I love to sew. It saves money, provides a creative outlet, and I can make money in my own home. Sewing a dress for myself saves about $40. But Ana White figured out that making her own headboard saved her about $2,000! My dress took 8 hours to sew. Her headboard? About 3.
She became so good at creating beautiful designer look furniture that she did it for money. Creating for money in mass wasn't as much fun as creating for loved ones, so she started www.knockoffwood.blogspot.com. Knock Off Wood is where Ana shares free instructions, building plans, and encoruagement for DIY furniture building. It's an amazing place.
She inspired me to pick up my drill and get to work. The hardware store even cut my lumber to size for me. First on my project list are these shelves from Martha Stewart:
Next is this bench from Knock Off Wood:
And after that, I'd like to try a farmhouse table and benches.
