DIY Copper & Wood Bar Cart

FEATURED

News flash – I love entertaining. Don’t believe me? I’ve created DIY wine racks, outdoor bars, and beverage holders on this website time and again! To prove myself a Class-A partier one more time, today I’m sharing my newest party-related project, a DIY copper & wood bar cart! Even better, my friends at Bernzomatic helped keep this celebration alive by sponsoring this build! Let’s get the this party started!

FEATURED

One of the reasons why I started building my own furniture was because I couldn’t afford to buy the pieces I was drooling over in the windows of stores (cue, “how much is that doggy in the window”, but sub “doggy” for “dresser”). That being said, I was pretty stoked when I was asked to join in on a knockoff furniture challenge with a slew of amazingly talented bloggers. Even cooler, our budget was less than $100. So, I made a replica of a $400 nightstand from reclaimed pallet wood and $40 in lumber. Even cooler, I partnered up with my amazing family at DAP Products to turn this vision into a budget-friendly reality!

DIY Easy Reclaimed Wood Wall

FEATURED

If you’ve been following my Shed-Shop Series on my website and YouTube, you’ll know that one of the most exciting parts of my shop build was customizing the space to make it feel like home. Because the build was so stressful, I was looking for an easy and beautiful way to make an impact, so I partnered up with Plank & Mill to add their reclaimed barn wood to my shop walls. Now I have an awesome backdrop for my blog posts & videos – here’s how I did it (you can also see  a video tutorial of this project as well)!

  • Remember that big project I’ve been working on for the last few weeks? Well it’s live (and I may or may not be having a heart attack right now because I’ve been so nervous-excited to share). 😭😍⁣
-⁣
I built a DIY live edge dining room table with WELDED LEGS (I still can’t believe I welded those bases) for my family and you can find the full build video on YouTube today (link in bio ☝🏼)!⁣
-⁣
This was hands-down the most technical build I have ever done, and I could not have done it without the help of my amazing friends @homedepot, @dapproducts, and you guys!⁣
-⁣
Please check out the build video today and let me know your thoughts! I already can’t wait for our big family Thanksgiving dinner! 💕⁣

  • YOU GUYS, I DID IT. Remember that giant slab (or, two) that I’ve been working with for the past few weeks? Well, I finally finished building and THIS SUNDAY I’ll finally be spilling the beans on my giant project! 😱
-
This was hands down the toughest project I’ve ever tackled. I pushed my personal and shop capacities to the limits and totally challenged my skill set on this one. Seeing this project complete made me feel so, so proud and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. 💕
-
I hope you’ll subscribe to my YouTube channel to watch the full build (link in bio ☝🏼)! Can’t wait to share on Sunday! 😍

  • Just spent the past two days at the #NorthwoodsMakerMeetup with @masepoxies and some SERIOUSLY talented makers. 😍⁣
-⁣
My favorite part of what I do is meeting other people, learning from them, and exploring their journeys as well... and that’s exactly what I did this week. I am very grateful for @masepoxies for putting together this event and giving me the opportunity to meet and work with some major talent. 💕⁣
-⁣
I especially had SO much fun collabing with and learning from @lovekelseyrae how to make a few pieces this weekend- she is insanely talented and I can’t wait to work with her again soon (go check out her work and thank me later 😘)!⁣
-⁣
Can’t wait to get back to the shop and start incorporating what I’ve learned into my work! Get ready for some more epoxy resin & wood projects. Anything you’d like to see me tackle?⁣

  • You guys... My first welding project was a total success! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I just finished fabricating my first set of matching steel furniture bases and I did it all by myself. 😍⁣
-⁣
Although this project feels like it’s taking forever, I’m really pushing the limits and teaching myself new techniques. Seriously, never be afraid to push yourself and try new things. You might be surprised by the outcome. ⁣
-⁣
Are these pieces far from perfect? Yes. But, are they far from imperfect? Absolutely! They’re strong, and they’re mine, and I can’t wait to wrap up this gigantic project today and share it with you! 💕⁣

  • Remember that time @pneumaticaddict came to visit my shed-shop? Well, we started a project together and then finished that project in our own shops. 💕⁣
-⁣
Check out my version of our DIY Resin & Wood Combs on my channel today (and also see how my new @ryobitoolsusa rotary tool totally saved my backside on this build)! ⁣

YouTube link in profile - make sure to check out Elisha’s version as well while you’re there! 💕⁣

  • I’ve been a little quiet on social media because this project (let’s be real, + 4 others as well) has been consuming my life (and my shop). But, despite the fact that this project is taking forever I have never been prouder of myself for taking on what is hands down the largest and most technical project I have ever tackled in my life. 😅⁣
-⁣
I’ve honestly been doubting my skills on this project since day one, but all of my friends in this amazing community have been there to answer all of my questions and reassure me that I’m doing a great job with the tools that I have, and I am so grateful. 🙏🏼
-⁣
My goal with this project is to show you guys that even a short girl with a small shed-shop can make big, cool things. Can’t wait to wrap this guy up this week and share with you all very soon! 💕 ⁣

  • Learning to weld has been on my bucket list for a long, long time (and you guys have been asking me to learn for a while). So, today I’m spending the day crossing that item off of my list thanks to my friends at @lincolnelectric. 😍
-
At the current moment, I totally suck. But, hoping to be a pro by the end of the day so I can feel confident doing some welding on my big project tomorrow or Monday. Learning new things can be scary, but you never know until you try! Wish me luck! 👊🏼

  • Been getting a lot of questions about what I’m working on, and was going to leave you guys hanging… But that’s no fun! So, here’s a little sneak peek at the status of those two slabs I was working with and the monster project that is taking up my entire workshop! ⁣
-⁣
I am so excited to finish working on this project this week (fingers crossed that it gets done by next weekend 🤞🏼)! ⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
This one has really been a test of my skills and my patience. 😅 Feeling so grateful for all of my friends in this community who have been helping me and giving me advice along the way. 💕⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
I will be working on some new techniques over the next few days and can’t wait to share them with you guys! 💓⁣⁣
