Create Your Own Furniture

Save money and build your furniture

Furniture can be expensive, which is why a cost-effective solution is to build your own. You can even mimic your favorite companies.

Measure twice, cut once

Double-check your measurements to make sure you have the right ones when cutting materials so that you don't have to do it again.

Sand any wood you use

When using wood, make sure to sand each piece before assembling.

Don't take shortcuts

If something is written in the instructions, it's there for a reason. Don’t try to skip a step to get done faster.

Practice makes perfect

The first chair you make may not turn out so well, but don’t let that deter you from trying again and honing your skills.

How to Build a Storage Unit in a Minute and a Half

Last year, I came up with how to build a bench in sixty seconds and I’ve always wanted to create another similar idea. So, without further ado, here it is. Yesterday, I showed you how to build a simple cubby dresser using four crates. Today, I am showing you how to add three stair treads and create an amazing storage unit. This storage unit can be used as many things. I plan to use it in my daughter’s room as a dresser. My daughter hates to put her clothes in drawers. I hope this is a solution that wI’ll both of us happy. I seriously wouldn’t mind one for myself. It would be great in a mud room using each crate for a child or an item. Such as one bin for hats, one for gloves and so on. Maybe a bin afor rain gear.
