Morena of Morena’s Corner shares at Crafts Unleashed how she refabbed a thrift store storage cube with a fun dice design. Morena used chalk paint, so there was no need for sanding or priming. She simply painted the wood cube and then glued on wood circles. I can’t think of a more perfect place to [...Read More]
Kristen from Wild Wood Chic was browsing through Pottery Barn’s site when she saw what she describes as “only the most gorgeous reclaimed wood, planked quilt square wall art to ever be.” Kristen knew she was going to have to make it since the price was way out of range and spent the next night [...Read More]

My husband is the Tic Tac Toe champion in our house, and our kids love trying to beat their game-master dad and learning all his strategies and secrets.

Julia from Stars & Sunshine created a set of wooden photo blocks for her dad that includes six different pictures of their family. I love Julia’s design that allows you to “rotate” the pictures by simply turning the cubes. This would make a fun and meaningful addition to Dad’s office, and even the kiddos would enjoy the picture “puzzles.”
Mary of The Lovely Roost loved the idea of surprising her boyfriend with a wooden six-pack bottle crate for his birthday. Mary almost bought one online before realizing it would be much more meaningful if she made it herself. This would be a great scrap buster project if you’ve got a wood stash. And what better way to tote your fave beverage to game nights and neighborhood bonfires?!?
