hello friends welcome or welcome back to my channel in todays video i have a lot of diys for you guys so let's waste no time and start creating ok i have a 24

dollar

tree

and some not so diys from

dollar

tree

in this video so buckle up and let's get started so we're going to start with this little shelf that i made a while back. I feel like this is my beloved son and my favorite project I've ever done, so I definitely wanted to include it. this build but for starters i took 12 of these dollar tree boxes glued them together four across wide then three rows down if that makes any sense i clamped them together then to plug those holes i took these giant popsicle sticks from walmart i put them on the bottom and measured them and then cut them so for the bottom of these the only ones that are the quantity that would fit was two and then i had to cut another one for the piece medium because i tried as smaller medium large popsicle sticks none of them would work so i took as the large popsicle sticks i measured the middle part and then if you cut them with scissors they will like splinters but if you cut them with a utility knife they cut so smoothly and nicely this is how i ended up cutting the middle pieces once i cut all those pieces i obviously cut all the boxes at once that way all i had to do was glue them , so the i attached with some hot glue and some wood glue to ensure they will last a long time and hold fast so before i go ahead and glue them on i grab some large stir sticks that i get from Home Depot or Lowe's for 90 cents to the package I measure across where the boxes meet and then I cut three of those pieces to that size once I cut those pieces we're going to glue the bottom of our bottoms to the boxes and like I said I just did that with some actually i think i just used wood glue i thought i used hot glue and wood glue but it looks like i just used wood glue.

Next, I glued the front pieces together using wood glue and hot glue. I guess that's why I thought I glued the bottom pieces together with that and then just use a little bit. little level to make sure they are nice and straight if you guys have been around you know I have OCD and when things are crooked it literally drives me crazy so I wanted them to be as straight as possible now on top I wanted to cover those holes because you could see the light coming in if that doesn't bother you then I wouldn't worry about this step but for me I definitely wanted to cover it up so I took those giant popsicle sticks one more time and measured them to fit the top and then the i attached with some hot glue then flipped it over and removed all the stickers from the back and then originally started with the early american stain i think this is it but it just wasn't dark enough for me and my

decor

is darker so i smudged the whole thing with jacobian and then smudged the front with early american i think that's what it is y'all don't quote me but i'll try to leave that in the d box e description once i had it all stained then i go in with my mini chip brush and some wavy white chalk paint and dry brush around this obviously dry brushing is optional if you don't like it then you don't have to do it that its the beauty of diy you can change anything i make to suit the color of your

decor

whatever it is anyway once i dry brushed i got these label holders from amazon they are linked in my amazon store at the description box and are pretty cheap.

high end farmhouse dollar tree diy s dollar tree farmhouse decor diy s on a budget
I paint that little ball and then I take this greenery that I got from Walmart. I honestly wish I had a different greenery this time I made a little mini topiary a few videos ago and I love the way it turned out so much better but at the time this was all I had so I just went with it so I just i cut out a bunch of these picks or little bits of a spike i should say and then glued them around the foam ball and then cut them off because i didn't think it looked right as the bits were and then i stuck a dowel in where i had the spike I would usually just use the skewer to hold the ball down so I could paint it and then replace it with a little dowel and stick it into a little little pot and then put some rocks around it and then glue on top of the rocks to make sure it stayed put. ok and then i put some reindeer moss on the top just to finish it off and make it look more luxurious once i had all the reindeer moss in there i just trim off the excess again to make it look more uniform and that was it.
I think I dry brushed around the little mini pot. You guys know I love dry brushing. when i'm dry brushing, if you don't like dry brushing just leave it out of your project, then i took another mini terra cotta pot and dry brushed the inside and outside of this one and then set it aside. I took the label off the bottom of this little mini jar that I think I bought at Michael's for a buck and some change and gave it a nice coat of Waverly chalk white paint and set it aside to dry and it had this little candle dollar tree but the color didn't suit my decor so i went see that with some waverly mineral chalk paint as well as a tiny little dollar tree vase i painted that with the mineral and did next i took that little little sign out of the blocks we made and gave it the front side i think i did two coats of the white waveley chalk paint just to make sure none of that wood was showing when looking back now i wish i had left some of that wood on display, but I end up grieving it anyway, so it's not a big deal. i also took this little succulent pot that i got from the dollar tree i took out the succulent and dry brushed around the edges of that little pot set it aside and took one of those little ones i got those jars on halloween i think they were like potion bottles and gave it a good coat of ravely white chalk paint.
I also forgot to mention that I put a piece of lamb's ear in that mini pot and then it was gone, so once all my stuff was painted I went right in. with my old wax and a mini br ush chip and I start by distressing this little white sign and I also had a little windmill that I think I got from Target a few Christmases ago and I just distressed it with some old wax too so I've I've had these calendars for a while now and I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them but I figured if I just flipped them over and cut out the little picture then I could stick it on this sign so I cut it out and put it with a glue stick now looking back i wish i had put it on with some mod podge or some spray glue so that's totally up to you but it did curl over time so i'd use something that will hold it much better next i took these little galvanized pieces i removed from a sign a long time ago this is exactly why you never throw away this kind of thing it ended up being perfect for this little decor piece so i cut it to size just leaving a little bit that would go down the sides that way they would stick really well so i glued them on top and bottom and then once again smoothed them over with that old fashioned wax that was for this one look how cute they are you guys, I don't know what it is about minis that I love.
So let me know in the comments below if you like the minis or if you don't move on to the next little decor piece. I take this little white pot and age it with the same old brush and wax. I set her aside as well and move on. to another decor piece so I got these little mini chalk couture transfers and ended up making another little sign out of four jenga blocks I think it was four I glued them together painted it white and took two different transfers I transferred one on the jar and one on the little sign with some black chalk paste and then I took it out and revealed that that's what I love about chalk couture when you remove that transfer look how amazing this ends up looking next I'm taking this one candle home and a chip brush and some white where it's chalk paint and i distressed this really hard to make that word stand out and then once i distressed it i took some jute put a blob of hot glue on the back and then i wrapped some jute around the neck of this little candle and then i secured it at the back with some hot glue again for this little vase all i did was aged the edges i glued a little jute around the neck for this too and then all i did was glue some greenery and some cotton stems here you can either leave this as is or glue greenery there like i did the possibilities are endless and its totally up to you what do with yours.
I'll then distress this little potion bottle or vial whatever you want, name it exactly the same as I did. Bud vase but I left the jute off the neck of this one because I wanted all of these items to look different in the end but not least I took a piece of jute and put some painters tape on the end to make it easy to thread. these beads through and I pull out my 14mm u Finished Wood Beads which are also linked in my Amazon store. Then I string a bead, tie a knot, string another bead and tie a knot, and so on, until I have about nine or ten beads on the thread and then just tie off the end to make sure none of them fall off.
I then popped it into the little white bucket and that was it for this project. something amazing on my channel. I feel like this project brought out my creativity more than anything before and really jump-started this new found love and inspiration for larger pieces and projects, so I'm very thankful for this project. I know it sounds like fun, but it's really has opened the doors to many more amazing projects, so as usual with all my videos, let me know in the comments below which project is your all-time favorite in this entire video, do it if you're new here my name is melissa i love to do al l crafty things on a

