Classing up my Living Room

Submitted by Corina on Wed, 05/18/2011 - 08:26

This was my very first build! I am very happy with the results and I am so proud to have made such classy yet practical pieces of furniture. My living room has gone from being overrun by children to a comfortable, organized space for all.

I certainly learned alot on my first build. I learned that I hate gel stain, that I will now pledge my undying love to the mighty Kreg Jig, and that building furniture is addictive. I will be making so many more projects, I have at LEAST 5 more pieces planned. I think I will never buy furniture again (except maybe upholstered furniture).
