If you are looking for other blogs that focus on DIY design, one to note is Knock Off Wood. Think Lady Bob Vila with a no-muss, no-fuss view (as in, no carpentry language) on building your own furniture. She makes it look easy enough that I am no longer thinking of heading to IKEA for my new craft room desk in favor of building it myself. After all, I’m looking for clean lines, it’s going to be white (so painting over a few mistakes is ok), and I think after some practice I could master a square box with drawers. I may start with my dining room table which she already has plans for. One of her readers made this one for only $60:
A similar thought crept into my head when I was thinking that I could tile my own bathroom floors. I have an old craft box that I tiled the top using teeny glass tiles, which I glued onto a plain pine box and then grouted after it was dry… so maybe I can tackle this on a grander scale. How different could it get? In a later post, I’ll show you how I created this box if you’d like to try it yourself.
I’m sure this is the point where most people use common sense and reasonably assert that tiling a small box and tiling my bathroom floors are not even CLOSE to the same thing. But I’m going to do it anyway :)