Moving on to the next project. I take these beware signs I got from dollar tree around Halloween time I love these long signs so every time I see them I literally pick up as many as I can obviously I leave some for others but I go to various stores and pick up a few here and there so I cut off six of them I measure how much space I need to take up off and then I take a bit off each end you can easily cut them off with a utility knife all you have to do is score them a few times and then the end pops out of right away but i put the bewear sign like towards me and then i glue them at the seams with some big popsicle sticks then i get some yardsticks and some big stir sticks because they are super cheap and then i measure a frame and then a piece that It goes down the middle once I have all those pieces cut out, then I take another yardstick and measure where they need to be cut for the cross pieces, like a barn door and you guys, I don't take exact measurements. so literally just hold these pieces in the corners, mark where you need to. be cut and then I cut it that way some people do angles and measure and all these things I honestly don't understand so this is the easiest way I knew of to do it and then I do the exact same thing for the cross pieces now I made a diagram of how they were put together because if you don't know where the pieces are then when you put them back together they are not going to fit together correctly so I numbered the back of these pieces and then like I said I made a diagram for myself once i did. i took it all off the sign sanded all the rough edges then stained all my pieces with the kona stainless steel and it has polyurethane in it and you guys love my jacobian stain but it takes forever to dry and then when it finally dries it still leaves something behind as well as this residue on your fingers and when i die when i die i'm sorry guys i'm probably going to stumble my words a lot in this video because it's an hour and 32 minutes a long time but just bear with me like i said when i'm Dying like I want to get it over with as fast as possible just because you guys don't understand or see it, but I shoot over the course of about five days and then the next day. i have to edit then the next day i have to upload so my whole week is edit upload and DIY Making my pieces take forever to dry is a bit of a pain so when i can get away with using this stain with polyurethane, I do it because it literally takes 10-20 minutes to dry, so I just wanted to explain that anyway. a bit in case you have trouble with the stain drying just go to walmart or your local hardware store and pick up a stain that is water based or has polyurethane in it so while those pieces dry i grab this large tile from the farm couture chalk transfer if you want to learn more about chocolate or just leave it in the comments below or send me a message on Facebook or an email and I'd be happy to give you more information but basically I just put my random chalk on it all the outline of this transfer and then I take it off and do it on both sides so while it dries I take a few jars now in the original video I'll leave the link to each video on the cards in the right hand corner but I did it on two jars in this beautiful blue color, but it did not fit my decor, so I only showed in this video my jars that I painted with the mineral color.
I painted two jars each color and then smoothed out the mineral color with my sanding my mini finger sander which is linked in my amazon store and I also aged it with some wavy white chalk paint I also aged the other blue jars with a little of wavy white chalk paint also for the blue jars sanding block because the stain is on the inside of the jar instead of the outside of the jar now i love the way they look just wanted to show you how they looked i love it is different it's really beautiful the way it turned out but like I said it just didn't fit my decor I just wanted to give you guys a few different options because I know not everyone likes

