RevolutionPly® Decorative Birdhouses – Part V

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

The second in the series of four RevolutionPly® and RevBead® Reversible Beadboard Plywood decorative birdhouses is being decorated in a winter theme.  We painted this birdhouse a deep red and covered the roof and ground with craft snow to create a wintry snow covered barn.  Other embellishments that were hot glued in place include a […]

RevolutionPly® Decorative Birdhouses – Part IV

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

In decorating our first RevolutionPly® and RevBead® Reversible Plywood Beadboard birdhouse, we painted the birdhouse a dark green and the base and roof brown.  Sticks were cut and glued to the roof to give it an appearance of a thatch roof.  Then beautiful colors of fall were added with orange and red leaves, and pumpkins.  […]

RevolutionPly® Decorative Birdhouses – Part III

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

In continuation of our RevolutionPly® and RevBead® Reversible Plywood Beadboard birdhouse project, we now have our cut pieces ready for assembly.  Wood glue is applied to the edges of each piece before being nailed together to achieve a more solid construction.  Wood filler is used over the nail holes.  Once the filler has dried, it […]

RevolutionPly® Decorative Birdhouses – Part II

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

To begin construction of the RevolutionPly® decorative birdhouse project, we are using both 1/4″ and 1/2″ RevolutionPly® panels.  The 1/2″ RevolutionPly® is better for use in framing the birdhouses to add greater stability, while the 1/4″ RevolutionPly® is best for the roof and trim pieces.  We decided to also incorporate our RevBead® Reversible Plywood Beadboard […]

Decorative birdhouses are not just for use outside for birds, they can also be used seasonally to enhance the décor of a home or festive gathering.  Over the next several weeks, we will be constructing and decorating a series of four birdhouses using our RevolutionPly® panel.  These birdhouses will be decorated to represent the four […]

Celebrate Spring Sign – Part II

In continuation of our spring sign project, it is time to start decorating.  Using white craft paint, welcome was painted across the top of the light gray RevBead® sign.  Each letter in spring is being painted a different color to represent the beautiful colors of the season.  For our sign, we are giving it the […]

RevolutionPly® Plywood Cork Board

Friday, March 10th, 2017

Another great idea using RevolutionPly® plywood is to construct a framed cork board.  Not only is this a handy message center, but it can also be a stylish addition to a home’s décor.  It’s up to each individual’s taste how the cork board is finished with unique framing styles and colors. All you need is […]

Birch Plywood and RevolutionPly® Wine Rack – Part IV

Monday, February 20th, 2017

To complete our wine rack, we put two coats of a rich mahogany stain on all of the components before the final assembly.  We discovered that a paint brush worked better than a cloth or foam brush for applying the stain, and it was painted on in smooth strokes going along the grain. Once the […]

Birch Plywood and RevolutionPly® Wine Rack – Part III

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

Now that the outer box frame is complete, the next step in our birch plywood and RevolutionPly® wine rack project is to construct the inside shelving that will hold wine bottles. Each of the inside pieces are measured and notched halfway through the panels, so that they will fit together forming an “x” shape.  Then […]

Birch Plywood and RevolutionPly® Wine Rack – Part II

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

We have the pieces cut for the framing of our wine rack.  After lightly sanding the edges, we used screws, a hammer and a steel bar to achieve our desired distressed look.  This can be done by placing screws on a hard surface, in this case a cement floor, and set the cut pieces of […]
