You might think that lumber is just wood, but it can be used and crafted into so many things. There are so many things you could do that you might not know where to start. Here are a few ideas on using the lumber you have on hand to make way cool things for your home.

Customize An Old Picture Frame

Pictures are worth a thousand words, but only if they are properly displayed. Rather than hit up a store to buy a brand new frame, the pictures will speak a lot louder if there’s a customized frame surrounding it. Build a small or large frame out of your lumber. You can paint or stain it any color you’d like and have another story to tell along with whatever picture you put in it.

Add A Lumber Frame Around Your Mirror

Mirrors are a great addition to any room. If you want the room to look larger and brighter, add a mirror. It’s that simple. But getting a certain style to go with the mirror can be a bit harder. Get out the lumber and try your hand at creating a frame to go around the mirror. You can do something rustic that looks like it’s right out of a cabin or create something sleek by painting it black or silver.

Build Boxes For Your Plants

It’s good to have plants in the house and you might even have a garden outside. To keep the plants looking sleek and stylish in your home, you might want to build plant boxes to go around them. The lumber you have works well for a planter and they’re not that hard to build either. You can leave the lumber’s natural color or paint it whatever fashion you’d like. Outside, the natural lumber fits right into the garden.

Make A Coat Hanger

There are never enough places for coats, so why not use a little bit of lumber to create a coat hanger to go by the back door? If you are ambitious with your time and efforts, create a coat rack instead. Or build some boxes to go under the hanger rack in order to place shoes and other items that often get dropped by the door.

Construct End Tables

It’s nice to have tables on either side of the couch, on either side of the bed, and in other locations throughout the house. They can hold lamps, remotes, magazines, and anything else. Building tables with your lumber can be simple or more intricate, depending on the design you want for your home.
