Make Your Own Furniture!

Do you love the furniture from stores like Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and other expensive furniture stores? Yesterday, a friend had posted about Knock Off Wood on facebook.

Knock Off Wood

So I took a look around yesterday and I love this site!! She shows you how to make the furniture you see in these catalogs. I love looking through my Pottery Barn catalog and dream of the day that I can somehow afford some of the pieces I see. But now I can! She has plans for dining room tables, bookcases, those huge entertainment centers, beds, kids furniture and more. She even shows you how to make those cute Pottery Barn play kitchen sets! She also has a few of her own designs. And what's great about making it yourself, is that you can customize it to fit your needs or style. One reader even shrunk an entertainment center to fit her needs. I can't wait until we buy our own home again! I'll be putting my husband to work! ;)
Here is a couple of her projects...
And of course there are much more and much bigger projects you can do too! I'm in love!

Here is her bragging board filled with pictures of her fans' projects using her designs.

This is GREAT. The hubs has been getting into the whole wood working thing and building. He wants to make this really neat bunk bed and I asked him to make a toy chest for the little one. Thanks. This is REALLY REALLY useful :)

This is awesome. We haven't painted the kids rooms yet, and I have it all pictured in my head what I want to do for Autumns room and some of this stuff on the site makes it seem more accessible. I love looking at Crate and Barrell and Pottery Barn (kids) and just oogling over the stuff, thinking "one day". Thanks for sharing.
