  • Liz

    I am planning to make a farmhouse style dining table

  • JMJ4Life

    What Impressed most about this show is, these young ladies have shown that with imagination and creativity, you can accomplish home improvement on a budget.

  • Britt

    My husband and I have neglected our bedroom and buying furniture for it because we want our kids to have enough. Instead of buying it, we came up with the crazy idea to make it. Sure, it might cost more to make, but it’ll be something fun that we can do together. As I look through the free plans you offer, it’s making me so excited to start our project!

  • Caroline N

    It’s so hard to pick what to do, but my 10 year old is really into changing his room to a “teenager” room and is really into the industrial look, so I would have to say a reclaimed wood headboard with wall sconces attached for reading. Thanks!

  • Sandi D

    Bathroom vanity as we are remodeling. Thanks!

  • Jennifer DeWitt Giordano

    My sister really needs a new dining room table, so I would probably do that first. Then a new coffee table for my living room. The furniture store ones have never been my favorite. Too boring and no character!!