farmhouse

neutral colors so once I was done with distress these jars i went in with my jute i put a bead of hot glue on the back and then i wrap it up and then secure it on the back again with a little bit of glue Too hot I also added ties to all four jars obviously that's optional too so once I finish my jars it's time to put this all together so I pulled out my diagram put them in the places I had noted and then i glued all my pieces together once i had all my pieces glued together then i went in with my chip brush and some wavy white chalk paint and distressed this wood now i wish i hadn't distressed this guys i think it looks beautiful like this, i love dry brushing but for this particular piece i wish i hadn't dry brushed it but once i finished the video i went back and just sanded off some of that white and i love the way it turned out so i got at the end of this project once i was done dry brushing all i had to do was put the jars on now if im just doing one color from the jars then i would secure it with a little bit of e6000 or some gorilla super glue and a bit of hot glue but since i wanted to be able to switch these jars i just took a command strip and put it in the middle of the x and then placed my jars on the command strip one more time that way i could switch them.
I also added some greenery to the jars and I love the way it turned out. I have it in my living room on my little mantelpiece and I know you'll let me know in the comments below. What jars do you like? Do you like blue jars or mineral colored jars for the next project? This one is really simple but I love the results so once again I take these care signs and cut off the ends. six inches from each end I used a utility knife and scored it a couple times as I mentioned before and then they came right off if they don't come off then you can go from behind and just score that paper because essentially that's it that's where the design is it's like that really thick paper and then it will come right off so to attach them once again I used large popsicle sticks and glued where the wear part is, flipped it over and used some lightweight putty to fill in the holes and I didn't do that part in the middle.
I don't want it to be obvious that these were two signs together. I then gave it a faded coat of white chalk paint and went on my computer and printed out the word farm. I also printed this little one in a different font and I transferred both with my arteza graphite paper once I transferred my image then I go in with a level and just draw two lines on each side of this little one and just freehand an arrow that I wanted I said this little farm and I have an arrow going to the right once I did that, then I went over all the words with my Arteza black paint pen.
I love these paint pens because they are so creamy they also come with interchangeable tips so if one of your tips gets ruined or dried out But all you have to do is just replace it with the tip they give you and they give you multiple tips in each box of their paint pens, which is an awesome feature that I appreciate once I had all my writing. then for the o on the farm i wanted this to be a bit different so i had this chocolator hood transfer where i originally used two different colors but i didn't like the way it looked so i did alright I cover it again with my black chalk paste and then I age it with some distressing ink and a blending brush to finish off this project and this is another project I have in my kitchen and I love the way it turned out for the next one project we're going to do these little cottages i don't even know what you want to call them cottages huh lanterns i guess you can say that i take these little dollar tree sconces i glue the black ones together with some hot glue then paint the seam with a little bit of dye the waverly chalk paint and then i painted them both the opposite color so for the white one i painted it with ink and for the black one i painted it white then i take these little candle holders again from the dollar tree i use my hair dryer to get the decal off and then i take this tape i once again got from the dollar tree i stick it towards the top just to give it like i guess you can say to give it character no I was able to think of the word and then I made two simple bows and stuck them in the middle of that ribbon.
I did that for both just so they would look even. Then I had these little lanterns that I got back at Christmas. I took the handle off them then painted the top of these little lanterns is black don't forget to paint the bottom of these that way when they are sitting on your chandelier then you can't see the gold showing if you have gold in your decor then you can skip this step but for me i definitely want d to cover that gold color then i went in with some wavy white chalk paint and my chip brush and just distressed the top of these lanterns once they i distressed the top of these all i did was put some of the little wicker balls i got it from the dollar tree on the bottom of these candle holders.
I tried to put the lantern on top of the chandeliers but felt like it was just missing something so I put them on the bottom and then glued them on. little lanterns all the way to the top and look how cute you guys are this is another project i have around my house and i love the way they turned out plus they were super easy to make so i moved on to the next project that had a ton of sticks great for rummage that i really needed to use so i knew i had the perfect project in mind so i started by measuring three different sizes we are going to make little boxes out of these and the boxes actually ended up being very nice and sturdy and they were super duper easy to make I'll leave all the measurements in the description box because I can't remember the exact measurements at the top of my head but I cut longer pieces for the front and shorter pieces for the side and then once I had those cuts I lay them out and measure for the bottom pieces and then cut them too whatever measurements you take you only want to double it if you're going to do two boxes or triple it for tr it's boxes so I cut square dowels that way the corners have something to glue to make them nice and sturdy too and then once I had everything cut I go in with my finger sander and just sand down all the edges and the bits that chipped so when i paint these they paint great once i sanded them down then i go in with my weebly chalk white paint and paint each piece of these.
I also sanded down four yard sticks and then painted them white as well. you are also going to need two pieces to go between the yardstick because that is what we are going to glue our box to to assemble these boxes like i said before they are super easy all i did was start by placing the longest piece i take my square pegs and i glue them on each corner then i flip it over and put the bottom piece on next with some wood glue and hot glue that way i can put the middle piece on nice and evenly so i put all four sides together and then go into the sides of each one so I take the smaller pieces glue them to the sides of each side and then once I've done that I take the other longer side and glue that at the same time so for this step you want to work really fast because once you get it in there you're not going to be able to play with it if that makes any sense at all so once i had the main part of the box assembled i flip it i mean really the top and the pair bottom te are the same but i just look to see which side looks better i guess ess you can tell and then i use it for my bottom piece so i do the exact same thing.
