Building a custom cabinet can be intimidating for someone who is new to DIY and woodworking. I know that when I first started, I didn’t build anything unless I had a plan and spent a ton of time studying it, literally!
I like to sew and have a large rack that holds all of my [...]
Here are plans for a slim cabinet with some really neat detail on the front… The inspiration piece has rivets in a scrolling pattern on the front. This detail can be recreated by drawing a pattern with a pencil then using upholstery tacks to create the design or by using a scroll stencil and paint!
Here are plans for a chair that can be finished and upholstered to complement any decor. They would be really awesome each painted a different color but all upholstered with the same fabric! Whoa!

I love the self healing mats (also known as “rotary cutter mats”). I have two and use them constantly! I mounted mine to plywood a few years ago and find it really handy when I want to “work” while sitting on the couch instead of at the table or my desk!

With the holidays coming up, these trays will be perfect for serving up fabulous food to your guests! Plus, two of these trays can be made from one quarter sheet (2′ x 4′) of 1/2″ plywood which makes it very inexpensive. This is also a project that can be completed in an afternoon! Yay!

Last week, my cousin posted a picture on Facebook of Halloween lanterns made by her girls. I thought they were really cute and asked them to send the instructions to me so I could share them.
This also gave me the opportunity to interview them and ask them about their craftiness… We [...]
I think I need a bigger house. I keep finding all of these great furniture pieces, drawing plans for them, and wanting to build them. I don’t have room for any more furniture! I’m trying to reduce my “collection” as it is. In all reality, a new house to contain my “collection” is totally [...]
Living in the country, we see all kinds of pests and critters. My son is deathly afraid of spiders. My daughter is petrified of grasshoppers. My heart stops when I see a snake. We also have ticks, ants, field mice, wasps, raccoons, and these giant wood rats that I swear are going to carry off [...]
