Re-purposed Card Catalog

Welcome-Welcome! LMB and myself have been scheming this past weekend with new projects for the house, and yes we haven't really finished any of the ones we have started, but that'll come one day...I hope. Here is a little recap of our adventures on top of our re-purposed card catalog. Weekend Recap Let's see... we painted a bunch of end tables with our new Graco Paint Sprayer, oh and a cement rabbit lawn ornament, and a rickety rocking chair ...  I've come to realize, Left Over paint + Trigger happy LMB, everything and anything was up to be painted. 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. Grand Rapids, had a tough weekend with a tornado, which is a rare scene for us up here. Started in on our front living room, and found some really cool stuff. Which got me thinking, what new tools do I need to finish that room … [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 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...]
