Another great idea from Knock off wood....

I have wanted a nice piece of furniture for my son's room for a long time - but refused to spend hundreds of dollars on one. Then came this amazing site - I am obsessed with Knock off wood. This is the 3rd project I have completed from her plans (SO FAR). We made a set of bookshelves, and entry table (earlier post) and this TV hutch. It cost us about 100.00 in supplies and 2 hours of work. So worth it... I am in love with it. I can't wait to paint it and decorate it. I know that making your own furniture can seem so intimidating , I was terrified at the thought of spending so much money and then totally goofing it up, But it is so rewarding when you finish a piece and I know I will smile every time I see these things in my home because I had a hand in making them beautiful. I would encourage anyone to try one of her plans - she has a lot of easy furniture you can start with.

I am taking my time on this project because this will probably be the last one we build for awhile - we have to save every penny. We are trying to find a home closer to my family - so everything else has to be put on hold!! But I am so excited!!!!


  1. I love wood working! (I use the tools around my house more than my husband) ;)
    This looks great - when it is painted it will look amazing. You guys did a great job. I will have to check out that site.
