Now is the perfect time to learn How to Build a Pallet Daybed!
The highlight of My New Backyard patio redecorating scheme has most definitely been this pallet daybed. I really wanted a place to sleep outside with my daughter, and a comfy couch to relax on with friends. I didn’t have the funds to invest in a fancy piece of outdoor furniture, and I knew that with the weather as it is in Los Angeles, I could leave this outside pretty much all summer. I also knew that I would, at some point, need to move it under the awning to keep it dry, so I put it on wheels. And finally, I knew I would need arms, because I’m just not comfy on a couch without arms. So here is the DIY Pallet Daybed I came up with.
I built this myself, with no help at all, in just a few days. I’m a crafty person and comfortable with tools, but I’m not an advanced woodworker by any stretch of the imagination, and this project was simple enough for me, so I know you can do it if you want to. Let me show you how to make your own DIY Pallet Daybed after the jump. (more…)

It has been amazing to see veteran sewists and beginners alike, come together (virtually) to sew face masks for their communities. There are so many great tutorials out there right now but since people are using what they have on hand, I thought it might be useful to see the easy way that I made some masks with bias tape.

This is a Valentine’s Day recipe, but you can go ahead and make it in a circle shape and eat it any time of year. The parmesan crust is so buttery and fluffy, and the tomatoes burst with flavor on a bed of caramelized onions and cheese. Folding into a cute heart shape was a fun way to make it a Valentine’s Day recipe, and just made me happy.
