Vanessa Brunner added this to 8 Fantasy Dining Room Designs
Designer: LabExperiment and Aldea HomeThis playhouse diner was one of the more playful designs at this year's event. A thick cardboard exterior was designed in a style similar to childhood playhouses made of cardboard boxes. Doodles adorn the sides, while the black and white palette leaves a little room for imagination.
Becky Harris added this to For the Kids: Secret Forts Indoors
Grownups like secret forts too, which is what makes this design by LabExperiment and Aldea Home for Dining by Design so much fun. It also shows us how much we can create with cardboard. Over Thanksgiving and I watched a friend make a fort for his 3-year-old son from the box their new TV console came in. He did it with an Exacto knife in about 10 minutes. Right after he cut out a doorway, the aesthetically astute toddler was already inside, ordering up a window and a skylight.What was your secret fort like? Please tell us about it below and post a picture if you have one!More: Fantasy Kids' Rooms14 Picture Perfect PlayhousesGuest Picks: Perfect for the Playroom

5. Gift extra-large boxes to a local preschool. Instead of shoving all of those giant cardboard packaging boxes into the garage or recycling bin, why not bring some to a local teacher instead? Preschools are usually happy to accept big cardboard boxes along with other recycled packaging materials to reuse in creative classroom projects.
