DIY Window Floor Cabinet

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has shaken off the winter weather, and is ready to dive right into summer. While we are just past our first full year back in Michigan, I tried a few times to sell LMB on moving back to the NC, especially when the forecast had flurries and inches of accumulation in April. Well needless to say, no plans on moving, at least back to NC, but we are definitely looking forward to the warmer months ahead. We have a few projects in the on-deck circle getting ready to hit the blog, and the one I am going to share today is very similar to my previous post, DIY Window Cabinet, but this one is much larger and is meant to fit in those little nooks or that small walls that transitions between rooms. Here is how it turned out.   In order to build this DIY, you will need a much larger window to be used as a door. We found this one on one of our picking trips last fall, and couldn't really find a good place for it by itself, so we decided to use it for … [Read more...]

Scrap Wood Project: DIY Mini Pie Safe

Welcome back! Football season is here and fall is knocking on the door, at least here in Michigan anyway. As sad as saying bye to summer sunshine and boat rides can be, we can look forward to the wonderful foods that usually accompany the cooler weather, especially the desserts. This weeks build is inspired by the upcoming pumpkin season which so happens to be my favorite kind of pie, so I built a Mini Pie Safe from scrap pieces of wood from previous projects. The only thing I had to purchase was the screen, which puts a price tag of 8 dollars on this build. Here is how it turned out... The Build. I started with measuring the typical size of a pie pan which is 9 inches in diameter. From there I took a piece of 1 x 12 for the base and 1 x 12 for the top. I ripped a piece of 2x4 to (4) 1 inch by 1 inch at a length of 33 1/2 inches. I nailed them to the side of both 1 x 12's, flush with each corner. I then fit in two more 1 x 12's for each shelf and nailed it in to the sides, … [Read more...]

DIY Primitive Dinning Room Table

Hi guys, welcome back. If you keep up with LMB's Instagram, she posted a sneak peek of a primitive dinning room table last week, and well here it is. The DIY primitive dinning room table was a real fun build and actually inspired by last months magazine from  Anthropologie. I tried to find a digital copy of the magazine with the picture in it, however I could not, so I tried my best to take a picture of the inspiration. The items about the table that inspired me was the simplicity and elagnance of the table with the tapered edges and slim line table top. The legs I really took appreciation for because of the chunk and scrapes along the edges. The Build. I purchased the same materials as my previous DIY Farmhouse Table, with the exception of the legs. I purchased 4 2x4. The top was the first step of this build, and I used the pre-fabricated tongue in groove pine. I used Gorilla Glue for the joints, following the instructions, damp the mating surface with a wet rag and … [Read more...]
