Christmas Tree Box Stand

I build this Christmas Tree Box Stand based on a design that I saw at IKEA. It was really simple to create and I love the end result! I can use it throughout the year and it would look great in any room!

Faux Brick Wall with German Schmear

I was a little nervous about this project and had an idea of how I wanted it to look. I think the hardest part was using the jigsaw to account for outlets and the window seal. I used compound joint to create the texture. Once it dried, I was indecisive as to rather or not I wanted to add paint because I loved the look; however, it was too white and had yellow undertones. I decided to apply gray paint but it took away the texture so I added lite coats of joint compound in spots so the gray could peek through. I absolutely love home it turned out!

Photo/Memory Wall

We created a Photo/Memory wall in my teenage granddaughter's room. It was really easy to create but a little time consuming. Initially, I was skeptical of applying photos to the wall due to the potential damage. However, we compromised by using plywood. See below video for details.

Superhero House

I made this Superhero house for my grandson's 6th birthday. I wanted to make something special for him, plus he has been asking me for a house for over a year. The pure joy on his face and the excitement in his voice made it worth it! His sister is super excited too because now she doesn't have to worry about him and his superheroes in her doll house anymore.

Floating Bookshelf

A floating bookshelf with books instantly enhanced the look of this room. This bookshelf gives the children the flexibility to easily find the books they need for reading. I created this reading area so the children can see and easily reach for books. Hopefully, it will create an instant nudge that will make them want to read every day!

White Platform Bed - Queen

I love how the bed turned out. It occupies the space nicely, without being too much (or too bulky). It adds a great effect to the room. This was a very simple build and is a project that can be completed in a day.
