DIY Furniture Knock Offs

Inspired by some of your favorite designer furniture stores like: Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, CB2, West Elm and Anthropologie! Furniture is expensive folks. Like, really expensive. And most of us dream of something a little nicer than discount store particle board, don’t we? The big furniture chains make nicer pieces more accessible now than they have ever been, but they can still take a pretty nasty bite out of the checkbook. Lucky for us, there are some really talented bloggers out there. And even more lucky, those very same bloggers share their step by step tutorials for DIY’ing just about anything. Including expensive furniture. So get ready to make your home look amazing for a fraction of the price tag! These DIY furniture knockoffs look just like some of the most popular pieces out there, but they aren’t! Which means, you won’t pay those not so popular prices, right?

Knockoff West Elm Emmerson Dining Table

Our first project below is from Cara at ‘Build It, Craft It, Love it’. We love how she aced the distressed wood finish of the table top. We fell in love with this very same table at West Elm, and she nailed this! West Elm has a very similar outdoor dining table as well. You can check out our list for Best Outdoor Furniture Brands & Stores over at TGG.

    Looking for ideas on making a small Cocktail Lounge instead a if a Living Room. Working with a small budget as well.
    Was hoping you could give me inspritation.
    The room is open to my entryway & I have one large window that takes up another wall. I really only have 2 walls & about 3 feet on entry side. Room is about 13 x 15.
    Your expert advice would be greatly appreciated.
    I had in mind a Chabby Chic or SpeakEasy style. But that could change. Thanks