I start with my wood glue and hot glue and glue that edge down. I glue the first piece and then glue the opposite side once I have it. i glue the opposite side then glue the middle pieces back on to make sure they fit nice and evenly i repeat all those steps one more time to create a second box next i put my yardsticks and put the cross pieces on top of them i get I make sure the boxes fit on the rungs and then I glue the rungs together and glue the other yardstick on top.
I did this for various reasons, so I did it for the look of it. that way the middle pieces the edges are a bit hidden but I also did it for stability that way the top and bottom piece are sandwiched keeping these cross pieces down because the boxes aren't really heavy but they aren't really heavy either lightweight so I wanted to make sure this would hold my boxes very very well so to glue these boxes one more time I used hot glue and wood glue and then lined that box up perfectly with the piececrosswise to make sure they held on nice and tight.
I just held them for a while like I said. i didn't want them to go anywhere so originally for the top of this i made this sign but after putting it all together and wearing it down with my old wax i just didn't like the wording so i ended up changing that sign it's because I didn't show you how I made that one, so to make the new one, what I did was I took a dollar tree sign and some light putty. I filled in those holes and once those holes were dry I gave the sign a weathered coat. of waverly white chalk paint i wanted this to look like it was three pieces of wood put together so all i do to make it look like wood is run my knife around the parts where the edges already look like wood and just score it maybe twice and then it gives the appearance that it is wood Then I printed this sign.
I have a free printable for this and I'll leave it in the description box but I just use my arteza graphite paper and transfer it to the image then go over it with my arteza paint pen and after of course I distress it with a little from my old wax as well as my distressing ink once i had finished this sign i also drew some small dots on the ends of the wood to make it or on the ends of the sign to make it look like wood even more than it already did and then i used some hot glue to glue to the top i also made labels for the front one said veggies one said fruit and i just free handed that wording on there and then i hung it on my kitchen wall and look how awesome it turned out guys I literally didn't need a lot of money to make this and it was super easy.
Now I know a lot of you leave in the comments that you think certain things are too hard and you can't do it, but I promise if you just think about it you can do anything move on to the next project this one is super simple I take this media planner from the dollar tree and i cut them off the backing then i grab my chocolator lettering transfers i will leave all the chalk couture stuff in the description box everything i wear i have i can link i will leave below in the description box if you just click in the title there will be a box and that's where all the information will be if you listen to the baby or sophia you're here with me um having a good time playing sorry for all the noise but i'm a mom and it is what it is so de anyway, once I transfer basil, thyme, and oregano to each one, I go in with my detail tool and just clean up any edges that bleed. then i get some floral foam that i got from the dollar tree and some different greenery that i got from the dollar tree walmart hobby lobby i get a variety of things from a variety of places so i have all these things in my stockpile of craft supplies oh my gosh guys don't break the supplies oh my gosh in my craft supplies and then I just put the matching greenery that I think looks more like grass in the pots and that was it.
These look so luxurious looking. like something ray dunn would do and i love the way you turned out moving on to the next project this is another one of my favourites. I take one of these trays from Dollar Tree and give it a good coat of chalkboard paint that I also got from Dollar Tree. Then I take a large popsicle stick that I got from Walmart and measure how many pieces I need to cover the bottom of this because I wanted the bottom of the pan to look like an overlap. Then I took three of those, I think they are, they continue as the ends of the pegs. and i painted three of them black and then i took these jars from the dollar tree too and i had three or two different kinds two of them my friend nicole from the week nest uses all the time thanks to her i saw them or else i never used them I would have found because they are not seen in the glass section very often, but I took two of the jars with the patterns, one that I painted with the Waverly white chalk paint and the other I mixed a little Waverly moss and white. together because I wanted this green color but I just didn't want it to be as bright as when it comes out of the paint container so I made a lighter green and painted it with it for the middle container as well.
I think it's like a candy jar or you. I can use it for many different things. I painted that one with my mineral color chalk paint. When I put the bottom of these pieces on our tray, I realized I didn't need another one like a half popsicle stick, so one more time. i used my utility knife to cut them out and stained them with my kona stain and then glued them to the bottom of our tray then sandblasted the little knobs on the containers and then took some dollar tree chalkboard labels and painted the edges with our kona paint chalkboard and then I also created free printables for the coffee, sugar and tea signs and then cut them out and glued them to our chalkboard labels. i wanted that to really pop out of the jar i love the way it looked and then once i was done distressing i glued some jute around the neck of all three jars now to attach these labels i wanted it to look like they were hanging from here so I just glued a piece of jute to the back and then tied it around the neck of these and also glued the little ends of the dowels to the top of each jar.
I also distressed the top of each jar. with some white wavy chalk paint and then to make the label really stand up I just put a little blob of hot glue on the back and then glue it right to the jar then I take my white wavy chalk paint and my mini chip brush and i just roughed up the top of this little tray focusing on the edges and the wood pieces at the bottom look how amazing it turned out guys i am absolutely in love with this project and i know you will let me know in the next comments below what you think for the next project i take nine of these square mirrors you can find them in the candle aisle in the dollar tree and i start by removing all the feet they have like these little foam feet so they don't scratch your table but i wanted They would lay flat on my foam board so I removed all of them then laid them out.
I placed these on my foam board to see how much space I wanted and originally left about an inch on the top bottom and sides but once I cut I realized I just wanted the foam board flush with the ends from the mirrors so I ended up cutting that off and then I went in with my finger sander and sanded those edges down to make sure they were nice and smooth. then i glued all my mirrors to the foam board and took another yardstick that i had sanded and measured a frame and laid it out and marked it because i'm going to put them at a 45 degree angle almost like a picture frame now you don't have to do this , you can just push them against each other h another but y'all know I'm extra I always like to go the extra mile to make it look

