Not very long ago, I noticed a new blogger in town. Ana White was into building in a big way. I was completely baffled at the things she was making all on her own, right down to building her own HOUSE.
So I invited her to my link party and we became fast friends. But as it turns out, she didn’t need help at all because this girl’s success basically exploded overnight.
Ana became known for her easy to follow building plans she drew herself which she offered for FREE, then implemented, to prove one didn’t have to break the bank in order to have new furniture.
And then Ana’s fans finally got their wish. Ana wrote…
Guys, this is one amazing go-to reference book. You won’t believe how well laid out these tutorials are. And how many there are! It’s a super thick book!
What does the book hold?
There are 34 tutorials on creating furniture from scratch using basic lumber found at the hardware store. From mirror frames to major pieces of furniture, there are projects for everyone and is taught in such a way that anyone can make and afford them.
Is it easy to follow?
Totally. The book is downright pretty. The graphic design is clean, and colourful.
I love how these projects above are colour coded for easier reference.
There’s even a rating system on difficulty, cost and how long it takes to whip up a project. Love that.
Each project starts off with a pretty header, then the supplies.
Each tutorial comes with a 3D simulation of the project, a photo of the finished project as well as the entire build. It is VERY thorough.
And guess what… not all these projects are built by Ana. She’s incorporated so many gorgeous projects from bloggers you know and love! Recognize anything here? I sure did!
Prefer things rustic?
You know me. I was wondering how I’d fit into a book with new builds.
… and then I flipped the page and found this. Of course! You can choose to make your wood look old or go ahead and use old wood if you wish!
Want staging ideas?
The book is loaded with them. It’s really like a high end catalogue with plans.
So what if you don’t build?
Well, the way Ana breaks things down, I’m a serious believer that you can. And she thinks so too. The book was created for all skill levels. Everything is taught in ABC format and plain english. I cannot wait to try a project myself!
Would you like to make this bench? It’s online, straight out of the book right HERE!
Ana, your book is gorgeous! Congrats! And there’s only one con to the whole deal. That you aren’t here in person so I can give you a high 5.
Where to buy?
Any major bookstore or online outlet.
