Happy July! I can't believe the summer is passing so quickly. We are having a great summer and I hope you are too — and today we're kicking off another special week here at Remodelaholic! A few times a year, we pick a theme and bring in some of our favorite bloggers to do a bunch of projects around that theme (which have previously included pallets, headboards, wall art, doors, windows, IKEA hacks, tables, and plywood projects). So this week our theme is 2x4s and other structural lumber, because we LOVE getting creative with the strong and affordable common boards to make projects that are functional with some flair.
We're calling this our #2x4andMore week — tag your projects on social media, and follow the hashtag to see even more projects.
Just like we did for our Pallets Aplenty and Plywood Pretty theme weeks, we're starting this week off with a CHALLENGE — what can you build from structural lumber? We gathered a great group of bloggers to get the week started, and we want to see YOUR projects at the link party below, too.
All these challenge projects are at least 85% structural lumber, and my oh my, I'm so impressed at the creativity! We're leading off the #2x4andMore Challenge with this garden arbor that we built for a wedding a couple of years ago, and check out the 13 other awesome projects from some amazingly talented bloggers — check out the links below to see more, and be sure to leave a comment and follow their blogs as well for more great DIY projects.

Now that you're inspired to hit up the lumberyard… we want to see YOUR best 2×4 projects, built using 85% 2x4s or other structural lumber (such as 2×6, 4×4, etc) — there are 3 ways you can join in on #2x4andMore this week:
- Link up your structural lumber and 2×4 projects and photos below (at least 85% 2x or thicker lumber — not 1x lumber)
- Use the #2x4andMore tag on social media to show off your project(s).
- Drop us a line here if you want to show off a project but don't have a blog to link up or social media to use the hashtag.
We'll be sharing some of our favorites at the wrap-up on Saturday, July 8th — we can't wait to see what you've done with a 2x4s and other structural lumber!
Got a great non-2×4 project you want to show off? Head over to our regular Remodelaholics Anonymous party here.
