DIY vs. Hire a Furniture Builder

You can DIY just about any type of furniture. At worst, you’ll have to redo the entire project. Since anyone can source inexpensive materials, you’re mostly out the time you put into it. If you plan to go the DIY route, pro’s advise starting with a small home accent furniture piece. Something like an end table that won’t take a lot of money or time. Keep in mind that your first try may not look quite up to store-bought standards. If you need a large project done correctly, quickly and finished professionally the first time, hire a local furniture builder.
