DIY Projects

Ready for a fun new project? There is something very rewarding about making your own handmade decor. The best compliment I think I’ve ever had was being asked where I get the handles for my trays. (I make them myself and I show you how to make them too!). Have a look through my ever-expanding collection of DIY projects. In these tutorials I share years of experience with you so you can make simple projects that look fancy. I’ll show you tricks to make it look like you have mad woodworking skills. My style isn’t in the fine woodworking category, but it is definitely creative. Think of these tutorials as a jumping off point for you to run with a design and make it your own for gifts, to sell or just for yourself.

If you make something, please let me know – I would love to see it! And if you want to keep up with the latest tutorials, please subscribe to my newsletter below. I’ll never share your information.
