In this collection of Fantastic Furniture: 24 DIY Furniture Ideas, there are many different projects of all types to choose from. DIY furniture is a fairly broad category. It can mean creating a table, cabinet, bookcase, chair, couch, or countless other pieces of furniture from scratch, which is certainly impressive. Creating pieces of furniture from scratch is definitely near the top of the list for what probably every DIYer hopes to achieve in their do-it-yourself adventures.
However, refinishing, repurposing, and improving pieces of furniture are also very impressive skills at any level. If you are just starting out with DIY, then you are in for a treat. If you are a seasoned pro, then you are just as welcome because these DIY projects range from simple to advanced in skill level.
In this collection, the furniture project subcategories include bookcases, shelving, chairs, desks, side tables, and nightstands. Some of the decoration ideas you will see in this collection involve painting, distressing, sewing, woodworking, art, and more. A lot of creativity and innovation are the two key ideas behind these projects. We know you are up for the challenge; so, let's get started.

DIY Bookcase and Shelf Ideas
Beautiful bookcases! The beauty of bookcases is that they can be used for far more than books. A good nook for your books is important, but there are so many more opportunities for a bookcase in your space. The same thing goes for DIY shelving. This is where your creativity and inventiveness comes into play. Use these shelves to hold knick-knacks, plants, games, toys, or turn them into drink stations. The DIY projects you will find below will impress anyone who walks into your room.
The Children's Numbered Bookcase is perfect for a kid's playroom and teaches them how to store their toys and books in the proper places.
The possibilities for decorating your room are endless! Regardless of your design tastes and budget, you can find the right crafts for you from this list of 20 DIY Room Ideas
Creative Chairs! Now, here's a category that has endless opportunities. Next time you drive past an abandoned chair at the end of a driveway, turn around and pick it up. You can refinish and reupholster almost any chair to become even better than new. You can even upcycle more than the chair, for example, using an old pair of jeans to reupholster an old chair seat.
Beyond that, check out the How to Dye Fabric Slipcovers tutorial so that, if you can't fix a chair or couch, you can cover it with beautiful slipcovers dyed to your color of choice.
In this collection you'll find must-make projects for every room in your house!
Wait there's more: Darling Desks! Even if you don't work from home, having a desk in your home is helpful. It's a great place to write, work on your computer, or (our favorite) craft! If you do work from home, then having a space that helps you stay focused and organized will in turn help you do a better job. These DIY desks are inexpensive ways to get that desk you need without custom ordering it. Improve an old or basic desk or create a makeshift one out of everyday materials (see the innovative DIY Laptop Stand).

DIY Nightstands and Side Table Ideas
What else do you need? We all have or need a lot of surfaces in our homes because they are so useful. A table is one of the best places to set flowers or nice pieces of home decor. Also, no one wants to hold their glass the entire time they are sitting on the couch or chair. Nightstands are particularly necessary for alarm clocks, lamps, and phones.
But, the most important thing is that we want these tables to be more than just functional. They should be a piece of interior decor that helps tie the room together. The following DIY projects will certainly do that. With all of these WOW-worthy table ideas, you're sure to find something you'd love to make and display in your home.
Now that you've got some fantastic furniture pieces, you need some organization ideas to perfect your home. Whether you are getting organized as a New Year’s resolution, want to hide your miscellaneous items with cute and stylish storage ideas, or simply want to clean up your space, you are sure to find the organization project you need in this collection.
