Plywood is an inexpensive lumber option for building just about anything. Problem is, traditionally its been thought of as kinda… well, ugly. Boring. Cheap. Well we have some news for you… not anymore. In fact, plywood is even being used in high end modern homes for paneling and cabinets! So let’s revisit the idea of using it as a way to save money while making an awesome DIY… Plywood projects with pizazz!

This one sheet plywood bench project is from ‘Instructables’, and looks like a high end modern furniture piece, made with some exotic wood! Seriously? One sheet of plywood can make this?

From ‘Gonzalez Design Studio’, this DIY plywood bed has plenty of photos for an experienced DIY’er to take inspiration from, but unfortunately no written tutorial. But what a perfect piece for a small home!

This L- shaped modern desk was done by a reader of ‘Ana White’… We believe it’s an adaptation from her free plan for this corner desktop.

Our next project is from ‘Hege in France’. This DIY plywood shelf is modern and fresh, and makes for extra storage in any room.

These DIY planked floors from ‘House Seven’ show just how amazing this building material can be! They took the tutorial at ‘Little Green Notebook‘ to make these floors, and they can be proud of this project!

Lovin’ this DIY plywood floor mirror from the show ‘Home Free’ on Fox.  Remember to buy a quality mirror  piece. Cheap mirrors tend to be distorted. I promise, nothing looks good in a distorted mirror!
