Today's installment of readers' DIY projects: a cool unattached deck from Champaign resident Melinda Miller, who sent me tons of photos of her and her husband's project.
I am having such a blast this week featuring readers' DIY projects, and today's came from Champaign resident Melissa Mitchell.

Today, I have two lovely DIY projects from readers – a headboard made by Mahomet resident Dawn Coyne, and a quilt by Kathy Wallig. (You might remember Kathy as the one who made this cool parrothead-style quilt.)
This week, I'm hoping to feature your DIY projects. I've gotten a few emails that I'll separate into a few different posts.
If you have a DIY project, be it furniture or a deck or even an excellent recipe, email me a couple of paragraphs and a photo. I'd love to feature it.
Two readers recently sent me a short write-up, complete with photos, about things they've made themselves.

Mid-July is here, and I'm starting the Guilt-Free discussion today about "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.
