Mudcloset DIY | Sauer Farmhouse

February 2, 2021

Ever since we moved in I have wanted to start DIY projects but just have had no idea where to start! I have never used power tools and the idea of starting felt super overwhelming! Last Monday I finally got the courage to try! I felt like the closet was the best place to start because if I botched it I could close the door and no one would have to see it haha! I had my brother come over and teach me some things and help with the bench build! Then I went to work shiplapping, painting, staining, and putting up the hardware! I am so happy with how it turned out!! On to the next one!!☺️
