How to add storage and organization with a simple DIY closet system

When we bought our house a couple years ago, it had one of those "dens" that could have been a bedroom if the original owner had requested it from the builder. It had a doorway with no doors, and a closet recess with no closet. Since 4 bedroom homes usually sell for more money, we figured it would be worth the effort to turn the den into an official bedroom.

The first thing we did was to install french doors with a diy transom. Then, we finished the closet wall, and framed in the bi-pass doors. But, then I got lazy, shoved all of our junk inside and forgot about it for over a year. If you slid one of the closet doors open, this is what you would have found.

I've hung some drywall in my day. I got my feet wet when I remodeled our kitchen and added a new pantry, but I learned quite a bit more on our master bathroom remodel. Although I'd much rather be out in the garage putting wood together, I'm a cheapskate and drywall is a pretty straight forward job most DIYers can handle themselves.

How to Make a Gold Leaf Wall Clock

It's good to try new things. I love experimenting with new materials, even if it doesn't always work out. I'd been itching to play around with gold leaf and I finally had a project that was a perfect test.

I have a confession: I am chronically late... to EVERYTHING!

My husband kindly suggested I make myself a wall clock to keep in the bathroom so I can hopefully stay a little more on schedule (nice try babe). I've actually never made a DIY clock yet, so I took him up on his suggestion and decided to incorporate that gold leaf strategy.

DIY Quirky Wood Block Game

How to make a simple Quirky wood block game using scrap wood and a POTATO

I've told you guys before about my grandpa. He was a woodworker and made the most beautiful things. One of my favorite projects of his were these little wooden tic-tac-toe boards he made for all of his grand kids. I still have my set and one I stole from a sibling. 

There is something so nostalgic and sweet about handmade games. Paper pieces and store bought kits just don't last. That was the motivation when I made simple Mancala game boards for Christmas gifts last year and a desktop football goal for Father's Day the year before that. So, today I'm back making another DIY wooden game, this time for my twin boys.

Got scrap? Who doesn't, right? If you have built more than one or two projects, you probably have some wood scraps lying around. So when Jen Woodhouse asked if I'd like to take part in the Scrap Wood Challenge with 17 other maker friends, I jumped on it! (Remember the One Board Challenge table from a couple years ago?) Here is the only rule: 

- You can build whatever you want, but can only use scrap wood. No new lumber can be purchased, but fasteners, paint, and that kind of stuff are okay.

Happy belated Father's Day to all you dads out there! Odds are, several of you scored a Home Depot gift card from someone who loves you. It's a pretty solid gift idea. I don't know about you, but Home Depot credit is as good as cash to me. It's gonna get spent. 

The best news is, all the Father's Day sales are still going on, so that gift card can go even further. I put together a list of my favorite tools and gadgets, all of which are available either online or in store. So keep scrolling to see what I think you should spend your Home Depot giftcards on.

Are you a music buff? I always have music on, especially when I'm driving or at home. I finally got a record player a few months ago, and have been slowly building up my vinyl collection. The player I have is inexpensive and came with small built-in speakers. They were TERRIBLE! I ended up plugging in a separate portable speaker every time I wanted to listen to an album. I really wanted a dedicated console table or cabinet where I could hook up my record player, have some storage, and hide a pair of bluetooth speakers. 

Everyone loves music. Why don't we have furniture with built-in speakers anymore?

I know it's not officially summer yet, but it feels like it here in Arizona already. You would think with all the planter projects I've built in the past, I would have a green thumb. Yeah... not so much. I am actually a serial plant killer, but for some reason I am determined to keep trying.

I was walking around my local Home Depot a couple weeks ago and I made a freaking awesome discovery! Apparently, my location has started carrying 3/4" thick, S4S Walnut!!! S4S stands for Surfaced on 4 Sides. That means the boards are already smooth, straight, and ready to work with. You don't have to have a planer or special equipment to be able to create something with my very favorite hardwood.

You're probably thinking "I'm a woodworker. I don't need wrenches." False. Whether it's tightening carriage bolts on table legs, or driving lag screws, I've often found myself needing a wrench or two to get the job done. I recently was sent the new Husky Universal Combination Wrench sets and they motivated me to up my wrench game.

This is a good one guys! A little while back my friend Bethany from Reality Daydream asked a bunch of bloggers of YouTubers if we wanted to participate in a Wood Wall Art Challenge. Um, heck yes! I've got some creative friends and some of my favorite projects I've ever made came from a collaborative challenge. Like my three leg, One Board End Table and my Wood and Acrylic Bathroom Shelf

We're getting close to finally finishing the bathroom friends. Most of the big stuff is out of the way. In my "Part 1" blog post I showed the floor plan and identified the walls that we were planing to move. Last week I shared my custom tile shower and today I'm moving to the other side of the room - the water closet.

So where did we leave off friends? I think the last time I talked to you about Modern Master Bath remodel I was sharing the building plans for my double vanity.  The bathroom remodel is SO close to being done! All that is left is to build the linen closet and touch up paint. The showstopper of the whole makeover is the new custom tile shower we installed and that's what I'm focusing on today.

I have a problem friends. 

My shop (A.K.A. my half of the two car garage), is a disaster. I desperately need more storage and organization. My husband is a maker too (cars, not wood) and we are just running out of room! I've been dying for a mobile workbench that I can assemble my furniture on but I had no idea where I would store it. I started brainstorming and decided I could create a folding or collapsible workbench that could be stashed out of the way when not in use.

Hi friends! Has this year been kicking your butt too? I had the hardest time getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I'm guessing I'm not alone. It's just so hard to get motivated when it's cold and dark outside. 

To get me by, I've been focusing on smaller, indoor projects. I love smaller builds! Sometimes you don't want to spend days in the garage. It's fun to have something you can bust out in a single afternoon and hang it up right away.

I have been up to my eyeballs in a bathroom remodel friends! Like most big projects, it's taken us much longer than expected. Back in October I shared the before photos and my design inspiration. My husband and I have done all the work ourselves, which means we've had to squeeze work hours into nights and weekends.
