After a few months of working full time from home and staring at the custom fireplace I built every day, I decided it’s time to add a mantel! Talk about perfect timing for the holiday season, am I right? This build took me ONE WEEKEND to do and cost me under $100!
Hi, friends! Things have been a little hectic recently (I shared a bunch about this on YouTube), but I am SO happy to be back in action with a fun one-day friend-filled project! Last time we hung out on the blog, I had just wrapped up my small dining room makeover… and, this time, we’re focusing on the custom dining bench my friend Chris from Cow Dog Craft Works helped me build for the space! This was such a fun collab and I am so excited to share all of the details with you! So, let’s get started!
10 months ago we closed on our FIRST HOUSE (how has it been 10 months already!?) and since the day we closed, I have been renovating non-stop! That being said, today I am SO excited to be able to share my DIY small dining room makeover! This project was a HUGE undertaking and a total labor of love, and I cannot wait to show you the before and after. So, let’s get started!
If you follow me on social media, you may know that I recently traveled north to Canada to visit my amazingly creative friend, DIY Danie! Danie has the most ADORABLE house and has been working on making over her backyard. So, I got on a plane to help her build a new DIY outdoor dining table in ONE DAY! We also created an outdoor coffee table in a day as well (so, be sure to check that out on her channel here)! Build are so much faster when you have a buddy!
