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.
Knowing how to frame walls with doorways is a skill that can open up a wealth of options for the DIYer. In a world where open concept rules and walls are shunned, focus on how to construct a proper wall isn’t at the top of the list for most home improvement gurus. Yet, this knowledge can be used to create new storage spaces, to define areas, or to change a floor plan’s layout.
Regardless of what type of shelves that you have, whether they are built-in bookshelves, closet shelves, or kitchen cabinet shelves, it is always a good idea to have them to be adjustable. Adjustable shelves make it possible to customize your space to allow for very tall items or very small items. It also makes it possible to quickly add additional shelves. If you have ever wondered how to make shelves adjustable, the good news is that it is not hard at all!
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.
Trivets are an accessory that every kitchen needs to have. They come in all shapes and sizes, but I really love the wooden ones. This week, my friend Dale (you may remember him from the post on How to build a toy boat) has contributed another great DIY item – this gorgeous trivet! And today, we are going to walk you through the instructions for how to build a wooden trivet just like this one.
