DIY Furniture

DIY Furniture

DIY projects are a lot like cooking your meals at home—you’re saving money, gaining a bit of satisfaction and often cursing and throwing things by the end of the night. We all know our way around a table saw, but when it comes to DIY projects, far too often it’s the creative spark that leaves us with a coffee table reminiscent of something in the discount bin at Ikea. For some projects that you’d be proud to put on display, pick up a copy of DIY Furniture. Featuring more than 30 crafts from the world’s best design-minds, this book/manual will have you creating usable works of art in no time. Just make a quick trip to Ace or Home Depot and follow the simple plans to have a home that collectively costs less than the one distress leather chair you want from Restoration Hardware.
