It’s always fun to look back at all the projects throughout the year and 2017 was full with plenty building, painting and a little sewing. A quick stroll through the top ten build projects of 2017 in case you missed any of them when I first posted.
First up is the free standing kitchen pantry cabinet:
This could be used for a plethora of items besides pantry goods like office supplies, toys, games or even crafts. I made free plans for this cabinet right here.
Up next is a diy hanging light fixture that requires zero electrical talent.
I envisioned this light fixture in my dreams for a long time and finally made it a reality this past Fall. All the details and instructions on how to make a diy hanging light fixture here.
Thinking about outdoor dining already? Spring will be here before we know it so start planning your outdoor projects now.
Looking for a large work table that can double as a dining table and has plenty of storage?
This giant diy work table is the answer. With 22 drawers and ample surface area this is one hard working table. Get the plans and detailed instructions here.
My love for scrap wood runs deep so I’m continuously looking for projects that use up all those scrap pieces. These cedar scrap wood planters can be modified to fit almost any size planter and they are fast to assemble.
Whip up a few planters using my plans here and bonus cedar is great for outdoor use too!
One of my more recent builds is this tall cupboard with TONS of storage:
A nod to more primitive style cabinets this tall cupboard could be used for any type of storage – linen, office, as a food pantry, mudroom, and on and on. See my post here with more details and a link to the free plans.
One of my all time favorite outdoor build projects is this truss beam style coffee table:
It’s beefy and solid and can stand up to the elements but still provides plenty of space for drinks, books and feet 😉 The free plans and details on how I built this coffee table are here.
Get the details on the basket here along with how to make those chocolate bunnies almost real enough to eat!
Looking for a simple project to give as a gift? Maybe a housewarming plant with a plant stand?
This diy plant stand can be modified for almost any size container. Check out the simple free plans here.
And last but not least is the ever popular mudroom storage bin. I’ve built so many versions of this wood bin I’ve lost count.
These mudroom bins can be made to fit any cubby space and are the perfect solution for off season storage. You can personalize however you like and they are a great solution if you can’t find baskets to fit your cubbies. Details in my post here.
Thanks for joining me for another year packed with build projects. Here’s to 2018 and building all the things!
