Win A $1500 Lowe’s Shopping Spree

Let’s face it, there’s never enough time or money to complete all of the projects we have on our lists.  But what if you had $1500 to spend at your local Lowe’s to buy all of the materials you need for those DIY projects you’ve been wanting to work on for months?  Think that might get you in […]

10 Beautiful Rustic Serving Trays

Rustic serving trays have become extremely popular as coffee table centerpieces in recent years, but they don’t have to be just for show.  A quality serving tray can be amazingly functional and a nice touch for serving drinks at a backyard party or barbecue. Because they’re not overly complex to build, you can find some beautiful trays […]

DIY Leather Belt & Wood Shelf

This is the first time I’ve seen this type of DIY shelving unit, but I was very impressed and completely sold on the leather and wood combination.  The most cost prohibitive part of this project is going to be the leather belts, as they tend to be expensive when purchased new (tip: you can find […]

Build Your Own AC Unit Cover

I don’t know about you, but one thing that drives me crazy about most backyards is the unsightly air conditioning unit that always seems to be placed in the most obvious location on the property. It’s like the contractors don’t think for one second about placing the unit in a less visible corner of the house or […]

DIY Bathroom Storage Crates

I had a customer inquire the other day about building some type of bathroom storage organizer for towels, soap and other small items.  I’ve built something similar to this in the past with my under sink bathroom storage crate, but for this bathroom she wanted something a little bigger, with some additional space.  I did […]
