Hello All! I am back again, to share a really easy DIY project the LMB household took on this weekend. One of these years I'll figure out a way to maintain a regular post schedule.

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...]

DIY Kitchen BookShelf

Welcome back, I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer time, making memories and catching rays. LMB and I have enjoyed the wonderful Michigan summer that we have been longing for, high 80's during the day and mid 60's at night, we love it. As you know, from LMB, we have recently renovated our house with new kitchen cabinets and counters, along with updated flooring and interior doors. One of our favorite, modest upgrades to our home was the five pane doors that you can see throughout the entire home, it really accents our desire to make this house reflect our cottage style and we truly love them. The doors that were replaced have been put to use for the most part, they have been bolted to the walls in the garage for added storage for tools and wood. I had a few scrap pieces that were taking up some space in the corner and decided that they either had to go, or be used for something, and with that I created these DIY Kitchen Bookshelf The DIY Kitchen Bookshelf has sides … [Read more...]
