The appeal of the mirror folding table stems from its simplicity, dual functionality, and the ease with which you could easily put it out of the way It also adds to the aesthetics of the room On a basic level, it comprises two slabs of wood One slab has the mirror; another slab has a cutout to show the mirror when folded And both slabs are connected together and to the wall with hinges

For this idea you can reduce cost by using salvaged wood or old HT stamped pallets and you could use a picture instead of a mirror or acrylic sheet 14 Minimalist Oak Desk If you’re thinking of a cool, impressive, crafty weekend project to get busy with, this is it It is a stylish, standard desk, but with an opening for storage It isn’t complicated or anything

You only need four wood pieces (actually two boards that you’d later cut in four) And a bunch of supporting materials— screws and brackets mainly To give your new oak desk better finnish, apply tung oil It’ll darken the wood slightly but wouldn’t erode its matte finish 13

Inverted Bookshelf That looks a bit weird, right? And it’s not so much about its cool factor It’s also about the effective use of all available space You can organize your books on both surfaces of the bookshelf It looks futuristic But it’s actually fairly easy to put together

Lay the exact tape measurement on the ground and use it as a guide to verify how you’d stack the crates You should particularly pay mind to the space between the crates (above and below each crate) Step 2: Give each crate proper and thorough sanding Don’t skip the nooks between the slats Step 3: Use a 1” hole saw bit to drill four matching holes at the edges of each corner

To avoid splintering, don’t drill a hole through at a go Instead, drill halfway from the bottom, then flip the crate, and drill from the inside Step 4: Do quick sanding around the holes Also remove any dust on them With that done, paint all crates use a paintbrush or paint sprayer (and spray shelter)

The paint used for this project is chalk paint Afterwards, seal using some satin polyurethane, which you should also spray on Using a sprayer and spray shelter allows easier painting of the crates’ slats Step 5: Begin the process of hanging the crates That involves measuring out two sufficient rope lengths and tossing them over the bar

Alternatively, you may cut each rope length in two Then tie the divided ropes above the bar This allows for easy disassembly of the setup This tut uses the former option That's it Since you’re still watching, like this video before you leave and share it with anyone close to you in your social circle
