1. Don’t over sink it
Busy counter tops are a thing of the past! We think this is so clever, and would make a very useful addition. We even think it could be made yourself as a simple DIY project! Maybe there’ll be a tutorial in the future… you’ll have to stay tuned!
2. Sneaky iron storage
Sick of the sight of your ironing board? Remind you of chores and boredom? Why not tuck it away in a slide out drawer? Who knows, maybe the sliding novelty will make ironing more bearabble!
3. Lego to legone
We all know that the most painful thing in the world HANDS DOWN is stepping on lego. In fact, we’ve even heard it kills 3 people a year. [statistics may be made up]
To save yourself and your loved ones, here’s a neat solution. This play mat provides a place for your child to build as many lego cities he likes, while allowing you to sweep them away in the blink of an eye… c’est la vie. We think you could totally make one too! Just layer two circles onto each other, and sew around the perimeter an inch from the edge, and then two inches in from this. Leave a gap in your cirlces, and pull some rope through this, to make a pully. And ta-da!
