I have lots of #porchpride with this vertical garden! I am so excited to show you this beautiful vertical garden made from a pallet
(a pallet that was someone's trash)! See my step-by-step tutorial. A pallet vertical garden is an inexpensive way to create a lovely and unique focal point for your outdoor space and you don't need a lot of stuff to make one.
The standard pantries in the house we bought last year were almost unusable. Long deep shelves and only 3-4 of them in a large closet sized area. Thank heavens they had doors. I designed
the shelves, my husband cut them out of MDF boards, I painted them with several coats of paint, and he installed them with aluminum channel. The channel allowed use of the shelf all the way to the back of the space. I counted and measured all the things in my food pantry to make the plan for how many shelves, how wide, tall and deep they needed to be. See the beginning and end result. It's so nice to be able to find things now. It turned out so nice, we did the 2nd pantry where I keep dishes, plastics, and mixed items for the kitchen!
I love Amish furniture and fell in love with an entertainment center recently. The $3200 price was way out of my budget. Since I had some Amish made pieces that I already was using for my
"entertainment center" but it was just plain black and boring so I decided to take it up a notch. I purchased a wood shelf to place betwen the bookcase units, then added shelf brackets to the top of the fronts to give it more style. My husband installed undercabinet LED lights on the shelves. I found solid wood raised panel doors online for $12 each. After it was put together I trimmed the top with carved molding and added a few other pieces of molding for additional detail. I then painted it with Freshaire organic paint (no longer available) in Midsummer Gold that I had leftover from another project and after a few days used Valspar Burnt Umber glaze to give it an antique look. This was my first attempt at glazing but certainly won't be my last. The total cost was around $120 and I couldn't be more pleased.
