If you blog stalk at all I am sure you have stumbled across Ana at Knock Off Wood. I am OBSESSED with her blog now and think that I need to become a carpenter ASAP! She creates plans to recreate high end furniture that is FAR out of my budget. Think Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Land of Nod and similar for a fraction of the cost. All you need for most projects is a drill, some wood glue...and the wood of course. She gives you the layout to cut the wood so you get as much wood from a piece as possible. Oh and did you know Home Depot will cut it for you...for FREE!?!?!
I obviously can't link you to every single project I want off her site but I am going to link you to my very most favorites...well todays favorites. Go check her blog out, you won't be disappointed.
First up; this Pottery Barn bed! Lucky for me we actually need a bed so this would be a great first project! (hint, hint Chris)
I love this bookshelf/organizer from Land of Nod.
last but not least for today
This entryway bench from Pottery Barn
Pretty amazing right? Oh and she has an amazing bod...if that is a side effect of carpentry sign me up ;)
