Posted by | DIY, Kids, Photo Prints, Uncategorized | No Comments

With Father’s Day just around the corner, our Pinterest feed is loaded with DIY dad gifts.  Instead of resorting to the usual socks and latest barbecuing accessory, we decided to spend an afternoon sifting through in hopes of finding that perfect unique gift for Dad.

Let’s face it, dads aren’t usually the most design-savvy folks (nor do they care to be).  Inspired by a tutorial we saw for a leather valet tray, we thought we’d grab the kids and give Dad’s nightstand a little personalized makeover.  It’s the first thing he sees when he wakes up and the last before falling asleep, so why not make those moments extra special?
