The Best PLYWOOD AND HAIRPIN LEGS
DIY | MID CENTURY NIGHTSTAND
I spent an unhealthy amount of time stalking mid-century furniture on urban outfitters and sites west elm. there are so many beautiful pieces but I can not afford to buy all so I want to try a DIY version of one!
This bed is one of the more popular shapes and mid-century is one of the easiest build- up cheering. I will run through you how I put together, if you are not confident with wood cutting ask a friend or relative for some help (my father is my go to people who help me to sand!)
Materials to make PLYWOOD AND HAIRPIN LEGS:
To make the body of the head of the bed you’ll need four pieces of plywood or board informed.
the size of the plywood for this table is 15 x 45cm (x2) for the party and 45 x 45cm pieces (x2) for the top and bottom.
ps. you can easily create a larger version to use as a coffee table!
To attach the panel to the right side below I applied strong glue timber where the panels will meet (flush to the edge as shown above) and forging some panel pins below to ensure safety.
(You can also use the wooden pegs and glue to join the guide plate together!)
I just pasted the top panel down the sides as I will not be joining any really heavy weights. i left the glue to dry overnight.
Last but not least I added some hairpin legs! I borrowed from my foot wooden coffee table slice (the new ones I ordered did not arrive at this point!) I just need to screw them into place with a screwdriver or drill holes – no pilot needed.
Remember to use short screws no longer than the depth of the timber or they will poke through the other side!
I just picked up the bottle pump MUJI brand refil as I love cleanliness and their simple! I want to keep the table pretty minimal, so I just added a couple of portable wooden ITEMS- me in madrid, it reminds me of the design or the version that I had on my wish list.
I originally intended to deep chestnut wood stain but I kinda like the look of unfinished so I can give it a coat of clear varnish instead (..do you think I should dyed it darker?)
Do what you preferences – do you love mid-century furniture too?
DIY | EASY LEATHER STRAP SHELF
For me is like cushions and Haribo shelves (you can never have too many) styling them with books and jewelry is one of the favorite pastimes of my geeky so I’m more than happy I.
I must admit this is a bit of DIY an accident- I’m really happy for the project to create anther skin and when it arrived, I realized that it would be a perfect ‘hanging shelf’ so I had to try try it out.
You may remember me DIY wire shelves? it also hangs here before so I had two large wall bracket in place. it only takes a few minutes to hang skin and pop shelf into place.
Read on and I’ll show you how to make it from scratch …
2 x 50″ leather straps
length of wood (I’m 120cm)
two large screw hook
Skins and chisel a hole in each end of the strap, check the hole large enough to slip on the hook size you are using.
My hook was in place, but to suit you just drill two holes into the wall, plug pop in a wall and twisted on your hook.
Took two leather straps and slide the hole on the hook to hang them.
a leather strap hanging when two pieces of wood grab and slide through them. (I mentioned this project was easy?)
Leather is very strong so lost a lot of weight, just add your favorite plants, books and jewelry to complete your.
I die happy with how it turned out. SCANDI skin feeling rough and unfinished wood is exactly what I was aiming for… plus there are some easy to do… the winner!
Think-you do what you will be tempted to try this?
DIY | HANGING ORGANISER
