DIY Furniture-Knock Off Wood

I've been following this blog for a while and just LOVE it!  It's put together by Ana and called Knock Off Wood.  She takes things she sees in stores like Pottery Barn, West Elm, Land of Nod, and other stores, and makes the plans and a shopping list of supplies so you can make your own pieces for WAY less!  Here are some examples of her plans and finished project!  Be sure to go over and check out her awesome site!

This hutch as seen in Canadian House and Home was the inspiration for the plans for the hutch below!

This is what the finished piece will look like, go here to see the full list of instructions, supplies and everything else you need to get started!

These are some of my favorite shelves from Pottery Barn Kids, but at a hefty price tag of $900, not always affordable!

Ana shares the plans and finished shelves with us...and the best part is that she spent only $60!  She's a genius!!

Worried about not being able to build these pieces?  Check out her newly created Flickr Gallery to see what people just like you have been building with her plans!  I can't wait to get back into a house so I have a garage to build some new furniture in!

Just last night I told my husband I want to build her puzzle book case with his help. I love, love, love her site.

I wish we still lived right by each other so we could build some furniture together!!!
