DIY Dress Up Station

One of my best friends asked me to build her little girl a dress up rack to store all her dress up clothes and accessories. Here is the finished cart!
Here is a video on the build process:

DIY Firewood Storage

I have a pretty large hearth on my fire place, and I typically just stack my chopped fire wood on it and call it a day. However, I have really been wanting to make something that would be a little more prettier so I decided to sketch something up to build. 
I wanted something that would hold a lot of wood, but I also just didn't want to throw together a big rectangle. I also wanted a spot to store my fire starters as well as separation between my kinlin and larger wood. This is what I came up with!
I built in two shelves on the sides that are wide enough to hold 13 starter bricks each, and the two dividers you see allow me to put the bigger stuff in the middle with the smaller stuff on the outside.

DIY Rolling Shop Stool

Last year, for my husband's birthday I made him this tool caddy to help keep his tools organized while working on cars and his wheelers. This year I tried my hand at making him a shop stool. He has the typical shop stool already that has a gas lift on it, but I often find him sitting on the garage floor because the stool doesn't get him as low as he needs to be. So I made him this creeper type stool that is really low to the ground but still rolls around.

DIY Hanging Lanterns

Even before I had my framed mirror complete, I knew I would build something to go on either side of it. However, I thought I would do a nice wall mounted planter. I played around with that idea for a week or two and couldn’t come up with anything I loved (everything I would have loved would require me to have a lathe) so instead I got the idea to make some lanterns. Check out how they came out!
You can watch a video of me building them here:

DIY End Table

Even though I just built a table for my entryway, I decided to build a second one for this corner because it was just too bare for my liking. Here is how it turned out!

DIY Fall Pumpkin Decorations

Today I did a fall themed collaboration with Linn over at Darbin Orvar. We both would really like to see more women get their hands on some tools, so we each put together a simple tutorial on a fall decoration to give you some inspiration for picking up a tool and making something. I made the pumpkin decorations below. They are extremely simple and don't require a lot of tools. Linn made a beautiful, rustic Fall sign from fence wood; you can check it out here.

DIY Window Pane Mirror

Still working on decorating my entry way, I remembered that I had two giant mirrors that I purchased at a garage sale about three years ago for $5. I figured it was about time to put one of them to use, so I turned it into this!
Oh my goodness....I really really love this. If you want to turn a mirror into a window look-a-like then  I suggest looking around on Google to see different design ideas. The ones that really caught my eye were the arched mirrors, but since I had a square one laying around I made my arch fake. Last week was faux drawers, this week it's a faux arch....I don't want to hear it. : )
