So I was lying on the hard wooden balcony floor, watching this class and found myself thinking "I need a rug." Inner-me quickly responded "Buy a rug." "No, you already have enough rugs" "But they're expensive fancy indoor rugs!" "... okay, make a rug then."
As you can see, one of my pain points is my balcony. It could be an oasis if I had a better hand at gardening and interior design so I'll start with said rug. It's a long-term project so all I can present right now is this magical photoshopped picture.
I really liked the idea of the so-called t-shirt rug. You use old fabrics to built your own, here's a good how-to: http://nur-noch.com/t-shirt-rug/?lang=en
I asked my friends for textile donations - anything cotton can be used here, t-shirts, bedsheets, curtains ... and everyone has some that they don't need anymore. And since cotton can be dyed, you'll have a unique but fitting new piece made from recycled clothes and fabrics.
I'll keep you updated when it's finished :D Next will be a shelf for the plants.
