DIY Blog Crush: As a long time DIY blogger, I’m no stranger to Ana White’s awesome DIY building talent. This girl has some crazy awesome DIY skills!
Ana White with daughter, Grace
Her beautiful DIY furniture plans have been sitting on my ‘to-do’ list for years as I work up the courage to actually try building something. I’ve conquered my fear of power tools, but the idea of actually building something from scratch has been a little daunting. When Ana’s new book was recently released, I knew I had to have it and pre-ordered it right away! Guess what. It’s here!
Designer Furniture for a Fraction of the
Retail Cost? Yes, You Can Build That.
The Handbuilt Home shares 34 simple, budget-friendly woodworking projects! As if her blog isn’t inspiration enough, having a physical resource in my hand is motivation to just get over my fears already and just do it already!
What I love most about the book? Not only does she share the details on how to build some gorgeous furniture, she also features some of our super talented DIY friends and shares their projects using her plans. How awesome is that?! So not only is the book filled with step by step ‘how to’ instructions, there’s some beautiful after shots created by DIY’ers we know. You can see a sneak peek of The Handbuilt Home here. I’m really enjoying going through and bookmarking things I love, adding ideas to my DIY notebook…
