7 Cool Father’s Day DIY’s

I scoured the Internet looking for some ideas that would be fun and useful. Here they are:

Here’s to Felix from “Orphan Black”: Terrific Drink Trolleys

Here’s to Felix from “Orphan Black”: Terrific Drink Trolleys

Are you watching the amazing, jaw-dropping, ever-twisting show “Orphan Black”? If you live somewhere where it’s being broadcasted, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. The story and performances are terrific. I was hooked within the first three minutes of the first episode and have never looked back. One of the characters is named Felix, and he’s often inappropriate, like when he asked pre-teen characters on the show, “Does your Daddy have a drinks trolley?”. I’ve been so inspired by the show, that I thought it’d be a good idea to have a look at a few drinks trolleys you can incorporate into your home.
