Hey guys! It’s Shelly from Dolen Diaries and I’m back to share my latest obsession!! Faux Succulent picks from Floracraft! Have you seen these yet!?!

Lay the cut base pieces out and begin cutting pallet wood pieces to frame the base. Carefully measure each section of your base to make sure that your frame will fit properly. Start with the outer frame and then work on the inner frame. *Each joint is a 45 degree angle so cut each joint piece at a 22.5 degree angle.

Once everything is cut and laid out start assembling the inner frame.

DIY Farmhouse Style Wood Box

Hello, Crafting Chick friends! I’ve missed you guys! If we haven’t met yet, I’m Shelly from Dolen Diaries where I share my love of all things creative and creating with the ones I love. Today, I’m sharing arguably the easiest {no joke} DIY project you’ll ever do! I’m completely obsessed with this DIY Farmhouse Style Wood Box and you’re going to fall in love, too!

DIY Farmhouse Style Wood Box

Supplies:

  • 1 fence board 1 x 6″ x 6′ {we used reclaimed fencing we found on the side of the road}
  • hammer
  • galvanized roofing nails
  • tape measure
  • pencil
  • carpenters square
  • chop or cordless saw

reclaimed box pieces

Cuts:

  • 4 – 11.25″ {2 sides & 2 bottoms}
  • 2 – 12.75″ {sides}

diy wood box

Take one of the 11.25″ and both of the 12.75″ sides and set them up to be nailed together.

galvanized nails and reclaimed wood

Put two nails in each end of the 11.25″ board.

box sides

Nail one more the 11.25″ boards to the other end of the box to create a frame.

bottom of reclaimed box

Lay the last 11.25″ boards next to each other to create the bottom of the box. Slide the frame over the top of the “bottom”. The bottom will fit really tightly so you can set it up on end.

How much do you love this little farmhouse style wood box!?! I love the rustic personality of reclaimed wood, don’t you!?!

I loved this DIY Farmhouse Style Wood Box so much that I had to have 2 more!! These farmhouse style wood boxes are a must have for the summer! They make for a dreamy country summer chic buffet.

Or a sweet background for a sweet summer photo. They would be darling filled with a mason jar herb garden or even used as a planter. I have a hard time NOT thinking of ways to use them. Hmmm…I may be becoming a crazy farmhouse style box lady.

Planked Art Display Board

Hello Crafting Chicks readers, my name is Shelly Dolen. I blog over at Dolen Diaries where I share my family’s adventures in creativity! Our latest creative adventure was moving into a “new” fixer upper. We have so many projects going on right now that I feel like we are in heaven! One of the bigger projects I am working on is organizing a craft room / office space for me and my husband, Micah, to share. (Yikes I have A LOT of stuff! This process has made me worry that I will soon be featured on one of those hoarders shows!)

After a trip to Ikea we had a desk with two work spaces and some cute modern chairs but no bulletin or display board. I didn’t want it to look or feel like I stepped into Ikea every time I came in here to work so I decided we needed a garage date night to make a Planked Art Display Board to make this room feel more like us!

Planked Art Display Board {Dolen Diaries for The Crafting Chicks}

To make your own Planked Art Display Board you’ll need:

  • 8 wainscot plank paneling pieces 3.5″ x 32″ *you can get a 12 pack at Lowe’s in this exact length
  • 2 1×4 cedar fence boards cut down 2 pieces 34″ & 2 pieces 23″ *we used reclaimed fence boards
  • Picture Wire 6.7 mm x 7.6m
  • 4 eye hooks
  • 2 cable crimps
  • wire cutters
  • wire crimper or pliers
  • air staple gun with 1″ staples or a drill with 1″ screws
  • hand drill with 1/16″ drill bit
  • 2 1″ screws
  • white spray paint

To start, I laid our plank pieces out so I could arrange where I wanted all the different grooves, knots, etc. to land.

Next, I looked at the 1x4s to decide which sides would show. I played around with the frame pieces on top of the planks until I was happy with their arrangement. I preferred the look of the longer frame pieces being on the top and bottom rather than the sides. Then I stacked the planks and frame pieces back up in order from top to bottom and set them aside to give us room to start assembly.

