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 will be doing a post on it, hopefully sometime this week. We hung a barn door slider in the dining room, it turned out great, check out LMB's Instagram (here), for a, "before the post," sneak peak.

Which got me thinking, what new tools do I need to finish that room … [Read more...]

When decorating and staging a room, finding that perfect piece for the particular spot can quickly become a wild goose chase. You may have an idea in your head, or had to have an inspirational piece of furniture that would anchor the room that you would later decorate around. Countless searches on the internet or trips to the local boutique or antique store does not have what you want, what do you do? You build it. The best way to fit something into that last spot in a room, may take a little brainstorming to get exactly what you want, but with a couple tricks you will get exactly what you want, and save some cash while doing it. Here is how our DIY Spindle Bench. Before we get into the build and materials, let me share some tricks to building a piece for a specific room.
