I bought this vintage glider second hand from a nice lady who had rocked all her babies, and grand-babies to sleep for naps in this chair. I got it for $40 Canadian. I probably could have bartered a little harsher for it, but I see them for sale often for over double that! The cushions were worn from all the baby rocking and needed some extra padding and a fresh fabric.
Hello DIY enthusiasts. Today I’m going to take you into a little more detail on my tabletop that we built for my DIY Farmhouse Table. I’ve had a question or two on how we managed to assemble a single piece 4′ by 8′ table top out of lumber. Since this is after creation the pictures aren’t amazing but I’ll do my best to talk you through it! As always any questions can be posted in the comments or you can reach me through the contact form on my about page. Read more
I have always loved the look of an upholstered headboard, to me it looks and feels like an adult bed. This was a big project, the only furniture I built this summer. This post will link to to several others as it was quite a process and really breaks down into several steps. That way you can see take the whole process of each separate element of the bed.
Today I am going to take you for a walk through all of my furniture building. It’s long over due and hopefully really helpful. Please send me any questions in the comments or through my contact form on my About page, I am happy to help. This tutorial is specifically for the bench, but its all the same. You can modify my instructions below and make the Farmhouse Coffee Table, Farmhouse Console Table, or even my masterpiece the Farmhouse Dining Table. I apologize if I’m not using the proper carpentry terms – remember I just started!
We had an IKEA coffee table for years, and although we were “nice” to it. It definitely showed its age. When we decided we wanted something sturdier and started shopping we realized the price of sturdy was actually quite surprising. Do people really pay $600 for coffee tables? I really didn’t want to have something that I was concerned about when people come over. I want to be able to shrug off water circles, wine spills, children banging on it… etc etc and some people may be able to shrug off a $600 coffee table, but not me.
