One project I’ve had on my bucket list for the longest time has been a DIY wood cutting board. But, I’ve been wanting to build it in a way that is approachable to most people with a few power tools. So, along with the help of my incredible friends at DAP Products, I created not one, but TWO cutting boards with three power tools and no planer!
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!
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!
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)!
