As much as I love the ways we’ve prettified and decorated our Handmade Home, I’d have to say it’s the functional changes that have made the most significant improvements. Our house isn’t that big, but we squeeze every inch of space out of it.
Here are five of the most popular space-saving DIYs I’ve completed over the last couple of years of My Handmade Home . . .
Cut an end table in half to get two nightstands (that take up less room than bulky store-bought ones).
This is a quick project if you have a circular saw handy. Just draw a straight line down the middle of an end table and saw it in two. Then you can paint or stain the two skinnier tables and secure them to the wall.
Down the road if you don’t need the nightstands, try screwing them together and stacking them to make a unique bookcase.
