Create a Beautiful, Modern Home with One-of-a-Kind DIY Furniture
Beds, organizers, Adirondack chairs, a play table, and more! It's easy to build inexpensive, quality furnishings with this indispensible collection of woodworking projects from Ana White, the popular blogger who has inspired millions of homemakers with her stylish furniture plans and DIY spirit. As a young mom on a tight budget, Ana learned to make her own well-designed pieces inspired by the styles in her favorite stores--saving thousands of dollars in the process.
Now, in this reference for woodworkers of all skill levels, Ana shares everything she has learned along the way. Inside The Handbuilt Home you'll find:
* Plans for 34 versatile furniture projects for every room in your house--from beginner-friendly home accessories to sturdy tables, a media center, kids' items, and storage solutions
* Comprehensive information on using off-the-shelf lumber and basic equipment--almost every project can be made with a drill, a saw, and some hand tools
* Easy-to-follow instructions, costs, and time estimates to guide even the most amateur of carpenters through any project
You don't need to be physically tough or superstrong to make your own furniture, and it's okay if you don't know that a 2x4 doesn't actually measure 2 by 4 inches. All you need is the determination to create a better home for yourself or your family and the confidence to say, "I can build that."

I love the furniture projects in this book! Easy to follow directions and handy supply and cutting lists convinced me to buy my own copy of this book.
