If you know me well at all, you know how much I enjoy shopping at Home Depot. I call it my happy place. I love to just run in and get what I need, but even more than that–browsing the aisles looking for new ways to use their items sparks my creativity. So imagine how thrilled I am to be working with them to promote this month’s DIH Harvest Yard Sign workshop!
I’ve been wanting to make a ONE pallet project. This month’s Power Tool Challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. I made an easy potting table out of a wooden pallet I got from a neighbor. This is a fairly easy project with minimal cuts.
I’m always looking for inspiration for projects, everywhere I go. On my daily walks with Lulu Mae I pass a neighbor’s house and have long admired a wooden slat bench on their porch. I thought for a long time that I would make one out of a couple of chairs. BUT! Then I got those great reclaimed wooden slats from a neighbor . . .
It’s time for August’s Power Tool Challenge. This month’s theme is Use Unconventional Materials. I used fabric! Other projects include pipes and more! You’ll love all the new ideas. I love my new DIY Drop Cloth Hammock!
The Power Tool Challenge Team is back this month with fabulous, creative weekend garden projects to inspire you. Some are similar and a few are very different, but all are very creative. Be sure to hop over to see all the details on the blog.
What a lovely planter we have to share with you today. A hanging planter that is made from cedar scraps. Leave it to Mindi to make something so darn cute out of scraps. This would look oh so pretty on my DIY Picket fence! So funny how Mindi and I think alike. I have been toying with something very similar, but couldn’t quite figure out how to make it work….
I am so excited to share this month’s Power Tool Challenge project. The theme was Summer Fun, and I DID struggle with trying to figure out WHAT to make. But when I figured it out, I ran with it and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I made a portable diy pallet bar. It’s so easy to set up, store and transport for on-the-go parties and functions. I did a little video so you can see exactly how easy it sets up.
A $5 chippy chair planter? Yep, this project was so easy, and I love how it looks. The chippy chair got a quick white wash paint makeover and it was ready to display my pretty Boston fern. Hop over to see more chair planter ideas.
For this month’s power tool challenge the theme is outdoor/patio. I use a pocket hose for watering plants and flowers on my patio and I’m tired of it laying on the ground. I decided this was the perfect nudge I needed to fix this problem. I hope you enjoy seeing my project and those of my friends’ taking part in this challenge.
After building the DIY picket fence last year, I’ve been wanting to make a new covering for the porch swing. It was in the plans last year, but it never happened. We made the pergola/arbor to look like the one that covers the front gate. It’s been years since I’ve really enjoyed this swing-I look forward to getting back out there and relaxing.
Angie is so lucky to have access to great farmhouse items to repurpose. In today’s project she will show you how to use an old farmhouse water pump as yard decor! How clever and creative. Have you ever seen a farmhouse water pump?
How to make a rustic garden table perfect for potting, entertaining and more. Step by step tutorial using reclaimed fence boards. Weekend project for you to make. Check it out!
Can you spy cabinet doors in this simple bench? I boxed in two doors for each support. This was a fun and easy project that can be done in a couple of hours. Extra seating that could even double as a coffee table? Won’t you click the picture to see how it all came together? I think you’ll be surprised how easy it is.
I have an easy project to share with you today! I love using reclaimed wood for outdoor projects. Sometimes I just make stuff up as I go along, and learn better ways to do things, that is the case with this project. The next rustic ladder plant display I make will be a little different.
Today’s project is very versatile—it can be used as a coffee table or bench indoors or out! It’s easy to make and for me it was relatively free of any cost, just a lot of labor hauling the reclaimed wood and building the table. Look at all of that wonderfully weathered beautiful reclaimed wood! I…
I recently shared a great pallet Christmas tree project from Donna at Funky Junk Interiors on my Facebook page. Later that day I was looking for a quickie project, and decided to make a reclaimed wood Christmas tree similar to Donna’s. I still have a lot of this free weathered wood stored in a…
I’m so excited to show you this outdoor bar I made from reclaimed wood. It would also make a great kitchen island or maybe even a potting bench. I still have a lot of this salvaged wood stored in a woodshed. (this picture is of the wood when I picked it up) I have it separated…
I recently received the new Small Spray Shelter from my friends at Homeright. I’ve had the regular Homeright Spray Shelter for a couple of years now. The smaller one is great for those quick spray painting projects, much better than the standard cardboard box method! We’ve all been there, right? Looking for the perfect cardboard…
I love my new Easy DIY Hose Hanger. I’ve needed to do this for a while now, but I tend to work on fun projects that I can sell in my booth instead of must have projects for the home. Wendi’s Power Tool Challenge theme this month is Summer. I suppose a diy hose hanger…
Oh my gosh guys! I love my white picket fence! Is the yard done? NO. Do I still have more to do? Always! But the fence is done and is finally painted. I took advantage of some cooler weather in early June to really knock out the fence. It took the better part of three…