high

end and nice and finished once I had the frame cut I attached it to the mirror like that This way I could measure the middle and the cross pieces so I measured the long pieces first and then I put the cross pieces in, I measured them too and cut everything out when I take this off I once again marked the back so I know exactly where each piece will go when i go to put this back up and then i stain them with my kona tint then i take a piece of newspaper and some window cleaner and i really clean those mirrors real good before i put the frame on because once you put the frame on you can definitely clean the mirrors, but it's a bit trickier, so once I got it cleaned up, put the frame in first and glued it down before I glued anything on the mirrors, I thought it would be a lot easier to get this in there. and square if the frame was together first but i d recommend just gluing the frame to the mirrors first because it took a long time to dry and i was like ok what do i do now while this is drying? it's even before you glue anything, then i distress the cross members and then i just glue the cross members as well as the frame.
I found the easiest way to do this at first was by gluing directly to the mirror, but because of mirrors and the like. galvanized metal all that kind of stuff the glue dries really fast I guess because it's cold I'm not too sure about the science behind it but I know it dries really fast so I would definitely recommend putting the glue directly on your wood and then I glued it to the mirror so once I was done putting all this together I realized the edges were driving me crazy so all I did was take some square dowels I measured around the frame and then cut the pieces so you could have a nice frame on the back too that way if you have it on a wall where you can see the back then you won't see the foam board and mirrors you will just see this wood once i had them I cut then stained that wood and glued it as well and then last but not least I got this farmhouse handle that I got from Home Depot.
I think they're called cup handles. they were too long, i painted the handle of the mug white, aged it with my old wax and then just glued it on, since i'm only using this for decoration, i'm not going to use that handle, i screwed it on very small. screw it all the way to the top you don't want it too big because it will go through your mirror and it won't be good if you try to drill into that mirror it will break so I definitely just took a little screw because I want to be able to hang a wreath off of this and then I also had these corner brackets, I also painted them white or actually I think I spray painted them white.
I also glued them. If the screw holes bother you, then you can put gems in there or a very, very small screw. It's totally up to you, but the holes didn't bother me, so I left them. just like and then i distressed them with my old fashioned wax you can also see my little helper right there she is doing her thing she loves being here crafting with me and i love it too and that was it for this guys look how amazing this one looks look, I swear it looks like something out of a magazine, sometimes I just can't believe I'm the one doing these things, um, like I said on the first project, that first project really brought out my creativity and I love the things that these have occurred to me lately so i wanted to thank Natalie Tanya and someone thrice for buying me a coffee if you enjoy my work and think i do a good job and would like to buy me a coffee then go to the description box and you can find a link there, I appreciate it ciate each of you, I prefer to buy a coffee or not, I love you very much and you can always support your favorite youtuber by watching the ads for 20 to 30 seconds by clicking on the ads, there are so many different things they can do by liking subscribing sharing you don't have to monitor them support them monetarily you can support them by doing those simple things so anyway we're going to make those little farmhouse shelves or shutter shelves I should say so I cut two from the large stir sticks Right where the handle is, I took these little longer Dollar Tree wooden plates or Dollar Tree wooden planks and glued them on the ends after I painted them all white, then glued one on top , one at the bottom and then to get the second even if I put the stir stick in both stir sticks and then line up the longest board with the first one we made.
I don't know if I make any sense here if I'm not. Sorry guys and then I just glue the bottom piece to the second one too then I take I think I painted 30 big popsicle sticks white just so I would have enough and then I position and glue them at an angle so they look like shutter pieces Every few I'll lift it up to make sure it's even on the front and while the glue dries I pull on the back so it pops up like a shutter and then I finish off by cutting out some large pieces of popsicle sticks and then fitting them on top of these, not far enough to see them from the front, but far enough for these to stand up.
I feel like they look more realistic when the popsicle sticks are at an angle. but it's hard to get them to stick like that so I did my best to hold them up while they dried and then reinforced them to stand up with a small piece of popsicle stick and made sure to stick them together. they don't go anywhere and once again every once in a while I often flip it over to make sure the spaces are even to create the shelves. I take a pack of these smaller stir sticks and put it over our little blind and then cut them to size with my mom's miter snips for each one. shelf I'm going to use four of these pieces and then just stand it up to make sure the shelf is big enough to glue them together I cut out a piece I cut out a few pieces from the large pallet sticks and then I adhere it with some hot glue on either side of the shoe y'all i love to talk but to talk for an hour and a half straight i'm sorry if i'm stumbling over my words,but it's definitely a lot of talk so anyway When my shelves are all together I take two rods I got from the dollar tree and the shelves and paint the front and back of the shelves white as well as the rods then I distressed them with my old wax and the blinds themselves also wanted to mention for those of you that Like dry brushing I start with a very light coat and then