Bar Table Display Case

We had a 2-seater square pub table from our old house that didn’t fit in our new house. I didn’t want it to completely go to waste, so I brainstormed how to make it work. I decided a bar pushed up against the wall in our basement would work perfectly in our “gaming” area with…

Dog Bed

We adopted a dog from the Humane Society a month ago. Her name is Zoey! She is a beagle / german shepherd mix. I am obsessed with her. Before we even got a dog my husband made the rule “no dogs on the bed.” So I knew I had to make her the coolest bed…

Herb Wall Planter

UPDATE! Last year’s growing season was surprisingly a success. I decided this year to make my wall planter into an herb garden. I made painted plywood labels and screwed them into each box. Original Post: I really love how this project turned out, but I have a confession: I have a brown thumb. I’ve never owned a plant…

I saw a headboard repurposed into a bench on Pinterest, so I summoned up the determination/motivation to make one myself. I searched for a…

Corbel Entryway Table

At Shanty-2-Chic, she uses pre-made turned dining table legs. While searching for my own to buy, I found these corbels at Architectural Depot. I decided to go down my…

Pallet Artwork

I ship a LOT of packages because of my online Etsy store. Once a year I place a giant order of shipping supplies (cardboard boxes, packing paper, tape, etc) with Uline. This year the order was so large a UPS semi truck showed up at the end of my driveway, and everything was banded together…

Custom Baby Gate

I have two boys, ages 1 and 3, so gates are a necessity in my house. I think I would have wanted to build this gate even if I didn’t have kids, because the basement stairs are very steep and I get vertigo standing at the top. I felt like some invisible force was going to…
