Random Thursday. DIY project.

Hallo meine Lieben,

how is your week going? We're having some interesting weather here in Ohio...lots of rain, storms, sometimes even sunshine. 
It's time for another Random Thursday with these girls.



And this is the topic. 



The thing is that I love DIY projects but haven't taken the time to do anything in months (except of some drawing and painting). It is a shame because there was a time when I did something creative at least each week. So yeah, it kind of makes me sad that I don't find the time to do more of the things I enjoy right  now. I know that I should take the time but there are always "more important" things to do which just isn't right because the things I enjoy should be the most important things to do. Well, I don't want to go on about this so instead I will share an idea for a DIY project with you. 

My DIY book shelf idea.

I built a book shelf probably 10 years ago and I really enjoy that kind of work so I want more! You need some wine boxes, similar to this one. I would say 12 should do it. 



Then you paint the bottom of of each wine box in any color you like. I would probably use 2 different colors. Probably a dark grey and white. 
Then you arrange the boxes the way you want the book shelf to look at the end.  I think I would use 4 as the bottom, then 3 for the next row and then another row of 4 and then 2 on the top. Which shows me that I need 1 more box. So you need 13 boxes. 
Then you need a hammer and some nails to but all the boxes together.
And in the end it should look similar to this, but without the TV in the middle.



As you can see, I am in desperate need for some more book shelves. 
This is my next project. What's yours?

Oh, and I am still working on the scarf I started months ago. Maybe I can finish it until autumn. 

Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. Hi there,
    usually I love to do crafts and DIYs but at the moment, I am just not in the mood, although we're moving soon and there are some ideas what to do. But still.. :-D

    That bookshelf looks great, something, I would like myself!

    Aaand tonight, we'rea having the Kohlrabi Schnitzel, finally, can't wait to taste them! Hopefully, I will have a blogpost online, soon, with this topic.

    And of course, I will link your blog then, if that's okay!

    Have a great birthday weekend!

  5. this is a brilliant idea! if you do it you have to share with us!
    this might sound crazy coming from a wine lover but where do you get wine boxes?
    I've never seen them.
    thanks for linking up!!

    1. I will definitely share it!
      Well, when you buy 6 bottles of the same wine they usually come in such boxes. But you would have to buy a lot of wine. :) I know that my dad has some in his basement. But you can also go to wineries and ask them for the boxes, they usually give you some for free or for really cheap. You can also get them on ebay!

    1. I hope you can find some in Canada! I haven't seen them here in America either but they are very common in France. My Dad always bought his wine in France so he has many of them!
