It’s no secret, I love to build my own furniture for my house. I love that you can customize it to fit perfectly in your space. You can also get the exact look that you want for a fraction of the retail price! One thing that I’ve really come to appreciate is that when my kids are rough or color on my DIY furniture, I don’t feel quite as bad because it didn’t cost very much to build! 🙂 There are so many DIY furniture ideas and plans out there, lets narrow it down and check out a few of my favorite DIY tables for every room in your home.
