If you have ever wanted to build your own furniture or home decor, I have a wonderful treat for you. I’ve found 50 home decor and furniture ideas that you can make from 2X4s. The wonderful thing about this project list is you don’t have to have a lot of woodworking experience or expensive supplies to create beautiful pieces for your home. 2X4s are really cheap. In fact, they’re among the cheapest pieces of lumber that you can find. Head off to Lowe’s or your favorite home improvement store and you’ll find that these boards are only about $3 for an eight foot board. You can make so many wonderful things with those inexpensive boards, and I’m going to show you how.
Many of these DIYs are so easy that you can do them in your spare time. Have a weekend free? You can build an outdoor couch, bench, or any number of console and coffee tables to add farmhouse rustic style to your home. In less than an hour, you can make wonderful holiday décor or some beautiful gifts for teachers and friends. I’m telling you, these projects are all super easy and they’re all so very inexpensive. I love simple and cheap projects, and particularly when those projects end in rustic or farmhouse furnishings.
If you have a few 2X4s on hand, you can build so many wonderful things. Even if you don’t have any, they’re so cheap that you can justify driving to your local hardware store to pick up a few. I’ve even got a great workbench in here that you can make from those 2X4s to help you with your other woodworking projects. Some of these can also be made from reclaimed wood. I love reclaimed wood projects. Instead of throwing out those boards when you’re redoing cabinets or other renovations, you can turn them into new and exciting pieces for your home!
So, if you have ever wanted to make your own furniture or home décor, this is the perfect post for you to peruse. There is everything in here from stocking hangers and wood block snowmen to beautiful outdoor couches and even a wonderfully easy to build porch swing. From coffee tables to bathroom mirrors, there is always something that you can do with those 2X4s to make your home better and we’re going to take a look at 50 amazing ways for you to do just that. I hope you find as much inspiration in these DIY woodworking projects as I have!
1. DIY Wood Stocking Hangers
You can make these adorable stocking hangers from leftover 2X4 pieces from other projects. You just have to nail the two pieces together, add a hook for hanging the stocking, and then decorate they however you want. The wood pieces are relatively heavy so they’ll keep from topping over – fill those stockings as full as you want. And, this is a much cheaper way to get great stocking holders than paying $10 each for them.
2. Easy Knockoff Charging Station
This charging station looks just like those expensive ones you see at department stores, but it will cost you much less. Actually, if you have a 2X4 on hand, it won’t cost you anything. You just need to cut a piece of your board, measure the hole that you need to fit your phone and then stain the board. You can build it to fit your phone no matter what type it is, so there are no worries of the phone not being secure while it’s charging.
