Scandinavia + These DIYs = Project Heaven (Welcome to ScanDIYnavia)

Hunker may earn compensation through affiliate links in this story.

Here at Hunker, it's well documented that we have a serious crush on Scandinavian design. And what's not to love? Minimal, clean, functional, high quality … and wood. Lots of wood.

Lucky for us, we work with talented collaborators who design, create, and photograph original Scandi-inspired DIYs. Have you seen them yet on our Instagram feed or Pinterest boards? If not, allow us to present these gems. They are meant to be seen and shared. So, enjoy. And if you're inspired to try out one of these DIYs for yourself, share a pic with us on Instagram @hunkerhome.
