I've been doing a lot of research for my "Editor's DIY" story for the magazine, and have come across some very talented and handy people I thought I should share with you. Here are a few projects that stood out for me.

Design*Sponge is always a great place to go for DIY projects. These copper coil vases strike the perfect balance between pretty and industrial.

I really love this ottoman DIY because you're really using all your own resources. Instead of adding pieces to your house, you take something that no longer works in the space and create something that does, recycling as much material as possible.

For small spaces, Apartment Therapy has some very ingenious ideas. One of their current stories is "10 Small Space Storage Solutions for the Bathroom". This idea is my favourite of the ten, since it's fun yet tidy.

Doilies are also popping up everywhere. People are straying away from their traditional use and decorating pillows or light fixtures.

In my search, I also found these photos of a gorgeous old window with a doily window curtain. I love the vintage look of it.

For more projects, see our DIY Ideas weekly blog.
