Rustic Chunky Leg Coffee Table

Hey Guys, for all of you who have loved the look of the Rustic X Coffee table, but did not have the room for the length of it, here is a great alternative, the Rustic Chunky Leg Coffee Table. I have taken the table and turned it a 3 Foot square table. Now, with it being square, the 2” x 4” legs would not look right. Instead, 4” x 4” boards were used as the legs to keep the table looking balanced.

 

Make sure you read through the instructions and look over the plans fully before you start your project. Check out the “Before You Start” page for more on tool information, tips & tricks. Always stay safe and wear all safety protection. It is always best to make your cuts as you go and as they say, measure twice and cut once.

The Step-by-Step

The Base

First, pocket holes are needed on both ends of each 2 “ x 4” @ 27 ¾” Support Board

Use 2 ½” Pocket Screws & Wood Glue to attach these boards to the Legs. The top supports will be flush with the top of the Legs, the bottom support will be 2 ¼” from the bottom of the leg.

 

Next, we need to assemble the bottom shelf.

Drill ¾” Pocket holes on all sides of the boards. These will be used to attach the shelf together as well as to attach the shelf to the supports.

Use 1 ¼” Pocket screws & Wood Glue to assemble the boards together & attach to the supports.

 

Now its time to attach the X’s. Use 2 “ Wood screws and wood Glue to attach through the supports and use 2 ½” Pocket screws to attach the smaller pieces to the long Piece. Start with the Long piece, and then add the 2 smaller pieces.

TIP: To Cut these pieces, its best to first lay out the Full piece and mark off your lines. Cut & Install that piece first. For the smaller pieces, do the same thing. Mark and cut one full piece then place in behind the other and mark off the other cuts your are going to need. These will be around 40 Degrees

 

The Top

 Drill 1 ½” pocket holes in the 5 boards for the top, then use 2 ½” Pocket screws & Wood Glue to attach the boards together.

Assemble & Finish

Spray paint the 4 corner brackets and the co-ordinating Screws

While the brackets are drying, it’s time to finish the table. Use the stainable wood filler to fill in any pocket holes, the gaps in the top and any other imperfections.

 Once the wood filler has dried, give everything a good sand.

 Next, paint, stain and polyurethane depending on how you decided the table will look.

Note: remember if you will be painting the base of the table, do not forget to prime first.

 

Use 2 “ Wood Screws through the top support to attach the top.

 Finally attach the 4 corner brackets to the table top edge with the screws you also painted.

Wallmount Bottle Opener for under $20

Hey All, With Father’s Day this past weekend, it was a pretty last minute gift idea that we decided on. We only had a week to have it completed (which we successfully did, longest was waiting for delivery of the bottle opener), we made two things. The first being in this post, the other, a custom end table/magazine rack will be posted later. This project a Wallmount Bottle Opener, is super quick and easy to build and can be done with scrap that you have lying around. If you do not have any scrap, with buying the bottle openers, materials are under $15. I haven’t done any sayings on it yet, as I’m letting my husband choose which one he wants. When that gets completed, I will put an updated photo up of it.

Rustic Mason Jar Hanging Candle Holder

Hey All,
I hope you all had a good May 2-4 weekend, sadly the weather here wasn’t too great. However, it did give me a chance to work on this next project. Here is another fun little how to for a decoration that I have used in my home, a rustic mason jar hanging candle holder. This project is similar to the Rustic Wall Hung Milk Bottle Flower Vase that I did a while back. The longest amount of time it takes for this project is truly just the drying time, which has several stages. So this can even be a project that you do in between working on other projects

Make sure you read through the instructions and look over the plans fully before you start your project. Check out the “Before You Start” page for more on tool information, tips & tricks.

Rustic X Coffee Table

Hey All,

My sister-in-law just moved into a new place and decided in order to make the place more to her style, she’s having me build some of her furniture. The first piece she decided on was a coffee table. However, down the road she’ll be having other pieces built in the same look, i.e. bookcase, console table, etc.

After searching on Pinterest for ideas she decided on one in particular she loved. The Rustic X Coffee Table found on Ana White. Its actually part of the line I was looking at eventually building for myself, so I definitely enjoyed doing this build.

