It’s the season of giving!  I partnered up with Jaime Costiglio to bring you a brand new free gift plan, every Friday in the 12 weeks leading up to Christmas!  Over the years, we’ve gifted hundreds of plans, many that you can make with scrap wood.  Check out the entire Handbuilt Holiday Collection here.

Full Length Mirror with Storage

Are you looking for a perfect gift for a teen girl?  A beauty center may be just right, and we came up with this mirror with storage thinking of our own daughters getting ready in the morning.  Here’s why we love it.

  • Uses an expensive full length mirror, so no need for a separate hair/makeup mirror and outfit mirror
  • Elevates the full length mirror off the floor (so you can vacuum under it)
  • Compact, so can work in small rooms or even bathrooms
  • Handy storage that is out of sight – all the tools and beauty essentials just where you need them, but out of sight
  • A quick DIY project that won’t cost a ton but will be used and appreciated.

Pine Wood Lego Table

The spare lego pieces are both the best and worst.  The best because this is where imaginations come alive.  The worst because no one wants to step on a lego, much less pick them up constantly.  Lego pieces are getting smaller and smaller.  And more of them.

So I decided to build a lego table for my littles to pile their mix matched and leftover legos into.

It conveniently hinges closed to hide it all and create a surface for other play –

And you can build storage for under it, if you want.

I know this one looks complicated, but it really isn’t! 

You can build this project with just off the shelf pine boards, some screws or nails, and your basic saws.  Nothing fancy needed here!

Angled Bookrack and Toybin

Specific storage makes tidy up a no brainer – especially for toys.  Because kids know exactly where to put things away, making toy room clean up easy and decision free.

This week, Jaime Costiglio and I, are sharing a brand new plan to help you with just that!

This bookrack features a bin at top for organizing books forward facing, suitable for different sized books.  This also displays beautiful book covers facing outward.  The bottom is great for larger items like stuffed animals, blankets, or favorite action figures.  I love that there is no tabletop surface to accumulate clutter on top of.

Toy Barn that You Can Build!

We wanted to add toy barn to our collection of free build plans – as children love playing with horses and farm animals.  

There are many different styles of toy barns.  For this plan, we went for a less expensive and open option!

Simple Modern Doll House

A Blank Slate Dollhouse for Creative Play

This doll house is a blank slate to encourage creative play.  Instead of following out the set things a store-bought playset does, let their imaginations bloom.

  • Rooms can be furnished and rearranged as a real house
  • Play with any doll, action figure or animal – my toddler is playing with ponies with it
  • Can be painted or stained any color
  • Beautiful and simple enough to leave in the living room

Save $200 by Building it Yourself

This dollhouse is inspired by this dollhouse costing $229.  You can build your own all for around $30 in materials.

And building it is the fun part!  This was a joy to build, building therapy I call it!

What About the Doll House Furniture?

The dollhouse furniture is all DIY made out of scrap wood pieces.  I will be posting the plans in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned and save your scrap wood!
