Did you see those amazing benches in my DIY Farmhouse Dining Room Table post? Since I wasn't willing to take on the tutorial for the table, I decided to write up a tutorial for the benches. Once you get the first one down, the rest are cake. We made 6 total, but only used 4 for the table. These sit two people each (especially when 2 are pushed together).
Have you ever been in the market for a dining room table? If you have, you know how expensive this vital piece of furniture can be. Not only do you have to buy the table, but individual matching chairs as well!
We have a rather long space to fill in our dining room, so it was hard to find the perfect table. Plus, I wanted to be able to seat a lot of people and the idea of buying 10 chairs was overwhelming to me.
Obvious answer... DIY.
I officially had the best 3rd of July! John and I threw together a semi-last minute party, which resulted in a tri-tip and hot dog feast for 17 people. It was our first major gathering at our house and we had a blast. I threw together some quick decorations before the party. Literally... two hours before everyone showed up.
Can you believe that tomorrow is already July 4th? Where has this year gone?! If you're like me and entertaining a group of people, but not prepared whatsoever, then this is the project for you.
I did it. I think I finally came up with a legitimate way to store my vinyl! I'm pretty sure every crafter with a die cut machine or a heat press has this issue. I've seen multiple ideas thrown out on craft blogs, Pinterest and Facebook groups. My problem has always been that I want my storage to be compact and very well organized.
Luckily I had all of the supplies on-hand to add these X shelves to my existing Martha Stewart cubes. Who doesn't love a free project?
