Did you know we built our own farmhouse dining table? We did along with with several other items like beds, daybed and a console table (our boys’ bunks were built by friends of ours using the the same resource).
But how did we know how to go about it? All the wood pieces, what size to cut and how to assemble? My secret weapon folks. I discovered this site many many years ago when we needed furniture and didn’t have much money to buy it. Her (yes it’s a her which makes it that much more awesome) name is……Ana White and she’s a total rockstar.
She has plans for just about everything you could want to build and once you get the hang of it you can alter it however you want for additional size or style. She lays it ALL out in an easy: to buy list, cut list and step by step assembly instructions. Trust me, if you have 2 thumbs and trouble measuring you can STILL do this!!
The hubs and I built things together after the kids went to bed, it was kind of like a date night without going anywhere (and we were in grub clothes covered in sawdust, but hey?!) It’s really fun once you get the hang of it and it’s super personalized since it’s built by the use of your own hands (and the ability for you to pick color, alter the size, etc.)
Check her site out here, you can thank me later.
