It is a sensation we associate with luxury resorts and remote beaches – stepping out of the water and onto smooth pebbles. It is also remarkably easy to recreate this experience at home.
Susan Wasinger from Natural Home (via LifeHacker) spells out the simple steps and materials, but essentially: (1) make the frame, (2) add a wire mesh screen, (3) add the stones. And voila, a free foot massage every day. The tools are elementary as well: a basic saw, pliers, screws and glue will do.
Details can be found here, but think of this as a fun project worth adapting – not something to strictly follow the rules on, particularly when it comes to the constituent materials: “The stones can be collected in your beach-combing adventures or purchased by the bag at garden centers and stone yards for a couple bucks a pound.”