I did make a few small changes. On Ana White’s plans it called for a 1″ x 12″ x 8′ board to be used for the bottom shelf. In Canada, when you do manage to find that size, its pretty expensive. I ended up using 1″ x 6″ x 8′ boards instead, which were a fraction of the cost. However, doing it this way had me adjust the width of the base of the table slightly, but not a big deal in the long run.

TABLE BASE

First, we are going to build the two sides to this table using the 2″ x 4″ x 16.5″ and the 2″ x 2″ x 41″ boards. 

A pocket hole must be drilled in each of of the 2″ x 2″ x 41″ boards, then use 2 1/2″ pocket screws to attach them. The bottom 2″ x 2″ will be 2 1/4″ up from the floor

From there we have to attach the end trim/supports to connect these sides together using the 2″ x 4″ x 21″ boards. 

Both of these boards will have 2 pocket holes on each end. Again, use 2 1/2″ pocket screws to attach.

 

For me, the bottom shelf of this table consists of 4 – 1” x 6” boards cut to 41”. Use your Kreg Jig to Drill ¾” pocket holes to attach them together with 1 ¼” pocket screws.

You will also need to drill pocket holes around the perimeter of the shelf. This is how the shelf is attached to the frame.

 

 

Constructing the X is where it can get a bit more complicated. Since I used 1” x 6” opposed to the 1” x 12” boards from Ana White’s Plans, the width of my table base changed. Therefore changing the angles and lengths of the 2” x 2” boards used to make the X.

I started with the Long piece of the X. Since the width decreased I knew that the angle was going to slightly as well. Instead of cutting the one end at 60 Degrees, I cut it to 58.5 Degrees. From there I used the actually piece and the table frame to measure out the length that piece was going to be. I also cut that end at 58.5 degrees.

I did the same thing for the small components of the X. I cut the one end to 58.5 and laid it out. The other end, butting up against the long piece was cut down to just short of 30 Degrees. Attach these boards using 2 ½” screws.

 NOTE: Before attach the X to the table base, I gave the bottom shelf and each individual component of the X a very good sand. This made it easier, as it would be very hard to sand when the X is attached.

 

THE TOP

Now comes the time to put the top together using the 5 – 2” x 8” @ 52” boards.

 Drill 1 ½” pocket holes in the boards and attach them using 2 ½” pocket screws & Wood Glue.

 Before I attached the top to the base, I gave a 4” width perimeter of the bottom side of the top a good sand. Again, it was easier to do this now than when the top is attached to the frame. Use 2 ½” Wood Screws to attach the top by going from the underside through the 2” x 2” and 2” x 4” trims/supports.

 

Now that the table is constructed it comes down to finishing it. Use your Stainable wood filler to fill any pocket holes. I also used it to fill in the gaps between the boards for my top so there is nowhere to guck to collect.

Once the wood filler has dried, its time to give it a really good sand, first with 120 Grit and then 220 also for the top.

Vacuum and wipe the table down to remove any dust before you stain & seal with polyurethane. I always do 2 coats of the polyurethane, especially on table tops as it gives that extra protection.

 

Now, once the Polyurethane has fully dried, if you are going put the metal edging on like I did, you only have a few steps to go.

Spray paint the brackets and the screws Matte Black. Once fully dried, apply a second coat, let dry.

Align and drill pilot holes before screwing the brackets in place.

Curbside Cabinet Find – Refinished

A month ago, on one of our nightly dog walks we stumbled across a nice curbside find – a Cabinet in good condition that just needed to be  refinished. As you can tell though, it sat in our garage for a month until I could truly decide on what I wanted to do with it. I’d say that making that decision was the hardest part of doing this this project.

I was all set to go once I had picked my cabinet colour (the same colour that I ended up paint my 2 accent walls)

Make sure you read through the instructions and look over the plans fully before you start your project. Check out the “Before You Start” page for more on tool information, tips & tricks. Always stay safe and wear all safety protection. It is always best to make your cuts as you go and as they say, measure twice and cut once.

