Do it yourself

My TV console is almost done.  Obviously it is still missing the top piece and needs to be painted but I am very happy with the results so far.  I had an original set of plans for this but made some mistakes and modifications along the way.  Funny thing is the notes in the plans indicated this should not be made as your first piece of furniture.  

I cut, nailed, screwed, and sanded every piece myself and there is a great sense of accomplishment that comes with hand making something from start to finish.  Now I have a few other ideas floating in my head so when this is done I'm sure I will be on to another project. 

There is nothing you cannot DIY.

  4. Holy cow! That is amazing! I was just talking with a friend of mine and saying how much I wished I was more confident as far as building things go. I would love to build bookshelves or cubbies but find myself petrified.
