How to Wood Plank a Door

How to Wood Plank a Door

Hi there! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m back again to share another project with ya! It would be safe to say that I really love plank walls (see herehere and here) … so much in fact, that I recently decided to make a wood plank door for our pantry. We’ve been working on our mudroom, so it only made sense to make a new door while we were at it, especially since our pantry is in our mudroom. I must say, I’m completely in love with it! It’s just what our mudroom was missing…

5 Ways to Get This Look: Back Porch Living

Don’t you love this back porch by designer Cindy Mihuc that was recently featured on House of Turquoise?  It’s gorgeous.  Everything on this porch is purposeful, from the porch swing to the storage bucket drink station.  It’s totally possible to make a comfortable, useable outdoor space like this one–even if you don’t have an actual back porch.  Check out the tutorials and ideas I found online to see five ways that you can get this look for less.

DIY Decorative Wooden Arrows from Scrap Wood

DIY Decorative Wooden Arrows from Scrap Wood

Hey there!  It’s Carmel from Our Fifth House, and I’m back today to share a super simple and easy little DIY project.  These decorative, wooden arrows are fun to make and add the perfect amount of whimsy to a gallery wall.  I made them for my daughter’s room, but I think they’d be great in any space!  They’re so quick to whip up you could even create a whole wall of nothing but these fun arrows, which as side note would also be a great way to use up any leftover scrap wood you might have lying around your garage.

DIY Wood Ribbon Storage

Hi there! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m so very excited to be part of the Infarrantly Creative contributor team! What an honor! Right now, my husband and I are working on our home office. We’re giving it a makeover… and definitely adding some organization, which leads me to today’s project. I really like ribbon and I have a habit of collecting it, but the problem was, I didn’t have anywhere to display it. I’d toss it in a basket and then forget about it. I wanted something that would be pretty enough to sit out, and big enough to hold several rolls of ribbon and store a few extra rolls too.

The older I get the more I get into sparkle, glimmer and shine.  I never was a bling girl before.  In fact, truth be told, I was a little bit of a tomboy growing up.  But there is something so feminine about shine and shimmer.  I am noticing the older I get the bigger the earrings, the chunkier the necklaces are and the more I love dolling myself up.  Or maybe it could be hoping the bling will distract from the signs of aging {giggle}.

DIY Scrabble Tiles

Looking for a personalized and inexpensive Christmas gift?  These are so simple and cost effective you can make them for your neighbors or co-workers.  I am a big word nerd and so is my mom.  Growing up, she would kick my tail at Scrabble all the time.  It never made me give up though, and to this day, I love any word game – even though my hubby won’t play with me because he loses.  🙂
