Ana White’s The Handbuilt Home Book {Giveaway}

I’m SO excited to tell you about my friend Ana White’s new book – The Handbuilt Home. Ana is one my DIY-ing heroes. She’s just a normal mom and homemaker who taught herself how to build beautiful furniture on a dime. Yeah, I pretty much adore her!

Have you seen this book? Oh my word, y’all. It is amazing!

I love how Ana goes room by room and shows how to easily—and inexpensively—make high-style furniture from scratch using only basic tools and lumber that can be purchased at my local hardware store. This book has projects {large and small} to furnish your entire home with looks you love. And you won’t break the bank doing it.

When The Handbuilt Home arrived, I couldn’t put it down. Ana’s stylish talent paired with beautiful photography is both inspiring and empowering.

Ana is currently on a book tour. She may be coming to a Home Depot store near you!

Click here for free plans for the Farmhouse Bench – a popular project from the book. It’s fabulous!

I’m excited to have a copy of The Handbuilt Home to give away to one of y’all! :)

    To win her book would be amazing! I am in awe of her and the people who go ahead and build stuff using her plans. I haven’t made the leap yet (out of fear) but would love her book to inspire me to make that jump! :)

  2. Jennie Shellenberger says

    Her website is amazing! But to hold her book in my hands to peruse would be just as amazing! To me, there’s just something about paper books as opposed to the internet (and I love the internet!). So I would love to win this book! Thank you!

  3. Tan says

    Hello, I would really love to win this book!! I do not have a website or anything. I am just starting to learn and trying to do things on my own. I have always had my brother taking care of my home and fixing for me. He passed away and I have had to learn to do it on my own. AS I started doing on my own and I noticed I am wanting to learn more I started doing very small projects such as wreaths and bottles. Would love to learn this so I can expand my knowledge and learn lot things! I am still overwhelmed and not sure about lot things. Thank you!!! Please enter me in this contest. Thank you!

    I first found out about Ana when we lived in Mexico and couldn’t find our style of furniture in the stores, so we built it with Ana’s help!

  34. says

    Hi there,
    Please enter me in your drawing for Ana White’s Book. I had not heard of her before, but she sounds like a woman after my own heart. I am the original DIY’er. Everything in my long term apartment is repurposed and painted. I am expanding my skills to use more tools. Would love to try my hand at her building projects. Thank You!

  35. says

    I would love to have this book! We are waiting out on buying a new bed until we have enough saved…. this would eliminate that waiting period!

  36. Kim says

    I would be so very, very, very, very, very, very, very (times a million) happy to have this book. My fiancee and I would love to start building some projects together for our new house and our new life together!

  37. Julie says

    I am so excited about this book! I just got married this year and am trying to make our house our home. I am hoping to try out as many projects as possible and tell others about it! Thank you for considering me!!

  38. Kim G says

    This book looks amazing and I just “favorited” her website. Our house is barren because good furniture is just too expensive!

  39. Brenda says

    What a delight it would be to showcase this book on my coffee table ! It would be such splendid read to have to view over & over again, gathering inspiration, tips, & directions on how to frugally build so many of those items we swoon over when we try to make our houses a home ! thanks for the chance to cross my fingers & pray :)

  40. Cathy says

    I’m going outside now… camp by the mailbox…..until you pick me as the winner of this book and it arrives at my house!!

    Thanks ANA


  42. marna says

    Wow, I don’t know how you’re going to pick someone:) I’m a young wife in her first home and 3 months pregnant – for the first time! I’ve never had the confidence to make things myself, so I would love to grow in that so that I can a) create a home space for my family and friends to feel nurtured in and b) to pass on that confidence and ability to my kids!

  43. Rebecca Thomas says

    I used Ana’s Farmhouse table plans last year when my family of 7 outgrew our kitchen table. It is so nice to have a solid table, and was fun to build! The bench is next so we don’t have to have so many chairs around it!

  44. Blue says

    I “want to be entered. Easy peasy!” I would love to receive a book like this! PS: tho, if I did win, you may give it to someone who is equally deserving but maybe even more financially challenged! that would give me even more happiness to be part of more goodness! God Bless!

  45. Monica says

    I have been looking at her site for months, wondering if I could do any of her projects. If I had her book in hand I would have no more excuses.

  46. Nancy P says

    I want to be entered into this contest. With the guidance/instructions in this book, I know I could build something.
