I have read the blogs of Furniture DIY Queens with amazement & a slight sense of envy at these women. They seem to be constantly refurbishing furniture they found on the street or pimping out Ikea furniture ,& the result is flawless & unique decor on a budget.
I admit I have always wanted to be one of these DIY Queens. I have some basic carpentry skills, expensive taste but a Value Village budget so there has always been an appeal to “making my own furniture”. Time seems to be the only thing that was standing in my way.
This July I decided to take my first plunge into Furniture DIY & refurbish a cabinet I bought this past fall at a vintage shop. I’m proud of the final result but, it was not as easy as I thought! The experience did however inspire me to write my own DIY blog post in the popular format, with a twist of “real talk”.
