Inspired by some of your favorite furniture stores like: Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, CB2, West Elm and Anthropologie!
Furniture is expensive folks. Like, really expensive. And most of us dream of something a little nicer than discount store particle board, don’t we? The big furniture chains make nicer pieces more accessible now than they have ever been, but they can still take a pretty nasty bite out of the checkbook. Lucky for us, there are some really talented bloggers out there. And even more lucky, those very same bloggers share their step by step tutorials for DIY’ing just about anything. Including expensive furniture. So get ready to make your home look amazing for a fraction of the price tag! These DIY furniture knock offs look just like some of the most popular pieces out there, but they aren’t! Which means, you wouldn’t pay those not so popular prices, right?
Our feature photos below, are from Cara at ‘Build It, Craft It, Love it’. We love how she aced the distressed wood finish of the table top. We fell in love with this very same table at West Elm, and she nailed this!
