This year, I have been making a lot of my own Christmas decorations. I wanted to have a good mix of neutral farmhouse decorations to go with my champaign gold theme. In particular, I wanted to find some wooden stars in a neutral finish. Well naturally, I am not likely to purchase something that I can make with things from my scrap wood bin. As a result, I am able to share with you how to make farmhouse style wooden stars!
I have mentioned a few times, over the past month, that I have been working on my office/studio. I almost have everything exactly the way that I want it, except for the fact that I could use a bit more organization. I have so many magazines and binders that I need to keep, but as you know, magazines can cause a very cluttered looking design. Well, there was nothing for me to do but to get busy assembling some holders, but it makes for a good post! So, let me show you how to make magazine holders in a simple and easy fashion!
Hello again, all of you lovely DIYers! I have my friend, Dale, back with me, today. He just finished making this beautiful cutting board for his daughter, and we thought we would share this project with you. Author: Rachel Lynn, Contributor: Dale Stallings
It has taken me a while, but I finally got around to building some honeycomb shelves. As part of my office makeover, I thought that a collage of honeycomb shelves would look nice and add a little extra wall storage. One thing that I have noticed with other DIYers’ methods was that the build was a bit awkward. There are six sections in each shelf, so getting them to fit together correctly was causing some people to end up with the last piece slightly out of sync. So, I thought I would show you how to build and hang honeycomb shelves using my construction tricks.
Crates are a lot like wicker baskets. You can never have too many, and they are perfect for providing quick and easy storage. They also can serve as an addition to your home decor. You can find them in just about any home goods store. But, if you choose to make your own, you can dictate the strength and the design of the crate. And as luck would have it, crates are quite easy to make. To demonstrate how to build simple crates, I will use a few of my images to break the process down for you.
