DIY Project for the Home that's Quick, Easy and Cheap

An Industrial or Rustic Wall Hutch

Industrial Furniture

Everytime I see this DIY Project we created in a day I am amazed. It took less than ten hours to make, costs less than $100.00 and anyone can make it!

The impact it is adding to my Living room is dramatic, and I am loving it!
Below we are using stands to hold it up so we can visually decide how high up to hang it. Using the 1" x 2" wood pieces that were secured to the top and bottom we screwed it directly into the wall studs.

The blue painters tape strip at the bottom represents the top of the couch. I wanted that as a reference point before we hung this baby up. 

Rustic furniture

As far as weight goes? It weighs a lot less than we thought it would! We guesstimate it weighs around 45lbs. 

There are 2 more fascia pieces I wanted to add for purely decorative reasons, but those had to be added last. 

This hutch is only approximately 6" deep, so getting a drill in at the top with a fascia board on the front would have been impossible.

The fascia board we added has some gorgeous scarring to the wood. I am so glad we found this treasure at the Lumber Yard. Below shows it completely secured to the wall and with the 2 fascia boards installed at the top, underneath the crown molding.

Are you blown away yet?

Furniture built in a day

My Oceanography teacher in high school used to tell me I wasn't applying myself enough because I got C's.

Well apply this Miss Thomas! Because this was totally my idea and I think we rocked it.

To style this bad boy I went the theme of 

Family, Rustic, Living and Color.

The metal pallet banding and furniture tacks are stunning and give it that added detail that I am loving!
