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! :)
