During the quarantine, I started building and creating craft projects more than ever. While cleaning out the garage, I completed five scrap wood projects and was able to get rid of our large woodpile. Using tools and stain I already had, I was able to create functional items as well as simple decor.
5 SCRAP WOOD PROJECTS
This DIY picture frame easel was super fun and something that can be used everywhere in the house and I can change out the photo for each season or mood. It was a little difficult to put together at first, but I figured it all out and shared a simple tutorial.
I wanted a bath tray for years and finally just decided to make my own. This simple scrap wood bath tray has been a game-changer to my Sunday self-care nights. I can watch the latest crime doc on my iPad or read a new book.
And in our guest bath, I needed something to put above the toilet but wanted to keep it simple and stylish. I built these simple box shelves and they were the perfect solution. They are a fun detail and keep the decor safe and sound from falling off the back of the toilet.
Another fun scrap wood project was creating these wood pedestals. After seeing some being sold online, I figured I could just make some for myself for free. They were super simple to make and are great for decor, candles, or anything that needs to be elevated or contained.
And the last project was this Chinese bench that I quickly put together at the end of our One Room Challenge master bedroom reveal. Another popular item being sold online, that I was able to create for free. I used the scrap wood leftover from our ceiling beams.
I had a good time DIY’ing these little scrap wood projects and was happy to clear out the garage. Sometimes you can create the simplest things with the stuff you already have. And it’s totally worth it!
