Mosaic Toilet Tank Pot

I love the idea of this re-purposing! Especially since I have an old toilet in my garbage pile waiting for the junker to come. So I'll post my results here when I get to it.

Easy Arcade Cabinet

I definitely want to do this! The cabinet is probably the hardest part since you simply put an old PC into the cabinet and hook it up to a TV or Monitor. The popularity of the multiple arcade emulator (MAME) let's you play all those game systems and arcade classics you grew up with!

Multi-Level Cat Tree

Wonderful! Since I have many felines roaming around my house, this is pretty much a necessity. Use these plans as a base and add or modify as needed. Does not look difficult at all and offers you the ability to change as you need it.

A Simple Solar Charging Station

This is an awesome and simple DIY Solar Charging Station that anyone can build! It's really great to have free power available to you to charge your devices. Could probably be modified to keep indoors or maybe a portable version so you can bring it to the beach or out in the wilderness with you.
