Hey y’all, I haven’t shared any of my art pieces here on the blog in a while… so, let’s break that habit, shall we?
So, here’s the deal. One of my roommates just so happens to be a woodworker. That roommate also happens to be my dad. Small world, isn’t it?
Anyway, my dad was in the mood to get back in his wood shop over the long winter break, and I suggested he make some things that people might like to see, say, on my Etsy shop. What happened next was… well, a collaboration in which I learned more about woodworking than I bargained for.
I designed all of these wood decor pieces myself, and I sketched each up and traced them on different widths of wood (because, yes, who knew… there are many, MANY different widths of wood…), and then my dad cut things out for me. The rest of the process was basically all on me, too, because I did all the painting, assembly, and decorating. However, he did show me how to use the drill-press-thingy, and I made some of the holes in these wood bases below!
I wanted to make the pieces for the bases interchangeable, so that’s what the holes were added for. That way, the dowel rods/sticks attached to each piece could be put in each different hole for a different look and even switched out with some of the other bases. It’s all a mix and match type of situation!
We also did some more traditional wood decor things like wall art and simple Easter bunnies.
I mean… Easter is just around the corner, guys!
I decided to get a head-start on Independence Day (and other U.S. patriotic holidays) too…
Now, if you really, REALLY like any of these decor pieces… for one, please let me know in the comments below, and two, you can check all of them out for sale on my Etsy page! I’ll be adding more in the coming weeks and even months, probably, so check back often for even more new arrivals.
Oh, and by the way… you can get 15% off EVERYTHING on my shop by using coupon code BLOG15. Just saying.
