Lindsay from Makely School for Girls knew just the dresser she wanted for her daughter’s bedroom – mid-century modern style with clean lines and cool legs. The great news? She found EXACTLY what she had been envisioning at Crate & Barrel. The bad news? It was $1,600. Fortunately, there’s more great news!

Build Your Own Farmhouse Bed

Jennifer from Contemporary Harbor was tired of her old metal bed frame without a headboard and wanted a farmhouse bed to complete her bedroom set. She says, “I had always wanted a headboard and footboard that really made me feel like I had a grown up bed, and the Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed was perfect, but out of my price range.” Finally, Jennifer decided she had waited long enough. With the help of her hubby and Ana White, Jennifer built her own gorgeous farmhouse bed for under $200.

Cassandra from The Life of CK and Nate was over her scratch-and-dent, impossible to keep clean, and downright embarrassing dining room table. She went on a hunt for a new round table and came up with a couple of fabulous options from Restoration Hardware. Of course, that’s fabulous as in fabulous inspiration. Cassandra and her husband borrowed aspects from those lovely tables to design their own totally unique table complete with an octagon tabletop and six angled legs.

When the movers broke her dining room table, Jen from House of Wood’s first thought was to build a new one. She saw a gorgeous X-based table from ZGallerie and hit up her friend Ana White to draw up the plans. Then with a little more help from Ana and the friendly folks at Minwax, Jen gave her freshly built table a “rustic yet refined” Restoration Hardware-inspired finish. Are you drooling yet? Oh, and I think I forgot to mention the lumber was only $85. Just in case you weren’t already sold {Wink}.
