If you’ve got the DIY builder’s bug, we’ve got tons of ideas for you! 2×4’s (and other structural lumber) are great to build with because they’re easily acquired, come in all different lengths to suit your needs, are sturdy and inexpensive! Whether you’re a first time builder or a woodworking pro, there are so many great things you can make for your home, yard, kids and more! We’ve sorted our top picks into the number of boards you’ll need for each project to help with easy perusal. For each build you’ll need the specified 2×4 lumber and perhaps one or two other materials (like plywood or lumber of other sizes). Find this weekend’s 2×4 projects right here!

Kimberly Mueller is the “me” over at bugaboo, mini, mr & me, a blog that highlights her creative endeavors. She especially likes to share kid crafts, sewing attempts, recipes, upcycled projects, photography and free printable gift tags/cards. When she’s not enjoying being married to her best friend, chasing after the natives (AKA her three kids) and attempting to keep the house in one piece, you can find her with a glue gun in one hand and spray paint in the other. Aside from DIY pursuits, she also enjoys writing, reading, music, singing (mostly in the shower) and the color yellow. Kimberly recently published a craft book entitled Modern Mod Podge.
