I love the idea of DIY furniture… being able to make something from scratch, or take something old and making it something very new.
It’s nice to be able to look at a piece of furniture with pride, knowing that you made it yourself and that nobody in the world can have a piece that is exactly the same.
I hope you are enjoying this collection of DIY furniture projects so far. As we enter the final stretch, I feel like we might have saved some of the best for last!
