Our finished knock of wood pieces.... I am so addicted!!

UPDATE: Ana at knockofwood posted pictures of our finished projects on her site, I am so excited!! so go check them out!!

I am having a blast with my husband and our new furniture building addiction. It is so cool to see something that you would love to have in your home and then make it - but for so much cheaper - of course!!
I have found myself checking out furniture I see at the stores and trying to figure out how it is made. I have so many ideas and projects - it is getting to be a little bit overwhelming!! I guess we better get to work huh?!

I wanted to share some of the projects we have found from Ana's blog Knock Off Wood- I am warning you now - you will be hooked!!
This is our favorite and most complicated project so far... but I love love love the way it turned out. It has so much storage!!! I would have never dreamed of having white furniture for my son's room but I love how clean it looks(now if it will stay that way is a whole other story)This piece is called the Thomas Media Wall Hutch in Ana's plans.

This is the Cameron Cubby Wall Unit - but we altered it to make a nightstand with storage. This one was super easy!!

I love these - they work so great for organizing books. This was by far the easiest piece to make - great first time project!!! My kids love these and I have noticed them reading more because there books are so much easier to get to !!


  1. Great job! If I ever get around to building some of Ana's stuff...I would totally put beadboard for the backing. It looks really good. What's next?:)

  2. Thanks for your comments on my blog. You guys did an amazing job! I love it!!! The bed we are building is coming along nice, I am so excited too because now I am going to make one for me!

  3. I have to make the book holder thing! I love it! Plus my little one loves to read her books, all of those projects turned out really nice.

  4. great job!!!! you have inspired me to build build build :) love the book shelves! think that will be moved to the top of my list :)

  5. Great Job. I love her site too. I just have to jump in and do a project.!
