Small wooden boxes are great for many things. You can use them as drawer organizers, to group decor displays, or as storage. They are sort of like the little sister of the ever popular crate. You can never have too many. So, do you want to know how to make wooden box sets?
Not long ago, Restoration Hardware had this adorable, industrial desktop bookrack that I wanted. But of course, it was quite expensive, and now has been discontinued. Not being one to spend money on something that I believe I can make for a fraction of the cost, I decided that I would make my own. I have a lot of extra plumbing and structural piping laying around, so this looked like a good way to use some. I thought that I would share the results and the details on how I made it.
Last year, I posted a reveal of my home theater. As a result, I received numerous requests for the details about how I made my lighted movie poster boxes. I had initially planned to post the instructions for this DIY shortly following that reveal. However, I inadvertently deleted several images that were necessary to provide a good detailed tutorial. Well, fast forward to today. I stumbled across a few images that had been saved in the cloud. So, now I am able to put together this DIY on how to make a lighted movie poster box. Yay!
Raised gardens can be bought as a kit or constructed completely as a DIY project. Regardless of how you get your raised garden, they can be a wonderful way to grow veggies. However, they do have one downside. If made of wood, they will eventually rot. Decomposition is inevitable. But, there are ways to construct a raised bed that will lengthen the life and the looks. Because I wanted to do both, I decided to construct a DIY composite raised garden.
So, I needed a thread shelf to hang on my new wall storage system, and I have seen a few similar to this one floating around on the web.
Like this one found at Sugar Bee Crafts,
or this one found at The Creative Homemaker. I like how she added the bobbin nails. I may do that later.
However, none were exactly what I wanted. So,off to the hardware store to pick up some supplies and get started on one customized to my requirements. (Note: as of this photo I still haven’t moved all of my thread supply to the case. But I will get around to it eventually).
