  1. All-Natural Mists

    Hide

    A refreshing spritz of fragrant water is a great way to keep cool in summer. To create sprays, simply fill mist bottles with water and a few strips of julienned cucumber or sprigs of lavender and mint. Label bottles (labels from chroniclebooks.com), and set them on a tray at your next backyard barbecue. 

    Bonus: Cucumber is known for its hydrating properties, and lavender and mint are reputed insect repellents.

    The space above these built-in drawers includes a magnetic message board, made by wrapping linen around a sheet of galvanized metal and then framing it. A nearby tray serves as a catchall for watches, keys, and other everyday items.

  3. Double Stacked

    Hide

    Four divided trays, painted orange, become a layered jewelry organizer. Two trays lie flat along the drawer bottom. The remaining two, joined with wood glue, form the top shelf; it is elevated by strips of 1-inch square molding affixed to the inner sides of the drawer.

    Windowed boxes (on the left) covered in tweed make it possible to find a specific sweater in an instant. Magnetic catch-and-pull tabs ensure that the lids close tightly.

  6. First Aid for Gardeners

    Hide

    The garden is just a slightly tamed wilderness with hazards all its own: It harbors insects that bite, thorns that scratch, and other potential nuisances that may require simple first aid. This basic kit includes alcohol for cleaning wounds, first-aid ointment, cotton balls, bandages, tweezers for thorns and splinters, insect repellent with sunscreen, and, finally, hand salve to soothe and soften your dry skin at the end of the day.
