(Don't tell Chris, but I've determined this week to be "succulent" week here on Curbly.) Yesterday I highlighted a very cool DIY watercolor cactus wall art project. Today we're checking out Rebecca's clever re-use of a gumball machine, which she turned into a succulent planter. She found the gumball machine
It's the time of year when you load up in the car and head out for a fun family vacation. Here are 10 activities your kids can do in the car that don't involve screen time.

Bar carts are super trendy right now, but they can also be super expensive. If you're looking for a cheap and minimal option, this easy DIY is definitely for you. And who doesn't like taking pre-existing pieces and transforming them into something new? Simply turn an outdated and bland TV tray into a minimalistic bar cart!
