DIY Shaker Bench

I've been feeling the itch to build something lately.  I moved the furniture around in my bedroom and with the extra space I created, it was time to build a bench for the foot of my bed.





Creating My Dream Dining Room for less than $500


I'm so happy with my newly redecorated dining room! The black and white scheme makes the wood furniture the focal point which is what I wanted.  Now this space fits my cottage decor beautifully and is a look I am happy with.


I began accumulating furniture for the dining room when I first moved in. The furniture I had already was minimal and not really my taste - without a huge budget, I took my time choosing the right pieces for the right prices by buying second hand furniture.
