how to build a shed
FEATURED

This past spring, my parents sold my childhood home, which meant I was left without a workshop as my workshop was in a shed in their backyard… and since I live in studio apartment, I was stranded without a place to run my business or build projects! So, this summer my dad and I partnered up with my incredible friends at The Home Depot to build a 12×12 shed from a DIY Shed Kit and turn that shed into my new workshop. Welcome to the first blog post in my Shed-Shop Series – How to Build a Shed!

how to make a metal table base
FEATURED

Have you wanted to incorporate metal into your woodworking builds but aren’t sure where to start? Always wanted to make a table base but don’t have a welder? Reading this in the voice of an infomercial voiceover actor? Well, I have good news for you (I hope you at least read that one in the infomercial voice)! You can totally create a metal table base without a welder, and I partnered with my awesome friends at Bernzomatic to show you how!

giant yard jenga for backyard
FEATURED

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)! Even better, I’m offering up the free plans for both the game and the carrying case on BuildSomething.com!

  • It’s Thursday, and it’s beautiful outside, so today I’m throwing it back to my DIY Bike Rack with Storage! 🚴🏼‍♀️⁣

You can catch the full tutorial for this build on my YouTube channel (link in bio)! ⁣

  • Each year I partner up with @habitatforhumanity for a cause I seriously believe in - Home Is The Key. ⁣🔑⁣

Did you know there is currently an affordable housing crisis in the United States? In fact, I’ll keep it real (and personal)... even as a full time psychologist who juggles owning a business on the side, I am currently struggling to find a house I can afford and call my own. As of recently, renting a small studio apartment on Long Island was no longer financially/spatially attainable for myself and my other half, so we have moved back in with family to save for our own home. We feel grateful every day to have a roof over our heads as many people struggle to find a place to live for them and their families on a daily basis. 🙏🏼⁣
-⁣⁣
Because the affordable housing crisis hits so close to home, I’m partnering with @habitatforhumanity to help raise money and awareness for others who wish to one day own a home of their own like I do.⁣
-⁣
Donating to this cause is easy (and also free)! In fact, @nissanusa will donate $5 every time someone tags a photo to #homeisthekey this month. You can also donate at some of the places you shop at for your own home and can find all of those details on my blog (link in bio 👆🏼).⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
Together, we can help families in need of a home achieve their dream of having a place to call their own. 💕⁣⁣

  • I know it’s not #ThrowbackThursday, but I stumbled upon three separate pictures of how my workspace has transformed over the past four years, and I just had to share! ⁣
-⁣
Four years ago I had maybe four power tools that were hand-me-downs from my dad and about 30 square-feet of shed to work out of. ⁣
-⁣
Then, I asked for more tools for birthdays and holidays, and earned myself some more space in my dad’s shed (80 square feet, to be exact - swipe to see 👉🏼).⁣
-⁣
After side hustling really hard, adding more tools to my collection, and establishing an individually owned LLC, I am now in a hand-built 144 square foot space that feels like the Taj Mahal compared to my first shop (swipe to last photo 👉🏼)! 🙈⁣
-⁣
Moral of the story, it’s really easy to get discouraged by other peoples’ beautifully large workspaces and gorgeous equipment, but everyone starts somewhere! If I can build a brand and handmade things out of a small shed with limited tools, than anyone can. When your dreams are bigger than your workspace, nothing can stop you. 💕⁣

  • Been MIA this week, but that’s because I’ve been getting in a lot of self-care & shop time in! ⁣
-⁣
So excited to share a new project with @bernzomatic1876 on my YouTube channel & blog today (link in bio 👆🏼) - a DIY Ombré Wood Art Piece (and the ombré pattern wasn’t made with stain, either)! ⁣🔥⁣
-⁣⁣⁣
Check out the full tutorial on my channel today (link in bio) & make sure to subscribe for another project next week! 💕⁣⁣⁣

Happy Fri-Yay, friends! ⁣⁣⁣

  • Pretty sure @chrispy_noise wins the prize for “best anniversary gift ever”. I’m a lucky girl. 😍⁣⁣

I have been googly-eyeing a track saw for years and I am so excited to finally have one in my shop to help mainstream many of the cuts I can’t make because my shop is too small for a proper table saw setup. ⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
Between my new saw and some new found positivity today, I’m feeling the love on this Sawdust Saturday. So excited to finish up this project to share with you this week! 💕⁣⁣

  • Guys! I made my first real cutting board - and, I did it with only THREE power tools (no planer) & @dapproducts! 😍⁣
-⁣
Check out the full details on how I made this build happen with three power tools on my YouTube channel today (link in bio ☝🏼)! ⁣
-⁣
You don’t need super fancy tools to make cool things, I swear! What else would you like to see me make with three tools or less? ⁣

  • Some of my favorite projects are the ones that make you say, “this isn’t going to work, idiot” in the middle of the build... but then end up surprising you by actually working out. ⁣
-⁣
It’ll be a couple of weeks until I can share this one in its full glory on the blog and YouTube channel, but I’m way too excited to keep it all a secret. 😍⁣
-⁣
Feels so good to not only be back on track, mentally, but physically ahead of schedule as well. Hope you all had an amazing weekend! 💕⁣

  • Woodworking and DIY are more than just a business to me... they’re my therapy. My workshop is my happy place and my projects are the product of so many emotions and life reflections. 💕⁣
-⁣
I started my blog as a way to share what made me happy - DIY projects. I legit never thought that anyone other than my mom would read my website (she still does - hi, mom)! But, I look at where I am today and what I have accomplished as a part time content creator and I really am floored. The fact that you guys follow this journey and have allowed me to make it into a full blown side hustle and a small business blows my mind. It means more to me than anyone will ever know. ⁣
-⁣
I hope to never lose sight of the reason I started this journey. To share my projects and to inspire others to make things with their hands, even if it means doing that in a shed in their parents’ backyard (🙋🏻‍♀️). I’m so grateful for the brand that DIY Huntress has morphed into... and it’s all thanks to you for being so awesome and believing in what I do. So, thank you. 💕⁣