build from there because you can always add more distress but it's hard, it's harder to get it off so always start off very soft and then work your way up to a darker distress if that's it. what you like for these in particular i went darker in some places and lighter in others so i thought i would just mention that next i glue the dowel rods in the middle of our blinds this will act as the part where you pull the up and down shutter obviously isn't going to work but I just wanted to mention that as well so next we're going to attach our shelves to this so I put my uh shutter on and I wanted to add chains to these just to make it look more realistic plus it will help hold up our shelves now i was surprised how well they held together with just hot glue and wood glue but i just wanted to make sure they would stay together obviously you cant put a 20 pound weight on these but they have a pretty good amount so i just took these um c hooks i had and put on the chain i got from the dollar tree and figured out how big i wanted my chain and then it depends Knowing how big I wanted it then I screwed in the c hooks one to each side and then one to each corner of Then I painted the shelf white and distressed those with antique wax just to make sure they blended in nicely and then we're going to attach our shelf, so to put this up, what I did was run a bead. of hot glue on the shelf and I put a drop of wood glue on the shutter I didn't mean shelf I put a drop of hot glue on the shutter and a drop of wood glue on the shutter too because like me I always say that the glue for wood will make sure it holds up for a long time and the hot glue will hold it right away.
Then I lift up the shutter and glue it to the shelf, so to reinforce this I turn it around. this around the back and i take a block of jenga and put it on either side of our shelf and this will just make sure it holds up even better for the chains what i did was i took seven links of the dollar tree potholder chains you get them as the spring summer section and i removed two of the links and flipped them that way each side could hold the c hooks if that doesn't make sense you can see what i'm doing here but they were very easy to take apart and then added them to our shelves then painted the chains white and aged them with the old wax too and then you guys literally that was it for this.
I put some decoration on them and I love the way they turned out. These are another item I have around my house and I just love that you can take really cheap items and turn them into as luxurious a decor as if you would see them in the Kirklands or in the hobby lobby. I'd pick them up in a heartbeat so I definitely love how they turned out passing another fan favorite I think I'm going to call this video dollar tree and more fan favorites I don't know we'll see , but i take two of these care signs and once again glue them together with some large popsicle sticks once i had glue them together then i flip it over and give it o fi First i took my light putty and filled all the holes as well as the middle part once it dried, then I sanded off the excess and gave it a coat of weathered white chalk paint.
Next, I take my general store. chocolator transfer which sadly guys is still not back in stock shipping has been crazy lately especially with a ship stuck in the canal and it's been a struggle getting items back but i promise whoever asked for my. to let you know when it's back in stock i promise you'll be the first to know so i'm taking my general transfer from the store i cleared it out nice this is a really big transfer so for the bigger transfers to you guys who want to get chalk couture or who want to do it the easiest way to do it is to flip it over and remove the transfer back instead of the other way around and then place the lint cloth on top instead of the transfer onto the fluff cloth the fuzzing cloth helps you put some fuzz in there that way when you get it out of your project it doesn't stretch and ruin your transfer so you want to fuzz probably like 10 times once you've transferred your image and then everything you can.
What I'm going to do is remove one side very slowly, making sure not to stretch the transfer. Then I just take my old wax and distress ink and really distressed this sign because I wanted it to look old and vintage and worn. and then look at how amazing this sign turned out another one of my favorites as well as your favorites and you guys seem to have the same taste as me which is pretty amazing so anyways moving on to the next project we're going to do this little birdhouse shelf now a subscriber of mine had seen a shelf i have in my kitchen and asked me to recreate it.
I know this isn't a project for everyone, but you'd be surprised what you can do when you just put your mind to it. so I grabbed about 15 of These Dollar Tree shelves are the new floating shelves. Many of you asked me for the bias number and honestly I gave it to you, but no one can find them on the website. You can try the Dollar Tree D Stash group on Facebook. Many times when I look for something I can't find, they find it and send it to me, so I took all this out of the package anyway and cut the jute hanger.
I then measured each part of this shelf. it has three different parts it has like a house shelf it has a flat shelf in the middle and then it has a square shelf on the right side so i measured all my pieces and they are going to take two pieces for each side so i cut all those pieces and then for the longer shelf i cut it out and then filled the holes with some wood putty before i filled these holes i glued all the side pieces together so basically all the pieces that are going to create a side i glued together if that has some sense once my wood putty was dry this dries super fast guys it was literally drying on my putty knife as i was using it but i just sanded lightly then vacuumed up all the dust now its time to put our pieces together now my Hubby and I angled this you don't have to do that but you know I say that all the time but it's the truth I'm extra so you don't have to angled them just put them together the only thing I re i would recommend cutting at an angle is the roof piece but again you can always fill it in with wood putty if you don't want to do that so this was the week my brother my husband lost his brother and when he cut