Have you guys heard of Ana White? Lest you are living under a rock, let me give you the inside scoop. Ana White is an amazing do-it-yourself blogger and the creator of free plans to build your own furniture. In fact, she even came out with her very own book of furniture designs.
Called The Handbuilt Home, no less.
Matt requested a copy of her book for his birthday last March. As his good and faithful wife, I had no choice but to order it for him. Furniture plans? Beds not made of old doors but by Matt’s own hands?
Sign me up.
So after a few months of idle wait time (also known as the time he put up the board and batten in the dining room, added trim and quarter round, in addition to completing a dozen other small projects while also working full-time on the night shift and attending classes at KU), Matt finally pulled out his book and is getting started. Up first: simple play kitchen.
For his princess on her birthday, of course.
And when I say his princess, I mean Cora Jane.
