Creating custom furniture doesn’t have to be complicated! I purchased a $40 chest of drawers from Ikea and turned it into a woven cane nightstand! Even better, this DIY Ikea Hack only took me one weekend to complete! Here’s how!
Between working on the store and working… well, at work… I haven’t been able to juggle many home projects. But, there is one project I have been wanting to do that I was able to find a few days to swing, and I am so stoked about it! I have been wanting to transform a floor mirror I purchased at Target a few years ago into a live edge mirror using a cut off piece of lumber from the fireplace mantle I made a few months ago. So, I recycled the glass and made a DIY live edge mirror!
As of recently, I have been finding myself completely obsessed with mid-century modern sideboards and media cabinets. It’s almost like a disease. I just stare at them and wish I could afford the upwards of $1,000 price tag that exists on some of these beautiful units. Then opportunity knocked when I was challenged to create a cool project from only one sheet of plywood. Taa-daa! Easy modern media cabinet for literally 1/10th of the price including hardware and finishes!
Update: This build now has TWO versions! Keep reading to check them both out!
If you missed the announcement on my Instagram page… my other half is opening his own bike shop! So, I’ve been hard at work over the past three months transforming the retail space and helping his small business owner dreams come true! I am especially pumped today, cause I can finally share a fun project that we did in the space — a giant DIY Faux Brick Accent Wall! This was a crazy big project, and I had a lot of help. But, the concept was super simple and made a huge impact! Here’s how I did it!
