DIY Home Soda Fountain

Pinned Image

I'm the kind of girl that loves a sweet treat like soda. While being pregnant, it seemed there was nothing better than a cold glass of root beer! I've seen at my local health food grocery store the Soda Stream gizmos, but I wasn't thrilled with the $150 price nor the idea that I'd have to figure out where to store it. Okay, I could find storage for it, but I didn't want to have to buy all of their refills. Lo and behold, on my hunt this morning for info on sewing that I stumbled across this brilliant post at Blue Dirt and The Etsy Blog. The posts are totally mind blowing! 

And I believe now, I really do need a larger kitchen! The amazing thing is that once you set it up, you will be able to pour a cold glass of soda, made as healthy and natural as you want, for an entire year and it should cost only about $20-30. There is a start-up investment on the CO2 tank, values, and tubes, but if you love will save tons of money and help the earth! Here are some wonderful ideas on drink recipes. I also really love this simple DIY soda holder, too!

Also, I haven't forgotten about your request to do an interview -- would you like to pose some questions?
