Our Favorite Woodworking DIY Projects
5 years ago neither of us had ever picked up a pneumatic nail gun and we definitely had no clue what a miter saw was. Today, we use those tools on a regular basis whenever we’re tackling a new woodworking DIY project.
Woodworking projects are some of our favorite because they can add so much to a space. Sometimes they add some function (like board & batten with hooks for storage). Other times they simply make a builder basic home look much more high-end and custom. Plus, once you do 1 woodworking project you usually have the skills to tackle any other form of this DIY.
Today we thought it would be fun to recap all of the woodworking projects we’ve tackled in our own homes. It’s funny because we realized that Bridget has added wood to just about every single room in her entire house. Every room but one! That may seem excessive to you, but it just shows the care and attention she has given each space to truly make it her own.

Writing this post makes it very clear…we are obsessed with adding wood to walls! Ha! But honestly, it’s just because it’s the easiest and most inexpensive way to add personality to your home. All you need are a few tools, wood, and paint to completely transform the look of a space.
We highly recommend adding these basic woodworking skills to your DIY repertoire. Because once you master those, the possibilities are endless!
