If you are looking for some fun projects to do with your children, or help with a specific job you might have already started, pay a visit to Built by Kids. Built by Kids is a wonderful resource for everything DIY as it relates to children. You can browse weekend projects, sort by skill level, or select something for a certain age range. It even gives suggestions for things you can build with your child, or that they can do by them self. I know I am already planning our next weekend project in the very near future. For ideas and inspiration visit the Built by Kids website.
Summer is in full swing, and so should you be! There is nothing better than an old fashion tree swing, and these are the real thing. Made from reclaimed elm and natural fiber rope, it is available for around the $46.00 mark. Although you could also get your hands dirty and make one yourself for less if you have the tools. Available both from Oeuf, and directly from The Original Tree Swing in either the original or bench version.
Fun custom made triple bunk bed for Hanne Larsen by Ghislane Viñas. Made from laminated plywood, it is more durable than paint, easier to clean, and has crisp clean edges.

Love this custom design for a Girl’s Bedroom. A huge DIY project for Heidi (of knaehojkarse.blogspot.com ) and her husband, it is their solution for getting the most out of a small space. I really like this concept, although with my top-heavy girls the steps would make me a little nervous. Their blog says it is not quite finished, but it is looking great so far!
