A great idea. Plywood as a laundry room countertop. Lowes will cut to size, just rub on some danish oil. (Add a cheap rubber floor mat between the wood and metal to dampen the sound.) I like the counter top space, with a shelf above.
These cone-shaped miniature Christmas tree ornaments will look stunning on a table setting or mantlepiece. They're made out of string and homemade starch, and they're super easy to make! Thinking I could just use wire.
