I’m trying to get macramé, but it’s tougher than I thought. Plus, I only have a little time each week to work on the basics, so it will be a long time before I can finally make some items for the website.

Meanwhile, I have pinned a lot of DIY projects this week. I am really impressed with the ingenuity many bloggers have.

So, without further ado, here are my five favorites for the week:

Five Favorites

I tried to DIY a rug, but I really struggled. Next time, I’ll try making this rug featured on Paper & Stitch:

Sarah Hearts features a hook peg rack that’s really cute. It’s perfect for a kid’s room, in an entryway or a mudroom:

Finally, I would love to work at a standing desk. I’m not a carpenter, but this DIY isn’t very complicated if you know how to use a saw:
