Today’s post is a collaboration post with Robert the founder of Sawinery.net – They are a US based blog following the different trends in the woodworking & power tools industry. Check them out at https://www.sawinery.net/

There are so many great woodworking projects for beginners – so if you’ve been wanting to try your hand at a woodworking project and don’t know where to begin go check them out, all the projects are from fabulous fellow bloggers that have tried their hand at woodworking.

Despite the fact that everything in woodworking can be called DIY, looking at some masterpieces we can never imagine that they are made by hand. But, with processed wood, you can make miracles and all you have to do is to pick a DIY project for yourself.

Wood DIY will help you make your family and friends happy with a new furniture piece and make you happy with a new craft. There are many options for DIY projects, but here is the ultimate list of the most popular ones and the ones you will certainly need in your daily life.

Wooden Mobile Holder

If we could choose this would be one of the most used product you can make. We all use mobile phones 24h 7 days a week and this thing can make our lives easier. We are all familiar with the situation when you leave your phone somewhere and you can’t find it. This wooden project is demanding, can be in many shapes but it’s worth it.

Floating shelves

Free space in the house or extra crafts you don’t know where to put? This an ideal product for you. But, we have to admit. We all need shelves. Floating shelves will help you organize empty walls without taking too much space around the house. The project is not too demanding and it can be made with a variety of woods and wood colors.

DIY Chair Drink Holder

Perfect choice for your patio and cozy coffee corner will be chairs that are lightweight so that can be moved easily during rainy days. Complete with the DIY drink arm holder wide enough so that you can put a cup there, make any patio chair a real enjoyment place.

DIY Accessory Holder & Organizer

A lot of jewelry and not enough space? This is a great way to solve that. Using wood and a piece of net will help you have a very nice jewelry holder and to put your accessories, earrings and all that you need so that you can easily find it even when you are in a rush.

Sofa Arm table

How many times were you sitting on your sofa and thinking how nice it would be to have your cup just next to you, without any fear of spilling? Here is the chance for you to make an arm table and never have trouble like this again. This is one of the simpler projects you you could do. Enjoy your coffee and your sofa at the same time!

I’m having a JUNKTOBERFEST Sale

One wo(man)’s junk is another wo(man)’s treasure. Well, at least, I hope so. I’m trying to clean out my basement and the seacan that is chalk full of fabulous vintage goods.

I have accumulated a ton of “smalls” as we call them in the vintage world and need to clear them out as I am hoping to focus on upcycling and repurposing items to sell.

I’ve decided to have a BIG supersale and call it JUNKTOBERFEST.  All items will range from $1.00 to nothing over $10.00. The ad I created is listed below. I will offer shipping at buyer’s cost.

Here is a sneak peek of just a few of the items up for sale. Continue reading

Upcycled Office Wall Art-DIY

Recently there have been some work office/workstation changes at my day job and I was lucky enough to get an office of my own.  I wanted to make it more “homey” since I spend a tremendous amount of my life at “work”.

For some office inexpensive wall art, I decided to go with a coastal/nautical theme AND  my goal was to decorate on a budget and make or upcycle most of what goes into my office.

I found these vegetable pictures at a thrift store marked from $10.00 down to $4.0o then 1/2 price – my cost was $2.00. I liked the frames as soon as I saw them.  I taped off the frames and painted over the pictures with “Acrylique” paint called warm white.

I kind of forgot to take a picture of them painted 😦 (before the vinyl) oops.

Next I headed to my Cricut and cut out some simple coastal/nautical shapes. I had some leftover blue vinyl from my Ciad Mile Failte sign. Love it when I can use what I already have.

I decided on an octopus, a sailboat, an anchor and a starfish.  Continue reading

Upcycled Thrift Store Finds

Hey – thanks for stopping by.

It’s been awhile since I’ve upcycled a thrift store find.  I’m going to show you three things I recently bought with the intention to upcycle but decided I would only change two of them. You will see what I mean and I’d love to know if you agree or would change it.

First is this picture frame with spots for 8 photos. It has two picture hangers on the back so that you can hang it vertically as shown (the way I plan to use it) or horizontally. 

I bought it with the intention to use it as part of my cubicle makeover at the place I work when I’m not having fun vintage hunting or blogging. I will do a post when that makeover is complete. The picture frame is from Goodwill and was marked $3.50 but lucky me it had a green tag and it was green tag 50% off day – woohoo $1.75 – you just can’t beat the price.

I wasn’t keen on the color so I decided to paint it.  I used a latex Sherwin Williams color called Nantucket. Two coats and it was ready for the freshly cleaned glass and some photos…which I have not had printed off yet (next on the list).

 

For the second upcycled project, I bought a wood sign from Value Village  for Continue reading
