DIY Rustic TV Stand

Hello Hello. What a crazy past few weeks for us here at home, for America, and for the World. With all this craziness bombarding us, it is sometimes very therapeutic to hop into the garage or workshop and pump out a DIY project, listening to tunes, and if your lucky enjoying the sunshine. Today is a very-very important day to the LMB household, Veterans Day or Armistice Day. We look to this day beyond my service, but to those others who have served, and are so thankful for the freedoms from the sacrifices. I am so thankful for my experiences, and miss my beloved Marine Corps so very much, but looking back and reflecting on all of the good and positive impact the branches do for this world, and to all those whom have set the positive examples across the globe, I thank you. The Veterans that I now stand with, not only endured countless sacrifices, but did their very best to uphold and embody an image of America where ever they went, interacting with the people of whatever country we are … [Read more...]

On Deck Build: An Olde Revamp is coming soon.

Hello-Hello. I have been in an out these past few weeks, with projects and updates, and thank you for all of the support from last weeks nesting boxes, fun and easy build that looks to have gone over very well. I looked through my DIY projects and laugh a some, and surprised by others, how time has gone by. To this very day, my number one viewed project and general build inquires are from my very first shared DIY, my DIY TV Stand. I built this actually a week or two before I posted it, didn't really know how to formulate a How-To very well (still don't). I have noticed a lot of my questions have formulated around gray areas of confusion with my directions, and reading back through it, I agree very confusing. So... my very next build in the lineup is going to be a revamp of my DIY TV Stand, with better instructions, better pictures, maybe even a little video (no promises). Hopefully I can shine some light on that build, and add just touches of experience I have obtained along my … [Read more...]

DIY Nesting Boxes

Hello-Hello. Back again with a very easy and very functional DIY Nesting Box tutorial. Before we jump in wanted to share some of what has been going on in the LMB household over the past few weeks, if you missed it from LMB or our social media. Well we finished up the front room shiplap, and what a job that was. I felt like I was cutting shiplap for days on days. I decided not to post about it, because not only have we posted about it before, I am sure how-to's are out there enough with how big the trend is right now. I really love the texture and character it brings to our home, and enjoy all the tedious work it takes to put up. I know there are some people out there starting to dislike this trend, but for our home I think it just belongs, and will always fit right in. As you already have read and witnessed over social media, LMB finally got her trip to Magnolia, and while I really-really wished I could have been there with her for all of her happy moments, I was very busy at home. If … [Read more...]
