The Handbuilt Home

You're going to spend almost as much time assembling that DAGSTORP from IKEA as you would if you just built what you wanted from scratch - so why don't you? The Handbuilt Home: 34 Simple, Stylish & Budget-Friendly Woodworking Projects for Every Room ($16) has easy-to-follow DIY instructions for building all sorts of furniture. Best of all, each project has a handy time allowance included in the instructions, so you know what you're getting into. That's something we'd like to see IKEA adopt: that dresser may only cost $40, but it will take you NINE HOURS to put together!
