4 Father's Day DIY Ideas

4 Father's Day DIY Ideas

With Father's Day coming up this Sunday, June 18, now is the perfect time to head to your nearest ReStore for some DIY gift inspiration. We've compiled a list of four of our favorite projects that require few materials and can be done in an hour or less!


1. Upcycled Cabinet Door Game Board

Start by picking up a used cabinet door at one of our ReStore outlets. This tutorial gives you a few options for refinishing with paint or stain. Once you've refinished the door, add your favorite games by hand or with templateschess, checkers, and Spaceman (a nonviolent alternative to Hangman) are just a few ideas that the dads in your life might enjoy!

If the dad-figure in your life is a baseball fan, this might be the perfect project for you! All you need is a 1" x 4" wood plank, several old baseballs, a measuring tape,  a screwdriver, and some screws. Read the project notes in this article on remodelaholic.com.

4. Personalized Spatula or Hammer

Whether the dad in your life is more tool-adept in the kitchen or the garage, here's a DIY project to help him keep track of his tools and carry loving reminders to work with him. The tutorial is for a personalized spatula, but you can easily adapt it to a hammer (or anything else with a wooden handle).
