I love anything that has that great farmhouse style and this mirror is certainly no exception. It’s made from 2X4s and it’s pretty easy to build. You’ll need a mirror for the base of course and then a few 2X4s to build around the mirror. A dark stain would look beautiful but you can do whatever color or shade you need to match your décor. This would be perfect for a bathroom or you could even hang it in the mudroom and put hooks on the bottom for jackets.
You can display these great flag blocks any time of the year, but they would be really great for the Fourth of July. This is another project that only needs your scrap wood so if you’ve done other DIYs with your 2X4s and you just want something to use those scraps for, here’s a wonderful project. Just cut off the ends, sand them down, and paint them to resemble a flag. It’s an easy and absolutely beautiful project.
You can buy one of these rustic crates for use in any number of DIY projects. They run around $10 or so each. Or, you can make one yourself from your 2X4s and they will cost you about $3 each. You’ll need some serious power tools for this one to cut the boards down to size and to round them off. Once you’re finished, you can use your wooden crate to create so many wonderful things!

You can also make one for elders and put it in your garden or terrace or anywhere in the house. Elders can use it to relax and kids can use it to play or sleep. Although this is a really beautiful piece of woodwork, it is not that easy to make. Only someone with good woodworking skill can think of making this swing set. Also, I couldn’t find a good tutorial that illustrates the process of building a wooden boat-shaped swing set. Most Probably, I will write one when I build mine.But if you really want this swing set like right now, I would suggest you hire a good woodworker, who can build something similar. Or just search the internet and maybe you get lucky enough to find a tutorial for this. Good luck either way.
Build this handy stool in one hour and park it in your closet. You can also use it as a step to reach the high shelf. How to make storage shelves: All you need is a 4 x 4-ft. sheet of 3/4-in. plywood, wood glue and a handful of 8d finish nails. Cut the plywood pieces according to the illustration. Spread wood glue on the joints, then nail them together with 8d finish nails. First nail through the sides into the back. Then nail through the top into the sides and back. Finally, mark the location of the two shelves and nail through the sides into the shelves.
