Holiday season is around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning those handmade holiday gifts! To help get those holiday gears turning, I partnered with my amazing friends at Kreg and BuildSomething to create a giant Jenga set for my parents’ new backyard. I also decided to take it a step further and create a mobile carrying case for it as well (since, those suckers are heavy)!

So, when my friends at Kreg asked me to partner on a project for Build Something’s website, I jumped at the opportunity to make us a West Elm inspired rustic-industrial style shoe rack for our apartment.
