Happy almost-spring, friends! With the weather warming up, I’m looking forward to more time with the shop doors open! Better weather means way more projects too, so today I’m tackling a tool I use a lot in my shop – rotary tools! As per usual, I’ll be sharing the ins and outs of the rotary tool here on the website and demo’ing some rotary tool uses over on my Instagram! There is a ton of …
Spring is approaching, which means more creative ways to spend time with loved ones and celebrate fun events – like St. Patrick’s Day! And, to help keep the celebrations going even in the most unconventional of years, I was challenged by my friends at Carhartt and Guiness to find creative ways to celebrate at home for their #MakeYourOwnParade campaign! So, to help keep things safe and fun, I created a DIY concrete coffee table that doubles as a drink cooler or fire pit for outdoor entertaining!
Last year I built a custom sliding barn door for the back room in my parents’ house. While the door is holding up great, the room itself is beginning to lose it’s identity. It’s currently a catch-all for my dad’s work stuff and also a pseudo-mud room (without the benefits of being set up as a mudroom)… and with everyone needing a home office space at the moment, my dad has been feeling a bit lost. So, to help him get organized, I transformed a cluttered corner in the back room into a smart and efficient home office and smart home hub with a custom DIY corner desk that I built for under $150 in lumber!
After two and a half years in my shed-shop (I cannot believe it’s been that long already), it is finally time for a shakeup in this little space. The past few years in here have been incredible, but it’s getting a little crowded in here. I also underestimated just how big my little business would grow in this space (thanks to all of you)! So, it’s time to make this shed work better as a workshop and a space to document my content with all of you… starting with my tool wall! I’ve been wanted to create a DIY concrete accent wall in my life for a while now, so why not do it in the workshop! This is a project that works well for any space (not just a workshop), and I can’t wait to show you how I made it happen!
