Refinish Cedar Shutters…
Since the weather has been so nice lately, I thought this would be a great time to do some much needed maintenance on some outside items. At the top of that list is my board and batten cedar shutters. It has been 3 years since they were stained and installed, and they are really begging for some attention. So, I thought I would quickly go over how I refinish cedar shutters and keep them looking good.
As promised, I am demonstrating how I made the cedar top for my DIY Island last week. This particular tabletop build is done using 6″ construction grade cedar planks. Now if you know anything about cedar, you know that the construction grade lumber is quite rough, and it may seem like an unusual choice for a DIY tabletop. However, it actually makes a beautiful rustic piece when done properly. In fact, if you try it, you may never want to use standard pine (most DIYer’s wood of choice) again.
MY Easy DIY Island…
Just recently I decided to build a DIY island to go in my guest house. I really wanted a cedar topped island, but knew that this was not the typical countertop material for an island. But, I decided that I would go ahead with the project and try to demonstrate how to easily throw one of these together using only wood materials that can be found at any big box store.

So, what more is there to do than to perform an overhaul, and this is how I repair sling chairs and chaises.
