Today is just a super quick post about not overlooking junk and how you can make something awesome in just a few minutes.

I am trying to get ready to do a really cool feature wall in my dining room, and in pulling out all the family silver from storage I realized there are pieces I can’t really “hang”. So, what the heck am I supposed to do with them?
Looking through my workshop shop I came up with a bunch of drawer slides and various wooden scraps. The pile kind of looked like this:
I grabbed my miter saw, glue and my very favorite brad nailer and went to town! There weren’t enough pieces to do exactly what I wanted to do, so I improvised and came up with this cute little number:
I cut 3 of the slides in half to make the sides. I trimmed an old garden stake for the corner braces and used glue and the brad nailer to put it all together. It was a super simple and super quick project which will work fabulously to hold little silver pieces and trinkets on the wall. If I had a few more slides I would have made a back for it, but it’s against the wall, this will work just fine.
Do you have “junk” lying around you could make something super useful or decorative out of? Don’t be afraid to give it a go!
