If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ll remember the days when I sold custom signs on Etsy and made a living off it while attending graduate school. I still to this day get so many questions about how I made my signs! Well, in all honesty, being a graduate student on a budget meant I couldn’t afford a stencil cutting machine. So, I had to get crafty! To help celebrate my one-year anniversary of my PhD, I partnered with my friends at Varathane to spill my secret as to how I made custom signs and stencils without a stencil cutter and how you can too!
One of my favorite parts about being a DIY blogger is that I get to be part of a community of insanely talented makers. So, cue my excitement when a bunch of my favorite creators invited me to a fun Wood Art Challenge! I already have a tutorial on my blog for Geometric Wood Art and thought it would be fun to try something with plywood this time. To help me with this project, I partnered with my amazing friends at Rust-Oleum to show you how to make this piece of wall art in one weekend! Here’s how.
Ever since moving into our apartment, I’m obsessed with creating custom furniture for our small space. As of recently, I’ve been craving a retro coffee table… and now my prayers have been answered. I partnered with my friends at HANDy Paint Products to create a one-of-a-kind retro table for our minimalistic space. Want to learn how to make your own? Well, it’s your lucky day! I have the free plans and template for this project right here in this post!
Those of you who have been following my journey know how obsessed I am with my dog, Titan. He’s my best bud and partner in crime. And since I sleep in comfort and style, I decided it was time for him to do so as well. That being said, I partnered with BuildSomething.com & Kreg Tool to help create the most epic DIY Custom Wooden Dog Bed for my BFF. Now, Titan is sleeping in a bed that is nicer than my own (since I live in a studio and technically don’t have one).
