Having bought and sold a home, I completely understand how expensive the everyday maintenance can be. That’s why when I see a way to make something I already need and save little money, I’m all over it. Plus I’m a little crafty, so I enjoy painting and sewing whenever inspiration hits.
Every now and then I come across a few that truly mimic the look and quality of their expensive retail counterparts. I get really excited about those types of DIY’s! For example, this West Elm Bench cost $699 and Ursula of Homemade by Carmona creates an almost identical bench for under $15! When you can save that much money, it’s worth a little extra effort.
Don’t these benches look amazing?
