How To Make A Buffet - That Holds A Mini-Fridge

When my client told me that she wanted a buffet (sideboard) that could hold a mini fridge, I knew this was going to be a fun project!  She is transforming her formal living room space into a New Orleans themed pub room. So fun right!?! And then I thought that this would be great build to partner with Kreg and share the plans I designed on their DIY project plan site BuildSomething.com, so you could make one for yourself! But before you go there let me walk you thru some of the design process and new techniques I used on this build. 

Shiplap Hall Tree Bench Plans - UPDATED 1.8.19

Well the time has finally come! I am so excited to share with you plans to build your very own Shiplap Hall Tree Bench. This has been a long time coming and some of you have been very patient. Thank you for that!

So since this is my very first set of full printable plans they might not be perfect. So once you have downloaded them and had a chance to look them over I would love any feedback you. More detail, too much detail, etc. 

DIY Over-The-Toilet Shelf

Living in a 1971 ranch house means we have small bathrooms. Bathrooms that lack storage! So when my friends at Kreg asked me to partner on a project for BuildSomething.com, I was excited to design and build a piece that would help us with our storage problem. Since we are limited on space I decided adding a shelf over-the-toilet would be the best bet. I wanted a piece that would have space to add some personality to the bathroom, but also functional to hide some everyday essentials. What I came up with was super easy build and it only took two (2) 1x6's and some scrap 1/4" plywood to create! I am on a Knotty Alder kick lately so I actually milled some scrap Knotty Alder down to the same size as 1x6's to make mine out of. 

WiLd Wine Bar

Every piece in the Wild Collection is built with mostly 2x6's. I designed the collection this way because I believe that everyone deserves awesome furniture in their home. And building out of 2x6's is an affordable way to make sure everyone can.

Chunky 4x4 Console

Howdy everybody!!!

You'll never guess what I got to do!?! I got to team up with the AWESOME Jen Woodhouse and be the first to build one of her plans! So, what did I get to build..... the Awesome Chunky 4x4 Console. This thing is beefy. It is a piece that will make a statement in any room and will last forever!

Build A Farmhouse Table - The AWESOME Way!

I love making dining tables because it is the piece of furniture that a family is going to use everyday together. They are going to make memories there. So I make my tables sturdy and durable to last a lifetime with the family. I like rustic finishes that only get better with time. One of my favorite builds and best sellers is a farmhouse table. There are so many different ways to build a farmhouse table. You can have straight legs, X legs, or turned legs. My favorite are turned legs for a farmhouse table. They add that perfect amount of curvy goodness to the table. I also like that the legs don't get in the way of the chairs, meaning leg room for everyone!!!

Upcycled Modern Farmhouse Tables

Okay, so as promised another #tbt post!!!! This is actually a post that I started a long time ago and never finished. It has some really good info on refinishing for that distressed farmhouse finish. Hope you enjoy!

I snagged these cool looking tables from a Facebook group that sells things for only $15 each. I loved that they had wood and metal. Two of my favorite things!

Dog Bowl Stand With Storage

Howdy! For #tbt (Throwback Thursday) I am going to start posting about my previous builds. To start with I am going to give you my plans to create your very own 3 Dog Bowl Stand with Storage. This could even be for a small trunk without the holes! My clients were looking for a solution to help keep their dog food and bowls in order in their AWESOME Corona themed patio. I love how this project turned out and think it would be so fun to give some character to your dog bowls. Dog furniture should look good to! Now to put this on the list to make for #AwesomeOscar.
