 DIY 2X4 Wood Decor- Simple and Creative

I recently wanted to give a small gift to a friend to show them a little appreciation for their friendship. I didn’t want to buy something generic because I wanted it to come from my heart.  I came up with the idea that I wanted to share a special quote, but I wasn’t sure how to “display” it. As I was walking through my garage, I spotted some scrap 2×4’s.  I realized that using 2×4 blocks would be the perfect way to be creative using a material I already had, and make something really cute and meaningful to give to my friend. Also, I wouldn’t have to spend a dime and that’s ALWAYS a bonus! In just about an hour, I had a beautiful piece that brought a HUGE smile to my friend’s face when I gave it to her.  It was something she could use as home decor as well so she can always be reminded of how special she is to me!  It was a great success!  (more…)
