Lazy Day Hammock Chair - DIY
There is nothing like sitting around on a lazy day doing nothing--in a cozy hammock chair! I love this idea from A Beautiful Mess which shows how to make this thing in one lazy afternoon. Supplies Needed: -1 1/4" x 3' oak dowel (oak is a hard wood and considered safer than poplar for supporting weight. Also, I had mine cut to 3') -3/8" x 16' braided polypropylene (get this by the foot) -2 yards of plain canvas -80mm stainless steel spring snap link (holds up to 220 lbs) -3/16" stainless steel quick link (holds up to 660 lbs) -black fabric paint (my acrylic paint is fabric friendly) -paint brush Tools: -drill and 3/8" drill bit -sewing machine -iron and ironing board -shears -ruler -lighter Step One: Fold your two yards of canvas in half and lay flat with the fold on the left as shown. Measure in about 7" from the top right edge and mark. I cut mine about 12" in, and it was a bit too much, so I'm suggesting 7". Using a yard stick or ruler, draw a line from that top mark to the bottom right corner, and cut through both pieces. Open your canvas. Step Two: Fold your top edge down 1/2" and iron flat. Then fold it in again 1/2" and iron flat. Pin and stitch the bottom of the fold as shown above. Repeat with the long bottom edge. Step Three: Flip your canvas 90 degrees to the left so that the longest edge is on the right. You're going to create pockets for the rope to slide through on each side. Fold each corner in about 1 1/2" and iron flat. Then fold the unhemmed top edge in 1/2" and iron flat. Step Four: Fold again 1 1/2" and iron flat. Step Five: Stitch two lines along the bottom folded edge as shown. Reinforce your beginning and ending with back stitches. Repeat with other side. Step Six: Make a mark 2" and 4" in from both ends of your dowel, and drill through. Sand your rough edges and stain if you'd like. I chose to leave mine natural. Step Seven: Place your canvas on a large sheet of cardboard, and paint your design on one side. Let it dry, and then paint a design on the other side (optional). If you're using printed fabric, be sure it's upholstery weight or outdoor fabric to ensure its strength. Step Eight: Tie a knot at one end of your 16' rope so that there is about 3" of a tail. Melt the end so it won't fray. Thread it down through the outer hole of your oak dowel and up from the widest corner of one side of your canvas seat to the narrow corner of the top. Then tie a knot about 3' from your first knot, and thread it up into the oak dowel. Continue to thread it down into the hole 4" from the other edge, and measure 3' from the loose end, and tie a loose knot. Thread it down through the other canvas pocket and back up through the last hole before tying a knot with a 3" tail. If your two sides aren't even, adjust your knots before pulling them tight. Step Nine: Find the center of the rope above your dowel, and tie a knot with about 8"-10" of room above it. Attach your spring link, and then your quick link, and finally hang it on a hook screwed safely into a ceiling beam or large tree branch. Be sure to adjust all of your knots to make sure the seat sits evenly. Test it out by hanging on it before sitting in it to make sure everything is secure.

Overmount These sinks are installed from the top. The edges of the sink rest over the benchtop surface. Their style combines the sink and the drainer. You can install them easily on your own as well.

Apron Front Their design makes them protrude out from the benchtop. The apron front sinks are easier to wash and clean. As there is not cabinet or benchtop between you and the sink, so it becomes very easy to clean the dishes in these sinks. After installation, their level is slightly lower than the benchtop level. The bench over hangs and it makes wiping water or food into the sink rather easy. Sink Size You should go with a size that goes perfectly well with space. If the sink bowl is deeper, you will have more room for soaking, washing and rinsing the dishes. On the other hand, a shallow sink means less bending over and less strain on the back. The size of the sink should be such that it should not take too much of space on the bench and overlooks oversized. In The End You can go different metals as well as kitchen copper sinks, stainless steel sinks but the overall look f the sinks should be such that it goes with the overall design of the kitchen.
