Gardening and DIY plans

yes, I know that this is mainly a wedding blog, but I just couldn't help myself.  Yesterday I got my Martha Stewart Living magazine in the mail and a friend posted about spring and buying a plant.  I guess you could say I caught a bit of the Spring fever! 

Anyway, I would like to share with you some ideas I have for spring.  One of which I might start with this weekend! 
A Beautifully unique headboard.  perfect for a young couple!  Wouldn't this make for a great DIY project?  It's hard to stumble upon weathered wood like this on the New York City sidewalks but I bet my family back in Minnesota would find it easily!  I'm going to ask my parents to keep their eyes open for me so I can make this with the help from my dad when I'm home. 

You may remember this photo from a post I did almost a year ago.  and I'm still wanting to find an old dresser or desk and convert it into a little garden in our apartment.  Plus, we have a corner of our living room that is the starting point for every cord you could imagine.  so with something like this I could attach a cord organizer or something and hide all that nasty clutter!

And of course new plants and herbs to grow for spring!  I'm wondering, do you think I could grow any vegetables in an apartment setting?  I would love to try.  Send your tips my way!
