DIY Primitive Dinning Room Table

DSC_1828

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...]

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...]

DIY Simple Farmhouse Dinning Table

Hey Guys, welcome back! I hope everyone is having a great summer so far. The really warm weather has settled in here in Michigan, so LMB and myself have been planning our first Lake Michigan outing. We haven't been to the Lake since this winter, so we are so very excited. With summer so jam packed, finding ways to build  quality projects in a short period of time has become a necessity. So, this build I really wanted to share with you guys. This DIY simple farmhouse dinning table took me all of 1/2 of a day to build and 1/4 of a day to stain and paint. It is so very simple, it may actually take longer to drive to the store get your materials, than the actual build itself. First, take a look at how it turned out. The Plan. Our piece was to be built to replace the current one we had because of some design characteristics we did not like about it, and to fit our space better. So we measured how much larger we would like this table to be and we had an idea of the pre-fabricated … [Read more...]

Hey Guys, welcome back. Summer has officially kicked off, and it is a little damp in our neck of the woods so far, but LMB and myself are so excited for the much missed and loved Michigan summer. While we lived in North Carolina, we dreamed of moving back and enjoying the High 80 's and moderate humidity, compared to the blistering 100 degrees and nearly 100% humidity we felt in NC all summer. There is nothing like hitting the beaches during the day, and having to throw on a sweatshirt at night around a campfire. Although we may not see those sunny days quite yet, we do know it is summertime because of all the family and friends graduation parties. I don't think we have mentioned this before, but my mom is 1 of 13, and all but one of my aunt/uncles has kids, and their kids have kids and so on. So needless to say about 10 years ago we added up all the people in the family and back then we were about 60 cousins, so graduation time is a very busy time of the year for us . This year was an … [Read more...]

DIY Window Bookshelf

Hey Guys, welcome back readers and welcome back sunshine. As the weather begins to climb the ladder towards summer, LMB and myself are becoming much more inspired to create some fun and exciting projects for both inside an outside the home, that breaks from the trend of tables and benches. When I build I tend to focus a lot of attention on perfection. The perfect cut, the perfect angle, the perfect wood...ect. This build really challenged me, because I was using older and weather wooden windows that were missing pieces and not planed or straight on all sides, but the idea of this bookshelf was to create something of use and decorative, out of windows with broken glass panes or non-existent glass all together. This week we created a window bookshelf from some old antique windows and added chicken wire to fill our void. Here is how it turned out.  Now if you are like LMB and myself, and purchase or find old windows along multiple junkin' outings, you most likely have a variety of … [Read more...]
