2. DIY Wooden Tray

I’m in love with this herringbone patterned wooden tray by Crafted By The Hunts.

3. Industrial Wooden Tray

This simple tray would be easy to make and quick to do from How To Nest For Less

4. Long Table Runner Tray

I love the character this tray adds to the dining table. Remodelaholic is where I found it but it’s actually from Sawdust to Stitches

5.Simple DIY Wooden Lanterns

These wooden lanterns are so simple and elegant! I love what Jaime Costiglio did with them. You can find the tutorial here on Home Depots website

6. Simple Decor Riser

Kippi At Home did a great job with these decor risers. They’ll add height to your tablescape and are so simple to make. The tutorial says to use a circular saw but depending on the size of your material and how large of cuts your saw does you can make these with a miter saw.

7. DIY Console Table

Wouldn’t this console table be fun to have in your home? The Happier Homemaker shared her simple DIY plans for it where she used a 1×12 for the top. But If your saw doesn’t cut that size you could use a few smaller boards for a planked top.

8.Easy Bench

Grillo Designs made this cute easy bench. Would be perfect in an entryway or mudroom

9.Chevron Bench

Everything about this bench has me wishing I already had on in my Home. Remodelaholic did a great job with the pattern and color choices. I want one!

10. 2×4 Coffee Table

For this coffee table made of 2×4 scraps she used a large board to attach all of the 2x4s to. If you don’t have a table saw or circular saw you could have Home Depot cut your board down to size when you buy it or you can buy a 1/4 sheet (measures 2 ft. x 4 ft.) which would make a nice coffee table size.

11. Hanging Basket Wood Stand

Wouldn’t this be a pretty display for your porch. It wouldn’t take much to achieve this look with Shanty 2 Chic’s plans for it.

12. Cascading Flower Box

Imagine this flower box overflowing with flowers. (Think Ball of flowers) I’ve got the process here.

13. Beginner Flower Box

If you’re looking for a beginner project then I’ve got you covered. This flower box is easy to make and versatile to use! They’d be fun willed with flowers and would make great storage boxes.

14. DIY Barnwood Frame

This adorable Barnwood Frame is a great project for someone who wants to get their feet wet with cutting angles with the miter saw! I have the tutorial here.
