If You Like Me, You'll LOVE Them

Monday, September 15, 2014
Being a blogger, I kinda feel like its my job to read other blogs and stay up on what's new (that's what I tell my husband anyways). I often get asked which blogs I follow. I follow a wide mix of different blogs; some DIY, some craft, some home design, and a couple recipe. When it comes to DIY and furniture, I have my standbys that I make sure to read everyday.

I thought you all might appreciate learning about these talented ladies. Make sure to stop by their blogs, and prepare to be inspired! 

Ana White is the queen of furniture blogs. She has inspired thousands of women to pick up a hammer and start building. She is epic! On her site, you can search through hundreds of clear, easy to follow furniture plans, for FREE. She provides everything you need to get started, plans, shopping list, and even a cut list.

I absolutely adore The Painted Hive! Kristine has fabulous taste in furniture and design. Not only does she refinish and build amazing furniture, but she takes some of the prettiest photos in the industry. You need to check her out!

That's My Letter is a blog I've followed for a loooong time. Jaime is one of the sweetest ladies in blogland, and builds like a boss. In addition to providing furniture plans and project tutorials, she also offers small sewing projects. I'll admit, I'm not the biggest fan of sewing, but Jaime inspires me to bust out the sewing machine from time to time. 

Want to spend hours upon hours browsing through beautiful, free furniture plans? Well, you can do exactly that at The Design Confidential. I want to be the author, Rayan one day. I took a Google Sketch-Up class from her at SNAP, and have been in awe ever since. She has designed hundreds of furniture plans. If you want to build contemporary, or Mid-Century furniture, The Design Confidential is the place for you.

Odds are pretty good that you've seen some of Jen's work floating around on Pinterest. She is way cooler than me (a professional singer and songwriter), and has built some pretty sweet furniture. I always get excited when I see she has a new post. 

Are these women amazing or what? Stop by, check out these bloggers and you will totally be ready to pick up a power tool. 

Let's be friends! Follow along, so you never miss a post



  1. I've poked around Ana's site, but the others are new to me. Ana is pretty dang awesome. Of course, you're pretty fly, too. :P


  2. Oh no, more awesome sites to keep me in front of the computer :-) It's a challenge to get away from looking at all the cool things I *could* build and actually go *build* something, lol.


  3. Elisha so nice of you to include me in your round up - great to be among such lovely and awesome women. Cheers to more building!

  4. Oh goodness you are so sweet to include me! I'm honored to be included in such a great roundup! Thank you!
