This custom TV stand was planned with two goals in mind:
1. Hide all the tech including cables and cords
2. Provide storage for all the things previously stored in the coffee table
This build does both, plus it reduces the light from the tech "on" lights! That's a bonus for anyone who has ever spent the night in someone's home office!
Over the last few months, Steph has been building miniature rooms from various kits. She is enjoying it so much that she has slowly been adding miniature tools in which to make the builds a little easier.
With all those new tools, she needed an efficient way to organize and store them.
She created a simple three box caddy that is easy to use and move around. Although this is for her miniature supplies, it can be customized for whatever hobby or craft is your passion!
We've made several DIY projects based on inspiration from trips to Walt Disney World over the years. But for now, to get our theme park fix without an actual visit, we have been watching videos from a number of theme park content creators.
Recently, one of those YouTubers posted a room tour of the Universal Studios Florida Hard Rock Hotel. In it, we spotted the most intriguing wall art made out of drumsticks. We decided we needed to recreate it as we had the perfect wall for it to hang!
One of the advantages of doing things yourself is the ability to customize furnishings to fit your home. That's what we recently did when we built this footstool to replace a large coffee table at Steph's house.
Steph adopted a second greyhound, which meant having a second dog bed in the living room. With the two beds and the large coffee table there just wasn't enough room. Steph designed a heavy base ottoman that would better fit the space.
Take a look at her customized piece of furniture.
We rarely label a project quick and easy but we WERE going to label this one as such. BUT, this very simple project was anything but that due to a series of mishaps!
Read along. Have you ever had a project that was just one roadblock after another? Do tell!
