As part of my basement playroom turned game room project, I wanted to help delineate the sleeping corner of the basement in an attempt to make it a *bit* more private. The easiest, most obvious solution for me was to DIY a privacy screen!
I’ve had a black and white inlay coffee table on my inspo board for aaages…. The one I have has rounded waterfall edges and a bold black and white stripe accented but a white inlay border. It’s such a fun twist on a coffee table bringing a bit of graphic detail to a space (coffee table) that doesn’t necessarily add much style to the room. $1200+ is not in my budget so I decided to try my hand at DIY! Wish me luck!
I wanted to find something to build that would be useful but would also take pocket holes to assemble. This lidded box for any mail or deliveries was a long time coming and the perfect excuse to try out my new Kreg Pocket Hole 720 Pro! (Check out my saved highlights for a look at the jig itself and the overall plans for this project.)
I was nervous about building this mostly because there were so many steps where I could go wrong! BUT… it turns out, this is actually quite basic and came together really easily! It’s not perfect and there are still places where measurements aren’t symmetrical, but it’s only a firewood shed, so this is the perfect way to practice building techniques.
As part of our laundry room makeover, you all suggested a drying rack for the space! Truth be told, I use a laundry drying rack about once a year at best, but… I might use one more often for hand washing now that I have one! There are plenty of these available on Amazon or Etsy, but fundamentally it felt pretty simple so I wanted to try and make my own.
