Make a custom DIY picture ledge

DIYs tend to come in two forms: just-for-fun, or practical. Here on The Crafty Gentleman, I’ve definitely got posted a fair share of each, as well as some that blur the line a little – everything from a felt MacBook cover (made out of necessity to protect my tech), to a felt fajita (which was most definitely a “just for fun” project!).

Behind the scenes: new house update

Eeeeek I’m so excited for this blog post! Why? Because I’m going to be taking you on a little tour around my new house! We’ve not finished decorating (or even unpacking…) yet, but I couldn’t resist giving you a quick update on our progress so far. But before we start the tour, let’s back it up a little… last April, Gareth (my partner) and I set the ball rolling with buying our very first house. We settled on a new…
