Cute Storage Boxes... Just about FREE baby!

I used yesterday’s disgusting temperatures as an excuse to stay inside and get an indoor project done. I recently made the cubby systems for the baby’s room and for the playroom. DIY Wall Art ~ Chevron and Burlap. Hey there!

I hope you are all having an awesome week! I am here today to share my DIY Hot Glue Gun Holder! This baby is something every girl needs! My Meme gave me a glue gun holder years ago.

Hope you all had an awesome week! Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments and shares on my new plank wall I did in the entryway. I am really excited to share the second half of that wall with you today. This is a fun way to break up any boring wall, not just a planked one! DIY Magnetic Supply Organizer for the Wall. Hey friends!

DIY Magnetic Supply Organizer for the Wall

Back to school is just around the corner for my clan (insert happy dance), and my oldest daughter is all about the supplies. She does come by in naturally… I get giddy when I walk into office supply stores and the supply aisles at Target. I can’t help it. We are in the process of giving her room a little update, and she wanted a space to store some supplies as well as a memo board. She is in a smaller room, so I had to be creative with the space we have. DIY Murphy Desk. With school just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to design a desk to fit a small space.

With 5 kiddos to find space for, I am always trying to think of ways to maximize space and function at the same time. Check out my DIY Murphy Desk! The best part?? It folds up to this super cute and fully functional chalkboard! How fun is that?? DIY Corner Desk. Hey hey guys!

Ash and I have been CrAzY busy these last few weeks. We are wrapping up the renovation of two homes for Open Concept on HGTV in the next week, and we CANNOT wait to show y’all! You will love them… And there are lots of new furniture plans coming with each episode, so get excited people. DIY Cubby Storage Desk. Hey friends! Be sure to catch the next two episodes of our show, Open Concept on HGTV on Sunday, June 12th at 11:00 and 11:30am CST! I love having teenage-ish girls. DIY Large Hand Painted Sign and How-To Video. After many, many requests, on our social media accounts, for a how-to on this Large DIY Hand Painted Sign, we had to give it to you guys Not only do we have the free plans and how-to tutorial for you, we also have a how-to video on our Youtube channel for it too! Just click the image below to come build it with us in our shop! Click HERE for the free printable plans and follow along, as we build it, below! Start with a 4′ x 4′ sheet of 1×2″ plywood. You can buy it just like this from the hardware store (no cutting needed) or you can have it cut from a larger sheet of plywood.

Paint the plywood white. While the paint is drying, download the “Home Sweet Home” file by clicking HERE. Then, connect a projector to your computer. Next, trace each letter, lightly, with a pencil. Once the letters are traced, use an angled craft brush and acrylic paint to fill in each letter. Cubby Storage Shelf. Since moving into her home, Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic has been haunted by an awkward empty space above her fridge that needed something.

While the lack of cabinets might have left most people with underutilized wall space, Ashley exercised her DIY prowess and built a cubby shelf with plans by Ana White. Kitchen, bathroom, playroom, crafting space… I cannot think of a room that couldn’t use a shelf like this! Ashley’s shelf was inspired by Pottery Barn’s retired Mitchell Cubby Shelf. See Ashley’s build in progress at Shanty 2 Chic. Storage for the Playroom! Hey friends! Hope everyone is doing great! I have been crazy building the last few weeks. My older kiddos were with their grandparents this past week which gave me lots of time to get stuff done! I’m sure lots of you saw Ashley’s version of PB’s Cameron Wall Unit she built for her playroom last year. I love it and decided that the new playroom needed something similar… Just a bit smaller. I used Ana’s plan for the open cubby base and her plan for the hutch with doors.