I laid the frame out front side down and Micah clamped the corners together squarely onto the work table. *It’s important to make sure that you are laying your frame out squarely or you’re going to have a wonky finished product.

Once all the corners were securely clamped, I laid out my planks centered on top of the frame face side down.

We used an air stapler to attach the planks all along the edge of the frame. We chose an air stapler for ease but if you don’t have one you could use 1″ screws.

After I had gone all around the perimeter of the planks with staples, Micah added a few extras on the top and bottom corners to give it a little more strength.

Just to make sure it was strong enough to hang and support artwork, he added a staple on each of the frame seams.

Our planked art display was ready for paint!

Planked Art Display {Dolen Diaries for The Crafting Chicks}

Our office color is Repose Grey by Sherwin Williams. I love this color with our white desk and chairs so I thought white would be the perfect color choice for our planked art display as well! After one heavy coat of paint, I could see just a hint of wood here and there. It was just that touch of rustic that we both adore so we decided one coat was enough.

After the paint was dry it was time to add the wires! I figured that two rows of wires would allow for perfect artwork hanging room. To make it easy I lined up our wire path with the grooves in the planks. Micah predrilled the holes for the eye hooks.

The next task was to twist in the eye hooks and I have to say it was tougher than I thought it would be! I started all gung-ho and then made Micah finish because my finger tips were sore. (Girly hands!)

We decided the best way to make the wire as tight as possible was to loop it around each of the eye hooks.

Micah slid a cable crimp onto the wire and clamped a pair of pliers on each end of the wire. We each grabbed a pair of pliers and pulled the wire taunt.

While the wire was held taunt, Micah crimped the cable crimp together.

 

We trimmed the wire ends and repeated the process for the second row of wire.

 

Lastly, we snipped off more wire and secured it to the back of the board for hanging.

I absolutely adore how our DIY Planked Art Display turned out, don’t you!?!

The little ledge on the bottom of the frame is the perfect spot for this vintage reader board letter.

While Micah’s happy with just what we have on the board now, I can’t wait to fill it up with some of the works of art our boys create for us! Would you be a board filler like me or a minimalist like Micah?

Planked Art Display Board {Dolen Diaries for The Crafting Chicks}

Thank you all SO much for letting me share our Planked Art Display Board with you! I’d love it if you would pop by Dolen Diaries to say hi and don’t forget to pin this project for your next garage date night!

Turkey Napkin Holders

Hey Readers! It’s Amanda from The Contractor Chronicles again – here to share a fun little DIY project just perfect for Thanksgiving! Halloween is only a few days away and all the spiders and witches get packed out and out come the turkey’s – for Thanksgiving! When I think about Thanksgiving, I think of my family coming together to give thanks for things we have and to celebrate with a big feast. On the table are always cute centerpieces and to go with those centerpieces I thought it would be fun to make some Turkey Napkin Holders.

Turkey Napkin Holder (32)

These are so simple to make and will look awesome filled with cute napkins on your table all November long! You could even make a couple for gifts!

All you need to make them are a 1×6, some wood glue and some paint!

I cut my 1×6 into three pieces: two at six inches and one at one and a half inches.

Turkey Napkin Holder (1) copy

Next, I used my gorilla glue and glued my 1 1/2” piece onto my 6” piece.

Turkey Napkin Holder (2) copy

Then I nailed them together using Ryobi Airstrike Brad Nailer.

Turkey Napkin Holder (3) copy

When both sides are glued and nailed… you are done nailing.

Next, I stained the napkin holder using Minwax Cherry.

(Note: you may want to stain or paint before you assemble the napkin holder – whatever is easiest for you!)

Turkey Napkin Holder (5) copy

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out a couple of vinyl turkey’s and applied them to both sides of the holder.

I then painted them white!

When everything was dry, I used a sponge sander and sanded down each side and all the edges to give it a worn look – then I sprayed it with a Rustoleum matte clear coat and was done!

Fill it up with your favorite napkins and you are ready for Thanksgiving!

Rustic Olive 2×4 Sofa Table

Hello friends! Amanda here with The Contractor Chronicles and I am back today to share a fun little olive sofa table that is so easy to whip up and would look great anywhere in your home! The only tools you need for this project are a miter saw and a drill!

