This beautiful — and super sturdy — sandbox is a great addition to any backyard or cottage. The designer of this “cadillac of sandboxes,” the amazing Carla of Small + Friendly, has shared the instructions on her blog so any handy DIY mom or dad can build the same awesome sandbox for their own back yard.
With a hinged, retractable lid-turned-deck, as well as plenty of space for a few kids to build and dig, this sandbox easily buys you more time to sip a beverage or read a magazine while the kids play.

In a serious effort to de-clutter our house I have been running into, what seem to be at first sight, pieces of junk. It has become a bit of a hobby to upcycle these pieces into meaningful, unique items that get a second chance at life in my house. Today I am sharing the first of these “junk-to-funk” creations.
A few weeks ago, I ventured into the spider-infested crawl space under my front porch (a place I have not dare to go yet since we bought the house 3 years ago). The very dusty treasure I found was a box filled with wooden shims. Imagination sparked, determination fierce, I set to work and created a small, custom side table I had been looking for but not found for our new beach cottage.
