Spectacular Chandelier Makeover This chandelier was one of the first items I ever purchased at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Build an Easy Work Table

How to Build an Easy Work Table For several years, I used an old hollow-core door on sawhorses as my work table. The door finally decided to call it quits one day in the middle of a project. I don’t blame it for quitting – I certainly put that poor door through the wringer! It was used and abused, hammered on, drilled on, painted on, and helped complete many projects! I had to have another one pronto so I’ll share how to build an easy work table. I’d really like to build the table of my dreams but that will

Build a Timberland Bed

Build a Fabulous Bed with the Timberland Queen Bed Plans! I like the rustic simplicity of this bed – plain in style and construction. The Timberland queen bed plans are constructed with planked 1×10 lumber and the upper canopy frame is completely optional – the legs for the headboard and footboard can be cut off, if desired! The plans are drawn for a queen bed. Adjustments for larger or smaller mattresses are as easy as changing the length of the boards. Materials: 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws 1-1/4″ screws Key hole bed rail brackets (like these) Wood glue Sandpaper (100, 150, 220

Table Legs or Posts from 2x4s

SANY0609 copy
How to Build Table Legs or Posts from 2x4s A while back, I mentioned my friends, Chris and Elizabeth, who had an awesome idea using 2×4 lumber to make posts. I love this idea and decided to make the legs for my new dining room table using their method, which in my opinion is quite economical as I have a hard time finding untreated 4×4 posts in my area. Keep in mind that when posts are constructed this way, the actual measurements will be 3″ x 3″ so the dimensions of any pieces framing into these posts will have to

Build the Alicia Planter Box

Planter Box-Copy
Build an Awesome Addition to the Garden with the Alicia Planter Box Plans! I love this planter box – tall, wide, and with plenty of room for potted plants on the slatted shelf! The Alicia Planter Box plans can be constructed out of cedar or pressure treated lumber (which can be painted after it has plenty of time to dry!). The box can also be constructed out of regular pine provided the planter box is placed in a covered area and the inside is lined with plastic to keep the untreated wood from rotting. Materials: 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws (rated