Rustic Olive 2x4 Sofa Table (11) copy

You can find the plans for this fun little 2×4 sofa table – complete with shopping list, cut list and break down – here!

Spencer and I didn’t have our Kreg Jig yet so we used 3” wood screws and screwed the whole thing together. I was fine with it since I knew we would be painting it and it didn’t matter if I had to use a lot of wood filler.

We followed the simple plans and within an hour had a fun and chunky sofa table built and ready for sanding!

Rustic Olive 2x4 Sofa Table (19) copy

After I had the whole thing sanded down, I used Minwax cherry stain and stained along all the sides and cracks. I did this so when I distressed it you would be able to see stained wood instead of white, clean wood.

Rustic Olive 2x4 Sofa Table (15) copy

Next, I gave the table a quick coat of Rustoluem Heirloom White – once again for the effect I wanted when I started to sand it down.

I used Rustoleum EDEN for the final coats. I love the green! When the table was dry, I used my sander and scuffed it up all over! I love seeing the white and the cherry stained wood show through.

I finished it up with a wax finish and we done!

Until next time!

DIY Wooden Quote Board

_MG_1236 copy

In celebration of the “Muppets Most Wanted” movie, I created a craft with my favorite quote from the ever-so-wise and sweet
Muppets_Most_Wanted=Print=Title_Treatment===Worldwide=4CKermet The Frog!!! There is a new movie coming out with Kermet and the rest of the awesome Muppets crew.   “Muppets Most Wanted is available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD August 12th at Disney.com.”

“Two Frogs! One Pig! Intrigue! Music! Mayhem! Muppets!

Muppets_Most_Wanted=Print=Blu-ray=Beauty_Shot===Worldwide=6_75

(Although this post is sponsored, but my thoughts are entirely my own.)

About the movie:

There’s plenty of fun for the whole family as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal and the entire Muppets gang head out on a world tour. But mayhem follows the Muppets, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper. Now Kermit is behind bars at the mercy of prison warden Nadya (Tina Fey), and the World’s Number One Criminal, Constantine—a dead ringer for Kermit—has taken his place.

As Constantine and his dastardly sidekick Dominic (Ricky Gervais) plot the robbery of the century, they are pursued by Sam Eagle and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell). Will Constantine get away with his nefarious scheme? Will Kermit escape in time to save the day? Packed with dozens of guest cameos, new songs and the most extended, most exclusive scenes not in theaters, Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted is the most hilarious, most wanted Muppet movie ever!”

Onto the Kermet quote and wooden board.  I’m excited about this board because you can put any quote on it and use if for any home decor piece in your house.  I will for sure use this method again for other quotes.  I also love this quote from Kermet!!

Supplies:

-1 package of 18″ wooden shims (just ask someone at Lowe’s or Home Depot) they are wooden pieces that are thicker on one end and thinner on the other.

-2   1″x2″ pieces of wood 20″ long

-wooden screws and way to fasten them, either a screwdriver or power screwdriver

-staple and staple gun

-paper with quote (print out on Word with a font of your liking)

-Elmer’s glue

LET’S BEGIN.

Start by setting up your wooden shims on the two 20″ boards.  Rotate them from skinny end to thick end.

_MG_1223

I love this quote.

_MG_1224

Lay out all your boards so they make sense and are lined up properly.

_MG_1225

Do you see how they vary in thickness from one end to the other?

_MG_1228

Staple the thin end.

_MG_1231

Screw the thick ends into the board beneath it.

_MG_1232

Cut out your quote.  I cut out mine messy on purpose so it matches the style of the project.

_MG_1236

Glue on the quote and there you have it.  You are done.

_MG_1258-2 copy
_MG_1258 I’m really so excited to try this same thing out on may other boards.  So can you.  Maybe while you are doing this, you can go check out the new movie. It come out on Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD August 12th.  Fun for the whole familyPacked with dozens of guest cameos, new songs and the most extended, Most exclusive scenes not seen in theaters.  It’s a perfect for movie night which I love.

HAPPY CRAFTING!!

Easy (One Hour) Serving Tray

Hello Crafting Chicks readers! Amanda here – from The Contractor Chronicles – again to share another fun project and some expertise about using your tools! Today we are going to use 2 tools – our miter box and drill – to make an easy one hour 1×10 serving tray.

