Spax Fan Favourite Contest

Hello!

With the third Instagram Building Challenge finished (I've got a blogpost coming up about that, promise!) I was thrilled to find out that Spax (one of the judges and sponsors of the challenge) had decided to extend the fun with a contest!








Guys - I made their Top 5!! 






If you loved my swing as much as I do, I would love if you would take a moment and vote for me!  There's no need to sign up for anything, so it's super easy and only takes a moment.  I would so very much appreciate it! All you have to do is pop over to Spax US webpage and click my name on the list.


Quick, easy and only takes a moment!! (If the choices aren't showing up, just scroll to the bottom of their page and click "view web version" and the page with the choices will pop up.

Oh, and did I mention that along with the winner, they are picking a random voter to receive a SPAX swag package too???  So awesome!

Thanks everyone!  I really appreciate it!

IG Builders Challenge 3

I did it.  I participated in another Instagram Builders Challenge and wow was that fun.  With a lot of unexpected things happening this past week though, my shop time was quite limited so I was a little concerned I wouldn't complete the build on time!  Happy to say I did and managed to submit all my photos this afternoon (deadline is tomorrow!!)  I'm just going to take a quick breather but will be back soon with all the details. :)  Here's a quick pic of me and my finished build though! ;)


Promise I'll be back soon!!!

Hidden Storage Cabinet

Hi guys! 

I'm so excited to share this recent project I just finished.  If you've been following me on Facebook or Instagram you will have already been seeing a few sneak peeks of the progress.  If not, I'm so glad you're here to see it now!


I had a lot of leftover pine in my shop after a few past projects (I tend to overbuy so I don't run out) and thought this would be a great way to use some of it up.  I'm a huge fan of chalkboards and after building my daughter a HUGE chalkboard for Christmas, (I guess I should blog about that project too!) I had a lot of chalkboard paint leftover as well, so thought I'd add that to mix. ;)

So this is the final result.  How cute is this?!  It would be great in a kitchen, hall, or really anywhere in the house. 



A simple little drawer on the bottom is a great spot to hide the chalk!







What makes this cabinet really unique though is that it's actually got HIDDEN storage!  Ready for this?





How awesome is that?!  The perfect spot to tuck away any extra house keys, jewelry or other small items you'd like to keep out of sight.  


I've posted a quick video of how it works.



And I just had another thought!  If you're like me with a growing Essential Oils collection, how awesome would it be to modify the slide out a little and store all your oils in it! 

I had a lot of fun building this piece and anticipate I'll be building a few more in my future.

Thanks for popping by!
