Kids Tool Bench

After creating an amazing pegboard craft supply organizer, Heidi from Honeybear Lane had some of the pegboard left over. The little piece of board spurred on another very cool project in which Heidi repurposed an old table into a workbench for her boys. I love the rustic and more realistic look of Heidi’s bench compared to its plastic store-bought counterparts. And of course the fact that Heidi made it out of things she already had makes me love it all the more!

All in all, it cost Angie $1 and less than 15 minutes to make her woven mirror!

The price was the only thing holding her back from owning one until she found a way to get one for FREE by transforming Grandpa’s old tool chest. With a cleaning, sanding, and staining, Aly finally got her beloved trunk coffee table and brought new life to a family piece that was going to be discarded!

Wooden Twine and Scissors Holder

When it comes to Pinterest, the pinning is the easy part. It’s making those pins actually come to fruition that presents the greater challenge. So you know Angie at Knick of Time was thrilled to mark this wooden twine holder as “pinned and done,” especially considering she pulled it off for less than a dollar using part of an old chair leg and a small wooden plaque she picked up from the craft store. This is such a darling storage idea that could also work great for ribbon, wasabi tape, and other crafting supplies.