Easy 1x10 Serving Tray

Supplies Needed:

1×10
Stain
Spray Paint
Sand Paper
2 3” Cabinet Pulls (for handles)
Paint Tape
Glass Jar

Head on over to Home Depot and pick up a 1×10 – it doesn’t need to be very long because we are going to use our miter box and cut it to about 18” long. I just sort of eyed how long I wanted it and cut it. If your board is too wide for your miter box you can use this trick to cut it.

Easy 1x10 Serving Tray (1) copy

After I cut the wood, I stained it “cherry” by Minwax.

Easy 1x10 Serving Tray (2) copy

After the stain was dry, I used painters tape and tapped off the edges. I did one strip down the side and did two strips on the ends. I knew I was adding handles so I wanted the ends a little bit thicker.

Easy 1x10 Serving Tray (4) copy

I sprayed the middle with Rustoleum Heirloom White.

Easy 1x10 Serving Tray (5) copy

After everything was dry, I used sand paper and roughed it up a bit. I applied a clear varnish over the top of the tray to protect it a little bit.

I used a 3/16 drill bit to drill the holes for the handles and then added them.

And then you are finished!! So easy, right!?

I didn’t want the screws on the bottom to scratch anything so I added felt pads to the bottom.

I wanted to add some character to the serving tray and I am in love with Rustoleum Mirror Effect spray paint – so I sprayed a glass (pickle) jar I had with it and added it to the tray.

DIY Wood Photo Holder

DIY Wood Photo Holder 2.2

Hi again Crafting Chicks friends! It’s Leanne from Organize and Decorate Everything. I’m so happy to be with all of you again. I hope you’re having a terrific Summer.

When I make or purchase something I like to make sure it can fit in at least 3 different areas of my home. There are a few reasons for that: I don’t buy as much stuff if it doesn’t fit my criteria, I like to move things around, I like things with dual purposes. Today I’m sharing how to make a DIY Wood Photo Holder. It can hold photos, cards, recipes, quotes, memos, and so on.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 13

Let’s get started!

Supplies Needed:
Solid Wood Frame
Candlestick or Wood Spindle (I used a candlestick)
Scrapbook Paper (your choice)
Spray Paint (any color)
Clip (from scrapbook supplies)
Skewer (optional)
Cork (optional)
E6000 glue

DIY Wood Photo Holder 12

If you are using a candlestick remove the metal cup. It’s easy to remove by using a knife to pry the edges up. You’ll need to do that to get a flat surface. Paint all the wood pieces. I use spray paint because it’s fast and goes on smooth but acrylic paint works well and you have more colors to choose from.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 11

I used a cork to fill the hole, it’s painted white also. You could also use flower foam or modeling clay. Anything you can fill the hole with and make the surface flat.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 10

I cut the skewer to end 1/2″ below the top of the photo holder. Stick it as far as it will go into the center of the cork, then set aside until you finish the photo board.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 9

Cut a piece of scrap book paper to fit the front of the photo board then apply it to the board with mod podge. I like to use a roller to make sure all the bubbles are out. Let dry 10-15 minutes then apply mod podge to the top to seal the paper. Let it dry about 20 minutes.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 8.1

Add the clip to the front of the board using E6000 glue. Let it dry at least an hour before going on to the next step. I placed the clip a little down on the front of the board. When I make another one I will adhere it as close to the top of the board as possible to make more room for whatever is clipped to the front.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 7

Now it’s time to adhere the board to the candlestick. Use E6000 to the bottom of the board and the back of the skewer to adhere the 2 pieces together. Let dry a few hours and you’re done.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 4.1

I love how it turned out and because of the colors I used it will fit into any room of my house. It’s going to start in the kitchen.

DIY Wood Photo Holder 3.1

It would be perfect for clipping a recipe to while cooking but right now it is holding one of my favorite printables.

Thank you for letting me share a project with you. And thank you Crafting Chicks for having me. I’ll see you all soon!

DIY Easy One Hour Rustic Crate

Hello Crafting Chicks Readers! My name is Amanda and my husband and I blog over at The Contractor Chronicles. We bought a home seven years ago and have started telling our story about our home remodel and sharing our love of tools.

