Water is one of the essential elements that we humans can’t do without. Water brings a sense of calm and quiet to your living area. Many people prefer keeping aquariums while some keep water fountains. I love to play with things and make my own versions and this is one that I’m not missing out on!! A DIY fountain of my own is just what I’ve created for my home.
