You can see how I built the table in a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL0kh2faVpk My sister-in-law and her husband recently moved back home from out of town.

Rustic Wall Sconces

03-29-2015 06:35 PM by Chris McDowell | 6 comments »

My wife follows shanty-2-chic.com and saw some wall sconces on the website. She decided that she wanted to make them so she asked me to help. I cut the wood and installed keyhole hangers. She did everything else. The vases are old spaghetti jars spray painted gold. The foliage is from Walmart. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fatBOlTorD8 Here is the project my wife saw on shanty-2-chic: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2015/03/diy-wine-bottle-wall-sconce.html

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

02-05-2011 08:36 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
