Happy Thanksgiving friends! I thought it would be appropriate to share this mantel artwork today on Thanksgiving as we gather together to ask the Lord's blessing. I made this piece for the priests' dining room at the church rectory and hung it above the mantel.
We're building our way towards the big day less than 5 weeks away! Get started now on all your diy gift builds and your friends and family will be thanking you.
Who needs cute storage? Everyone! I built these wall bins using Ana's plans here for two tween nieces but the finish options are endless and they would be great for boys, girls, adults or even in a nursery.
Sharing my diy decorated tree today complete with ornaments you can make yourself including a fast and easy tree stand cedar wood cover.
Of course I started with the tree and this one is a beauty. Tree Classics sent me this lovely 7 foot pre-lit slim Christmas tree and I am smitten! It arrives in 3 pieces, I set it up in minutes, plugged it in and magic. But the best part here is the size - it's perfectly slender and fits this corner with room to spare (and plenty of space for gifts underneath!).
While the tree stand is functional and unobtrusive I wanted a DIY finishing touch and built this tree stand box cover from cedar boards. The box is actually upside-down from what I originally planned because I failed to measure properly but now I'm liking how the inward taper makes the tree look taller - bonus!
