Handmade Checkerboard

My kids love Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys.  They are such high quality toys and we always seem to ask for them for gifts.  Each of the sets come with a wood crate that stores the set.  While I love the crates they really could use a top on them in order to make it into our playroom (I am not a fan of pieces everywhere). So what has happened over the years of receiving Melissa & Doug toys is we have amassed a collection of these wood crates.

How to Make a Bathroom Cabinet {Roadkill Rescue}

This was my last Roadkill Rescue challenge on Indy Style, the local lifestyle show I have been a pat of for the last 18 months.  Viewer Jennifer submitted this worn out cabinet/dresser combo she had taking up room in her garage for a year and a half.  So I literally took the entire thing apart and pretty much just used the wood to create a standing bathroom cabinet.
