Yesterday, I was in the home improvement store, and saw a mom towing a cart full of lumber, pushing a cart full of kids. How awesome, I thought this mom is doing whatever it takes to improve her family's lifestyle.
It seems wherever I look, we are all building! How exciting! And we are building amazing things, being creative and resourceful, using what budgets and tool sets we have.
So I thought today, in the spirit of Feature Friday, to showcase a few of these amazing building projects that include instruction, going beyond what I do and looking to you and other bloggers for inspiration.
Have a great weekend and Happy Building!
Jessie from Imperfectly Polished shows us how she built this table for a fraction of retail cost. I love the metal edge detailing!!!
Love. That's all I've got to say about Whitney from Shanty2Chic's wood sign.
Did you know that in the United States alone, each day, we throw out on average 60 million plastic water bottles? Cragio114 submitted a photo of his greenhouse made from used plastic water bottles and 2x2 as a post on this site. Check it out!
So we all got scraps lying around from projects. Why not drill a few holes in them and add some rope and create nautical inspired wall shelves? Certainly beats the $69 price tag at Pottery Barn Kids! Love this idea from Rebecca at Project Nursery.
So seriously ... who really uses those teeny drawers in hall tables? I love how Lindsay from Country Girl Home made this table. Drawers add such complexity, cost and increase the problem potential. What's wrong with just putting faux doors on to get the look? You could add some shelves or crates underneath for additional storage.
Another idea is to have the front half of the top hinge up to hide a charging station or for keys and mittens.
