Beds, organizers, Adirondack chairs, a play table, and more! It’s easy to build inexpensive, quality furnishings with this indispensible collection of woodworking projects from Ana White, the popular blogger who has inspired millions of homemakers with her stylish furniture plans and DIY spirit. As a young mom on a tight budget, Ana learned to make her own well-designed pieces inspired by the styles in her favorite stores—saving thousands of dollars in the process.

Now, in this reference for woodworkers of all skill levels, Ana shares her favorite 34 furniture plans for every room in the house—from beginner-friendly home accessories to sturdy tables, a media center, kids’ items, and storage solutions. Her easy-to-follow instructions, costs, and time estimates will guide even the most amateur of carpenters through any project. Because as Ana knows, you don’t need to be physically tough or superstrong to make your own furniture, and it’s okay if you don’t know that a 2×4 doesn’t actually measure 2 by 4 inches. All you need is the determination to create a better home for yourself or your family and the confidence to say, “I can build that.”
