Using an IKEA DIGNITET curtain wire is a quick and easy way to store art supplies so they are close at hand and visible at all times. The IKEA Home Tour Squad used it in their craft room makeover to store watercolor paints!
"Backyard Ker-Plunk". I made this DIY Ker-Plunk game by upcycling an old end table I found on craigslist. We wrapped some chicken wire around the top, stapled it in place to secure, and voila! Homemade Ker-plunk! We got the wooden dowels at Home Depot and I found the ball pit balls on craigslist. But of course, you can get them at Walmart or Toys R Us. It's a ton of fun!
