Boy, did you guys ever love our Restoration Hardware inspired shelves !!!
Last week I told you some nice people came to visit to drop off some things. I suppose I was a little unclear. One of my blog friends, Missy of My Cottage Charm wrote me an email recently asking if I could make some cupboards for her mom. You see her mom had all the stuff, but needed someone to put it all together. Missy’s dad Carl, her brother Adam and her son Lincoln traveled over an hour to bring me all this:
Space-Saving Solution In its "up" position, this fold-away table serves as a handy message center; in its "down" position, it's a simple breakfast table or work space. To make it yourself, all you need are everyday lumber, a few hinges and chalkboard paint.
These look like they would be a blast. Giant tinkertoys! PLYWOOD PLAY PLANKS Give your child countless hours of interesting, instructive, and clean play by making him this jumbo-size set of building blocks.
Some of you may remember a while back when I made these beauties from some pallets. Someone requested a tutorial and I'm happy to oblige, especially since I was planning on doing that anyway when they were all done. At the time they were only primed white and now they're a bright and luscious red :) So I took a few more pics and decided it was tutorial time!
How To Repair Damaged Wood Veneer » Curbly | DIY Design Community « Keywords: furniture restoration, wood repair, furniture repair, veneer repairVeneer damage is an instant deal breaker when I'm on the hunt, and I know I'm not alone. The reason? I just plain don't know how to fix damaged wood veneer. Until now, that is! Woodworker wizard, Curt Martin has done a mahhhvaluss series of videos on eHow that show you everything you need to know about repairing wood veneer. There is some glue spreading lag time, and I wish the repair site was more visible, but overall, Curt does a dandy job of explaining and demonstrating exactly how to repair any wood veneer problem you may encounter out there on the wild thrifting frontier.
Furniture & ideas
A few months ago I stumbled on the website, knockoffwood.blogspot.com . To my amazement, Ana has been making “plans” of popular furniture….that are easy and available to DIYers like you and me! For the past few months I’ve been practically drooling over her amazing work and dreaming of where I would put these once unattainable pieces in my house. I wasn’t sure when I would be able to convince my husband to let me spend money on wood on something that might or might not turn out. I don’t blame his doubt as I’ve never really worked with wood outside of a few very very simple projects.
finished . first we mocked everything out in the 1/2" black steel... we used two 4 foot pipes for the sides, and a 3 foot pipe for the top and two 18" pipes with a union for the bottom... we changed a few things at this point.. bottom structure... changed to T's instead of elbows... needed to use 3" pipes to support the wood shelf... then added a 45 degree elbow and plug at the top for a hanging front and back hook...
