In case Mother Nature (or, if you’re like me, your allergies) hasn’t told you yet, Spring is in full force! Warmer weather and longer days mean time for outdoor projects, and I couldn’t be more excited! If you’ve been following my journey on Instagram, you’ll know that I am in the middle of a huge shed-shop renovation. Which means it’s time to spice up the exterior of the shop to look as pretty as the rest of my parents’ yard! So, I partnered up with my friends at The Home Depot and Olympic to create a pair of modern slat wood planters and made some magic happen!
I recently partnered up with my insanely talented friend DIY Danie to partake in a thrift-flip challenge where we each sent a box filled with items that were thrifted from our own homes! Well, one of the items that Danie sent me was a large roll of blue velvet fabric, and I knew that I had to make a bench from it! This project only took me one weekend to create and was so much fun to make come to life!
I am so excited about today’s project, because today I am collaborating with one of my favorite people ever, DIY Danie! For those of you that don’t know Danie, she is a content creator from Canada (and easily one of the most creative people I’ve ever met). Danie and I have been planning a collaboration for a while, but with travel restrictions still in place, we decided to do it from afar. We sent each other a box filled with random items from our homes to make DIY projects with, and it was epic! Ready to see how this thrift flip challenge turned out? Let’s do it!
Now that the floors and walls in my workshop are complete, I can finally start working on getting my tools organized! I have been wanting a dedicated space for my miter saw for the longest time, so I decided to create a mobile miter saw stand with storage for my set up! This was a fun build that can be fully customized to fit any storage needs. Want the details? Let’s do it!