We believe that anyone can use tools and build beautiful things for their homes. We like to share big home projects as well as sharing small projects that you can do in a hour – with the right tools!

Today I am sharing how to build an easy 1-hour rustic crate. This project is a great project if you are just learning to build or learning to use tools.

Materials Needed:
1 1×4
1 1×10
Gorilla Glue
1” staples (or nails)
Paint/Stain
Handles

Tools Needed:
Miter Box
Staple Gun or Hammer
Tape Measure

Use your miter box and cut the 1×10 for your bottom and your ends. The length of the bottom is 16” and the ends are 9”. You can make them bigger or smaller if you would like to – the great thing about DIY is that you can make it how you want too!

Use your 1×4 and cut your sides to be the same length as your bottom piece – so I cut mine to be 16”. You will need four pieces for your sides.

Set up your ends to be about the same width apart as your bottom piece and add your gorilla wood glue to one end. Only apply the glue to one end so you don’t smear it on the other end.

Staple the glued end on.

Glue the other end and then staple it on as well. So you now have a “U” shape – like a bridge.

Now that the bottom and end pieces are glued and stapled you will lay the bottom and end pieces on their side and glue and staple the side pieces on. To do this – you need to apply glue to both ends of the bottom side piece.

You also want to glue the entire bottom side too – then line up the side with the bottom and staple it onto the end pieces.

Go up a couple inches and glue and staple the ends on the top side piece too.

Flip it over and glue and staple the side pieces to the other side as well. You can see that I left about an inch on the top and I love it like that but you can go to the top if you don’t. I like the character it adds.

Now we are into the project about 10 minutes! Sweet right? Now let’s paint it or stain it! I chose to paint this one!

DIY 1 hour rustic crate (12) copy

I used DecoArt Chalk Paint and gave it a coat of Yesteryear. I love this color – it is blueish gray and beautiful! I used my sander and scuffed it up a bit and then used a coat of clear wax to protect it.

I bought some 3” pulls from Home Depot and attached them and was done – Woot! Woot!

So easy and simple and perfect for so many storage reasons.

Like I said – this is a perfect project if you are just learning to use tools or if you only have a few minutes to build a project. If you don’t have a staple gun, use a hammer and nails – you will get the same rustic feel from the nails. Head out to Home Depot and pick up some supplies and whip up a couple of these – you will love them!

Have a great day and get building!

Gold Glitter Sign from Girl Loves Glam {Spring Fever Series}

I am so excited to be partying with all of you Crafting Chicks readers today! I am McKenzie, a lifestyle/beauty blogger from Girl Loves Glam.

Girl Loves Glam McKenzie

I can’t even tell you how excited I am that it is finally Spring! Even though the weather in Idaho isn’t as happy and springlike as I would hope, I still enjoy adding some springtime charm to my house to make it feel bright and fresh. I knew I wanted to create a sign that also had some sort of natural element in it. I absolutely love wood grain so I chose to create a super cute Spring sign on a wood slice. Of course I needed to add some gold glam to it too!

Gold Glitter Wood Slice Spring Sign Tutorial

I am kind of obsessed with how it turned out. It is modern and fun! It was so easy to make too. Here is what you need to make your very own…

Spring Wood Sign Supplies

*Wood slice

*Vinyl (Just a scrap of vinyl will work because you won’t actually be using the vinyl for anything other than a stencil)

*Vinyl cutter

*Gold paint

*Gold glitter

*Glitter glue

Wood Sign Tutorial

First, cut out the word “Spring” out of vinyl and stick it onto the slice of wood.

Wood Slice Sign Tutorial

Paint over the vinyl and fan out slightly around the edges.

Gold Glitter Spring Sign

Spread glue around the edges of the gold paint and dump glitter on top of it. Spread the glitter out to make sure it covers all of the glue. Let the glue dry.

Spring Wooden Sign Tutorial

Peel off vinyl and scrape off excess glitter. You may even want to take a little sand paper to it to give it more of an ombre effect. I also went back and painted the gold paint on top of the glitter and fanned it out to blend it all together a little bit more.

DIY Gold Glitter Wood Slice Spring Sign

Find a spot on a shelf to display your pretty new sign! It fits right in!

Make sure to check out these great Spring tutorials from last year too!
