of possibilities that will entertain them both, but crafts are at the top of their list… and naturally, getting them out of the house is at ...

Having such a key component be both good looking and super chic makes me love this project so very much. Go forth and add some heart to your home... As with all of our plans, ...

how about a fab and fast little build for your memorial day weekend? http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/05/free-diy-furniture-plans-how-to-build-indoor-outdoor-plant-stand
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3! The sleek design is perfect to display your potted house plants or garden beauties... and so easy and inexpensive that you could build several in a single afternoon. Play around with paint colors and plant stand heights on this build - you've got the time!

Build (super easy), Plant (anything you wish), Enjoy (so fabulous)... Repeat (because it's affordable) then Showcase (@thedesconf/ #builtTDCtuff )! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/06/free-diy-furniture-plans-how-to-build-raised-cube-planter
Plants are my jam... you might have noticed? Both inside and in the great outdoors, planters are such an important feature. It's easy to see why they are perfect for your indoor beauties, but I adore using planters and pots outside as well to give interest and height to my plantings.

if you are tired of the same media stands from the same old discount retailers, build something bad ass, like this family did! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/06/builders-showcase-copenhagen-media-stand
This is the Copenhagen Media Stand. I didnt like the view showing all the sandwiched layers from the end and the front so I framed the whole thing in Redwood. I also used pine that had pine beetle discoloration. Got lucky and spotted some pre-made panels with pine beetle damage - someone at the ...

a gorgeous build and a fab set of mods to the party portion of this project! woot woot! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/05/builders-showcase-rustic-outdoor-table-built-in-drink-cooler
My wife wanted to be able to have chairs on the ends so I extended the top by 14" over the frame. We also wanted to be able to cover the gutter so we used $10 plastic planter boxes and I cut a 2x6 to drop into the gap. There is a 2" hole towards the center to be able to pull the lids off.
