Repurpose Roundup – January 2015

By |February 13th, 2015|

I loved this small rolling metal cart but it was a little plain and slightly wonky.I added barnwood to the sides to make it sturdier and give it some character. Then casters to the bottom to improve the function of this handy little piece of furniture.I wanted to give a new life to this waterfall […]

Cabinets, Cabinets, Cabinets – January 2015

By |January 21st, 2015|

Time to gather up some parts and pieces and make something funky. The collection consisted of two old kitchen drawers, one old cabinet, small Ikea drawers (yard sale finds), trim from the junk pile, hardware and chicken wire.The obvious start was to remove that lovely floral contact paper from the small cabinet, with the help […]

Rustic Red Cabinets – January 2015

By |January 12th, 2015|

I managed to get this small pile of red boards from a neighbor who was taking down an old out building. I had just enough for a tall country cabinet. I kept the design simple and added some fence boards for the shelves. I made the door out of 1 x 2’s that I ripped […]

Project Roundup – December 2014

By |January 10th, 2015|

I cut the center panel out of an old door to use as the front frame.
The back was made with fence boards. I attached them together with square lumber which also serves as the shelf supports.  After it was assembled and attached to the back of the old door, I added the shelves and, of […]

This retro style cabinet was a great size and very well built. I liked the hinged drawer but I thought it would be better if the opening was bigger so I removed both and replaced it with one drop down door. I chose black, for the outside, and gray for the herringbone stencil and a […]

Rustic Dining Table and Arrow Light 3/12/14

By |March 12th, 2014|

I started this project with an old school house table. I loved the solid oak base that was hidden under all the thick black paint but the MDF table top, with it’s many names carved in it, had to go. The width of the base had to be changed to accommodate a top […]

Crate Board Light and More Crate Furniture 2/25/14

By |February 26th, 2014|

I got a large amount of drawers that a retail store was getting rid of.

The size of them worked great with the crates but I didn’t like the boxes and fronts, so I built new frames with pallet boards and used barn wood for the fronts.

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to […]
