DIY projects can take several days and a lot of hurry up and wait. Sometimes it's nice to have a project that gives you instant results. This coffee cart was a Goodwill find. It's such a unique piece. The trays are removable and the cart collapses—but it was in need of a little love.

The pallet sign project is an absolute must! It’s perfect for personalizing a party or your home (I’m making this one for my sister’s wedding). It’s beautiful, simple, and doesn’t leave a hole in your wallet! I mean, free wood may require a little extra manual labor, but it’s totally worth it. And isn’t the hard work what makes the final product feel so good anyways?