these pieces for me he cut them wrong so they didn't fit that well but it wasn't a big deal i wasn't upset things happen my projects don't always go smoothly actually a lot of them i run into trouble because i'm figuring out how to put together this while I put it together instead of just watching a tutorial and p Working together I actually have to figure it all out so sometimes most of the time I run into issues but that's ok not a big deal all I did was fill all the cracks with my wood putty and you can't even tell that. they didn't fit very well once I finished that and sanded it down, then I'm going to measure the back pieces of the house and the square, so I just put big sticks against the back and then mark where the first one will be and cut it off, then I mark where the second one will be and cut it out and so on that way I have a nice frame for the back I do it for both pieces the square and the house like I said and then once I have them all cut and sanded I paint them with my Waverly white chalk paint. waverly white chalk paint and do a distress coat one more time so I don't have to distress it Also when I finished putting the frame of this together I wanted it to be really sturdy so my husband came up with a really cool idea .
I put in some square dowels and then for the cross pieces to hold the shelves up it popped up. cool idea like i said we have the two longest square dowels now for the pieces that are going to hold up the shelves like i said what we did was we measured them to be perfect and then drilled holes nailed dowels into the holes where the dowels square it's going to be and then he drilled holes in the other side and then he slid the dowels in there so basically we created wooden dowels like you'd ever put together furniture or as cube organizers they come with square dowels for stability and that's basically it what we did with skewers and it literally worked so well I was really impressed with this idea when he and I worked together we came up with some great stuff and I just love him for it so anyway what I did was put two of the cross dowels at t he ends and then where the other pieces were because i want to put a frame around each of these pieces we put three so basically next to the house there were two peg rods and then on the other side where the longer shelf will be there will be three pegs again three pegs on the other side and then two pegs next to the square if that makes any sense so i cut the longer pegs so that they would fit perfectly and then I took all the pieces out and we didn't put the skewer pegs in all of them, just the ones that were going to put the larger decor pieces in, so where the house was and then where the square was on either side, we used the skewer pin, I don't know if it's 100 percent necessary, but for me, this is a heavier piece, so it gave me peace of mind knowing this wasn't going to fall apart.
Next, I'm going to put the frame around each one of these, so what I did is I took my square dowels and just held them up. up to each side and then I marked and cut them now I will I leave the angles in the description box because when I did this I had to cut it a few times to get the perfect angle but now that I know them I can let you know and if you do this project it will be much easier. for you to put together so I put a frame around the whole house and the shelf the shelf in the original I have in my kitchen it has a piece that crosses in the front and it's very very difficult to decorate so definitely I wanted to skip that on my project but once I cut out all my frame pieces like I said I framed the house on the back of the shelf and the side and then as well as the wood part so once I had all my pieces i cut out then i went in with my ink waverly chalk paint and a waverly brush and gave all the pieces a weathered coat of that ink waverly chalk paint after weathering all the pieces like the back pieces and the shelves that i glued the back pieces to the house and the square with some wood glue with some hot glue, i must say i then glued all the pieces on my shelf with some hot glue and wood glue.
I also forgot to mention that when I cut and painted my frame pieces, I left each side in a pile so I know which one. it would go where if that makes sense so for the front of the house i left it in a pile and then the back of the house i left it in a pile like that once i glued it they fit perfectly so i just glued all those pieces with some hot glue and then for the top of the house i knew these needed to be glued together to make the frame for the top of the house so once it was all together and i measured the perfect piece then i marked where it would show the front if that makes sense and then I sanded those corners that way once I glued this on top of the house you can't really see the dowel sticking out.
Once I had all my frame pieces glued together, then I was originally going to flip this over and just add my hooks, but then I had the bright idea to add chicken wire to this shelf piece, so whatever I did was take my chicken wire from the dollar tree and I measured it and cut it and then I put it on the back and I used my electric stapler to staple it now for the top of this little shelf you have to make sure you hold it while you put it staple because that just holds on with a little bit of hot glue so I just wanted to mention that and then once I stapled it down I cut off the excess one more time with my wire cutters to make the little hooks.
I got this I guess its hangers from the automotive section at Dollar Tree and started. Taking my big unfinished wooden beads, I took a pair of scissors to open up that hole a bit more and then I glued them onto my hangers and then to get these little hooks out, what I did was I took my wire cutters. in the place where it would like to go through the door and then I just took my needle nose pliers and bent it back and forth until it came off. i think i just hadThey had to do it three or four times and they came off easily.