Materials  I Needed

Steps to Refinish the Cabinet

  1. First I took off the hardware, removed the drawers, unscrewed the hutch.
    20161006_194316
  2. Next I took of the back panel of the hutch. I used the rubber mallet because it would be the easiest to ensure that I do not damage the panel
  3. I sanded everything down enough to get the top clear coat to allow the paint to stick.
    20161005_195150
  4. The top and the back panel I sanded all the existing stain off in order to be able to re-stain the cabinet.
  5. I put the coat of stain on the top and back panel, allowing it to sit before I wiped off the excess with a paper towel.
    20161006_194311
  6. I painted the cabinet, and hutch, making sure to get all the visible spots. However, since I was going for a more distressed look, I allowed some of my brush strokes to show by using a lot of paint for coverage.
  7. Once the paint had died, I used a fine coarse sandpaper on the edges and creases of the cabinet. I did this because it allows the old colour to come through the paint making it more distressed.
    20161007_082120
  8. The next thing to do it to put the back panel back on the hutch using the finishing nail gun.
  9. Lastly, it was time to reassemble the cabinet. I put the drawers back in the cabinet with the new hardware and then re-screwed in the hutch to the cabinet.

My end result came out better than I had hoped, which was a great feeling. I was able to take something I had found and give it a new and refreshing look for such a minimal cost.

Rustic Wallhung Milk Bottle Flower Vase

 Rustic Wallhung Milk Bottle Flower Vase

Materials Needed:

  • A Piece of scrap wood. I used an extra piece of a pine board from another project that I had done. If you don’t have any scrap wood at home, there are two things you can do:  If you feel up to it, go out for a drive to a larger store or factory (i.e. Walmart, a Bathroom Supply Store) and grab a skid. You will want to look for one where the slates are larger in width, at least 5 to 6 inches wide. You will just have to take the skid apart at home. A hammer is usually enough to do it. If you think this is too much for now, I would then suggest buying a piece of pine from the project wood section of your local hardware store.  1×5 or 1×6 should work in this case, and just buy the length according to how many you want to make.
  • Dark Stain
  • Spray Paint – You need to decide on the colour you want to do. In this case I used the Rustoleum Painter’s Touch Satin Heirloom Whitw
  • Sandpaper, I suggest using 100 grit
  •  Milk bottle – can purchase decorative ones at Craft Stores or do some searching online to find the great deals
  •  Adjustable Metal Hose Clamp –
  • Copper tube strap & Small screws
  • Picture hanger

Tools Needed:

54925d4f86df17dc1e4b17e6777bc986Saw to cut the boards to length

00001938Sponge Paint Brush
imgresScrew Driver –  Depending on what screw head it is for the copper tube strapping
imgres-1Hammer – A regular hammer will be fine, however I work enough with small nails that I purchased a Tack hammer. It is easier to control with small finishing nails.

images-1Pencil

imgres-1Safety Glasses

images-2Tape Measure

imgresRubber gloves or work gloves  – so you don’t stain or paint your hands

 

Directions:

1. First cut the boards to the size that you want them to be. I preferred to make the boards just long enough that there is board showing below and to the sides of the Milk Jug and that the flowers reach the top of the board. For me that was 5″ wide by 12″ long.

2. Now you need to stain the front and the edges of the board, then let it dry.

3. Once the stain has dried, you are going to use the spray paint to cover over the stain. Give this some time to dry.

4. Taking the sandpaper, start removing the paint in areas to make it look distressed. I focus mainly on the edges and a few spots through the rest of the board making the stain show through. You will want some areas to have more stain visible than others

5. Time to layout the placement of the bottle. Place the clamp over the neck of the bottle, do not fully tighten. When you have determined where you think will be a good placement place the strap there and mark it off.

6. Attach the picture hanger to the back of the board using the hammer to lightly tap the finish nails in place. (WARNING: Be careful, these nails tend to bend very easy, which is where the tack hammer if you have one comes in handy)

7. Now its time to use the strap to hold the clamp to the board. Line it up with here you earlier marked off and screw it to the board.

8. Put the strap around the bottle neck again, but this time tighten it.

All done! What’s nice about this project is that you can constantly change the flowers based upon what time of year.

Tip: These are a great gift idea also!

