Faux industrial cart coffee crate side table

read

This next year, I plan to ‘upgrade’ a few key pieces of furniture that I’ve made over the years, to give them more of a ‘grown up industrial edge’. Yes. I want my junk to grow up. Just a little. For one, while my pallet wood TV media stand is still standing strong, I’d love to […]

An old sign toolbox side table to store all those remotes

read

It’s been said I don’t ‘do colour’ in my house. And I’d have to agree. Between my monotone’d salvage farmhouse styled bathroom and rustic bedroom, there’s virtually no colour. Well, adding colour is pretty easy AND painless with just a little paint! And I’m happy to say, making this old sign toolbox side table to store […]