Then I went in with my ink chalk painting. and at first I started painting this and then I realized I wanted to put some wood filler in the bead holes so I stopped painting for a minute and ended up filling those holes and then while they were drying I just i painted the rest once i painted the rest or should i say when i finished painting the rest of these hooks the wood putty dried up so i just sanded off the excess and then finished painting the beads too once everything was painted so i went in with my wavy white chalk paint and distressed the beads and hooks below to drill this into the studs you want to drill a hole first as well as into the hook itself and then screw them all the way to the back of this right in the middle and then I also gave Screw two sawtooth hangers on each side and see how amazing that turned out.
I'm so in love. I have this in another part of my house. I'm running out of places so I keep changing everything but this is an amazing piece and I can't believe that with my husband's help I got it right. Guys, for the last project I took some parchment paper. This is a new trick I learned. Probably the oldest trick in the book, but honestly I didn't even think about it until the other day my daughter and I were baking cookies and I got the brilliant idea to use parchment paper instead of those silicone mats because it's so much easier to throw away. a piece of parchment paper than cleaning the silicone mats even though they clean up really well this is faster and more convenient for me but i take eight of the square dollar tree drawer pieces and two of the boxes of wood that we used in the beginning of the video and I stained them all with my jacobian and set them aside to dry and then I took eight of these dollar tree chalkboard labels and the easiest way I found to get these little pins off of them was to take my needle nose pliers and grab the bottom of it and then they just pop out once I got the clothespins off and then gave them a nice coat of white chalk paint.
I actually gave them two good coats of white chalk paint and then once the chalk paint was dry I took my brush and my wave of ink. chalk paint and dry brush around the edges of each of these tags then i get another chip brush and i get a lot of questions about these guys you can find these black handle ones in my amazon store they are actually plaid also and then the other ones that i use that are the natural wood handle ones i get from plaidonline.com so it depends but they are both literally amazing so it's up to you these black handles that i have linked in my amazon store and if i can find a link for the short handled ones that are natural wood i will link those too they just come from online charts like i said like i said i grab my mini brush and some white chalk paint. and dry brush around each of the boxes and for the boxes, also dry brush around them, but also dry brush the inside of the little drawers that I draw, just dry brush the front of the drawer, I don't worry around the inside of the drawer so I thought I'd just let you guys know in case you were wondering and then once I had all those dry brushings done all I do is take my hot glue and stick the labels on the front in these ways now if I can give you a little advice if you can find eight of the drawers of hearts or eight of the drawers of butterflies.
I would definitely do that because these are not square. I don't know how they get put together, but I'm always amazed at how lopsided they are. but i found that if you get the same designs then they all have the same cut if that makes any sense once i had the labels i had these label strips from amazon for a while so i thought i would. I used them to get these drawers out because some of the drawers don't fit right so they're very hard to get out and you definitely need something to hold on to to get the drawers out so I had them handy once again they'll be in my amazon store in the description box at first i started using them as a little screwdriver and then i figured i could use my drill so i used my drill on the rest of them now in the original video i made with gang bethany .
This was actually my last video that I did. I mentioned that you guys know I'm extra. and i could see the edge of those labels so i went in with a small brush and my wavy white chalk paint and painted around the edges of those labels then i took my wood glue and glued this all together like so i start with four boxes on the bottom i glue them together i clamp them to make sure they hold up well and then i glue two of the boxes or two i must say i glued the boxes come on melissa you're at the end together girlfriend oh sorry guys im tired so i glued four at a time he put the two boxes on the bottom then four on top excuse me y'all please forgive me next i wanted feet on these i had put all this together i made all the decor on the inside and then i was like ok well i think this needs a little more so i decided to put my feet up on them.
I took these little square pieces of dollar tree wood and glued two of them together four times with some hot glue. I then made my own stain using some old fashioned wax and chalkboard paint. along with a little bit of water until it stained like a consistency and also until I got the color I wanted to go best with my little shelf huh storage piece then I stained those little feet and once they were dry I distressed them with some waverly white chalk paint last but not least i flipped my stock uh storage decor piece. I took some wood glue I liked some wood glue and some hot glue and I glued these feet to each of the corners and that was it for this project y'all this seemed to be another fan favorite That's why I included it in this video. so if you're still here please let me know in the comments below you're still here or leave a red heart that way I know you enjoyed this content and don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already. bell and that way too you get notified every time i upload as usual leave your favorite project of all these in the comments below and don't forget to give this video a big thumbs up if you enjoy it too please share with your family and friends if you think they would enjoy it because those thumbs up and those eh shares really help my channel grow it helps youtube to notice me a little more and it also helps youtube recommend content that they think you might like based in the videos you interact with and like the communication between all that good stuff so i thought i would mention it too if no one has told you guys today that you guys are absolutely amazing and beautiful you are worthy and i love you with all my heart and soul and I'll catch them in the next goodbye do it you
