Sometimes I can’t afford the things I want but when I can re-create it with my own two hands (or our four hands), it’s so rewarding. Money saved.  Pride in work.  This was the case with Kari from Beautiful Inspirations and her husband.  This is the Colette bed from Crate and Barrel.  Price tag $1799.