Wine Cork Pumpkins DIY

Wine Cork Pumpkins

Completion Time: 1-2 Hours depending on drying times

Materials Needed:

  • Wine Corks of the same size – depending on the size of the pumpkins you are doing, it will determine how many corks in total are needed. For my pumpkins, one of the pumpkins needed 25 corks and the other needed 38 for a grand total of 63 wine corks.
  • Green Felt – My local craft store sells it in sheets that are 2’x2′. I was able to use just one sheet for doing 2 pumpkins.
  • Orange Paint – for this project I bought “Pumpkin Orange”, which  was definitely an easy find this time of the year
  • Twine – you don’t need much, just a small piece

Tools Needed

imgresHot Glue Gun
pair_of_scissors_with_black_handle_2015-06-07Scissors
imagesPaint brush

How To:

1. The first thing you do is determine the layout for the corks based on the size you are going to want them to be.
For my larger pumpkin I did the rows in the following order:

  1. 4 Corks
  2. 5 Corks
  3. 6 Corks
  4. 7 Corks
  5. 6 Corks
  6. 5 Corks
  7. 4 Corks

For the smaller pumpkin, I did the same order however only going to maximum 6 corks. The rows were in this order:

  1. 4 Corks
  2. 5 Corks
  3. 6 Corks
  4. 5 Corks
  5. 4 Corks

2. Now that you have determined your layout you are going to start building your first pumpkin. Hot glue gun the corks together row by row. 

3. When you have finished glueing the rows, you will use the last cork to make the stem on the top.

3. Once the glue has dried, paint the front of the corks orange.

4. While the paint is drying, you are going to make the leaves. First draw the leaf on the felt, and use it as the template for cutting. When you have all your leaves cut, and the paint has dried you are going to hot glue the leaves to the pumpkin near the stem.

5. Last step is to take the twine and hot glue it to make them look like vines over the leaves.

You are now done this fun fall DIY craft!

Decorative 2×4 Wood Block Pumpkins

Decorative 2×4 Wood Block Pumpkins
Project Time: 1 to 2 hours, depending on drying time.

Materials Needed:

  • 2″x4″ board- If you have any scrap pieces left over just use those, otherwise all you will need is 1 – 2″x4″x8′ board, and you will have plenty left over for other projects
  • Twine
  • Decorative Fall leaves – Can be purchased at Dollar Stores
  • A Decent Size Stick for the Stems
  • Metal Wire (Galvanized steel wire from local hardware store)
  • A thin piece of wood for the sign (I used a wood shim and cut it to size)
  • Orange Paint
  • Brown Paint
  • White Paint

Tools Needed:

54925d4f86df17dc1e4b17e6777bc986Circular Saw
imgresHot Glue Gun
imagesPaint Brushes
imgres-1Safety Glasses
images-1Pencil
images-2Measuring Tape
imgres-2Drill
images-3Spade Bit (size determined by the diameter of the stick for the stems)

How to:

1. The first thing you want to do is determine the sizes you want the Pumpkins to be. I recommend if they are going to be going on a table or mantle to do them at 8inches, 10inches and 12inches. This gives you the nice tiered look for arranging them and keeps them where they won’t be at an awkward height.

2. Measure and mark the 2x4s then using the circular saw cut the 2x4s to the desired size.

3. Drill a hole slightly larger then the stick in the top of each of the 2x4s about 1″ Deep using the spade bit

4. Paint all of the 2x4s orange and let them dry.

5. Once the orange paint has dried, add some water to a small bit of brown paint. You are going to use this to add depth to the pumpkins and give them a more rustic look. However, you don’t want to cover the whole thing in the watered down brown paint. Concentrate mainly on the edges of the 2x4s and then do a light coating in areas in the middle. All this essentially does is darken the orange in a more rustic manor. Let this dry. Repeat this step if you feel it needs more.

6. Once the 2x4s are dry, heat up your hot glue gun. You’re now going to glue the stems in. Add some glue into the predrilled hole and insert the stick. Let it dry.

7. It’s now time to decorate! Hot glue on some of the leaves and curl the wire to account for the vines.

8. Final Touches. Cut your wood piece down to size. I made my piece the size of a credit card.   Write  “Pumpkin Patch” with the white paint and then hot glue the twine to the top two corners. This sign will just hang over one of the stems on the pumpkin or hot glue it to the edge . I glued it on the smallest which is at the front of my tier.

Guess what, You’re all done! Time to set them up and admire what you just did.

**This project can also be done using 2″ x 8″ boards if you want to have them sitting on the floor. In this case just determine the height you want them to be. These are great for adding a nice touch to your porch or a corner of your front entrance.

Most of all I hope you enjoyed making these, check back for more fun DIY projects!
