Project Panel How-to Project: Plywood Headboard

This month we took a look into the bedroom space and saw just how fun and easy it can be to build your own headboard. There are so many different styles, from tufted Victorian to Scandi, we channeled that inspiration and built our own! Using three 2' x 4' DimensionsTM project panels (bonus: they fit in the car!), we painted on a modern geometrical pattern and completed the whole project for around $70!

Rest easy with a trendy new DIY headboard

Fall breezed by, it's actually snowing where we are, and we're suddenly feeling the desire to cozy in – which most likely (alright, for sure) means indulging in the fine art of napping. With that motivation as inspiration, we're exploring the best DIY headboard projects out there today...

DIY Modern Clock

Project Panel How-to Project: Zen Clock

We recently spent time talking about how easy and fun it can be to follow the latest DIY clock trends. Clock kits are readily available at most hardware and craft stores, but as always, when we took a look at how clever DIYers are using them, we were delighted and intrigued by the sheer variety. From picnic supplies to concrete, turns out almost anything can be turned into a clock at a very affordable price, with very little time and very simple tools.

Tick, Tock, Trendy Clocks

As tempting as it is to go for the easy Halloween blog in October, we thought, heck, those skeletons will just get shoved back in the closet in a couple weeks! How about upping your "fall back" game with a trendy, fun, handcrafted clock instead? Just in time to say bye-bye to Daylight Saving Time.

Craft Panel How-to Project: Adorable Fall Décor Sign

Two weeks ago we felt the first chill of autumn blow through our windows, inspiring us to look at ways people are preparing to welcome it. We saw all kinds of décor, from mums to Mason jars, so we wanted to make a budget-friendly project (under $25) that would celebrate fall too.

Sorry to mention it, but summer is fading. The days are getting shorter and the nights are growing cooler. But this time of year also never fails to inspire and invigorate our creativity. So while fall may mean flannels and football, for us DIYers, it's about the excitement of new seasonal décor too!

Dartboard Case

Charred Project Boards How-to Project: Dartboard Cabinet

A few weeks back, we introduced you to the world of #trendiy outdoor games. We looked at some old favorites, like horseshoes and Cornhole, and met some new friends with Sauce Toss and Crokinole. So even though summer is winding down, we're not ready to let the fun end! Instead, we'll show you how we built this dartboard cabinet in no time for only around $80!

Summer = Family, friends and outdoor games!

Summertime is still going strong, which means there's still plenty of time left to enjoy outdoor gatherings with family and friends. And that means it's still the perfect time for yard games – most you can even build yourself!

diy moss wall art

Craft Panel How-To Project: Living Wall Moss Art

Two weeks back we looked at new ways live foliage is being incorporated into homes. DIYers are applying succulents, moss and more to walls, ceilings and floors, making us (we just have to say it...) green with envy and itching to make our own! We'll show you how we created our moss wall art with nothing but a 4-pack of plywood craft panels, moss and hot glue.
