had lots of fun building this project for my grandauther, she's only a year and a half old and I'm pretty sure she will enjoy this see saw for a long time.
Was my first DIY project and was surprised as to how easy it was. The directions in the plan were spot on and look forward to future projects.
This bench is on my back porch. Its nice to have a few extra seats when entertaining!
After building the mudroom bench I knew I would need something to store our shoes. After being inspired by images of unused dresser drawers with casters added on, I decided to and base my idea off of this. However, I knew that our shoe drawer would need to be much bigger to nicely fit under the mudroom bench.
Ironically, this rolling shoe drawer is made out of unused shelves and bookcase sides that I found at the as-is section at Ikea! The handles on the drawers were found there, as well. For .50 cents each, I could not pass that up. :)

Modified slightly from the Rhyan Console design to include glass front doors so I could display some books and have remote access to my electronics for the TV.
I made the two different sized tables to accomodate the size of the room and to not encroach on the window too much.
There was brick above my fireplace. I decided that I needed to lighten it up, but didn't want to necessarily paint the brick. Instead, I decided to panel above the fireplace using a board and batten style. I am so happy with the results! It is lighter and brighter in the room and goes with the style in the rest of the room (walls have board and batten as well).
6 feet long gallery shelves using Ana's plans! They were built in 10 minutes! Total cost was about $30 for all three.
My wife loved the Benchwright table at pottery barn, and I did not love the price. Got a lot of ideas from this site and tried to make it my own. The outside and legs are made from 5"x5" Cypress, purchased from a local saw mill. I used a kreg jig on the entire thing along with lag bolts and glue. It is very heavy and I can jump up and down on it. Bought the hardware from Fastenal. Fun project, took about 16 hours total.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
