Beautiful AND Budget-Friendly DIY Furniture Plans

I love all things Pottery Barn, but I love saving money even more! So, here are my favorite Beautiful, Budget-Friendly DIY Furniture Plans.

Budget-Friendly DIY Furniture Plans

Hi! Hi! Hi, guys! I’m part of a group of fantastically creative bloggers that get together every month to DIY something around a theme.

This month we all shared our Build It Cheaper Than Buying it Furniture. And, I get to share some of those great Beautiful & Budget-Friendly DIY Furniture Plans with you guys. Yay!

These plans are just a small example of some really fantastic ways you can save money building your own furniture. If you’ve always wanted to try woodworking. Go for it.

A couple of the bloggers in the group shared their first ever builds and they did a great job. And, only spent around $30 on the lumber.

The best part about woodworking is that you get better and better the more you build. So, it can be an affordable hobby that also helps you get a house full of furniture that you’ve actually made and love.

You can use plans you find online or have fun designing your own. I actually like designing furniture a little more than the build. Scroll to see some furniture ideas for your next (or first) build. 🙂

12 Beautiful and Budget-Friendly DIY Furniture Plans you should see! Most of these are woodworking plans for beginners. Yay! #AbbottsAtHome #Woodworking #WoodworkingPlans #FurniturePlans #DIYFurniture
