Re-purpose an old cabinet into a study desk by adding a foldaway desk, just like the ones we used to have back in elementary school. Using a chain to hold it and clasps to close it.

2. A place to rest for all

Bunk beds are popular for small spaces. And, it is easy to make — all you need are strong pieces of wood, screw, hammer, and table saw. Of course, since people are going to be sleeping here, make sure that it is strong enough to hold people. Safety first, as we say here on homify!

3. Functional kitchen furniture

If you have space in the kitchen, why not create a kitchen storage cabinet like this one! This may take a little more time (or you may need the help of experts), but outcome makes it all worth it. 

4. The bed with canopy

Here's a romantic idea for the bedroom. Why not craft four-poster in it, and then add some white curtains as canopy?

5. Fun wall and ceilings

You can add a little creativity to the children's bedroom by making fun wood cut-outs like the clouds and the  sun in this photo. And then make it glow by adding some lights behind it. Keep the kids safe by consulting with professionals for this particular project.

6. Rack Versatile

Teach children about organization early on by putting a custom-made shelf in their room. The shelf can be used to store toys and school supplies in plastic containers or paper boxes. To make sure the piece you make is child-proof, make sure you consult a professional for this one. 

7. Kitchen storage

You can still add shelves to the kitchen even if you don't have enough space, just take cue from this project. The small and narrow shelf is not just a stylish and functional addition to your area, but easy to make, too!

8. Furniture recycling

Recycle old materials such as an old door and turn them into a coffee table (exactly like the one in this photo) or even a table!

9. Playhouse

11. Supplementary garden

Place your plants in wooden boxes instead of the usual pots! It's stylish and can accommodate more plants. Another great addition are those wooden panels, which can be used a plant hangers.

12. Doors

You can always have a door installed if you want to divide rooms! 

13. Furniture bedroom

If you need more storage space in the bedroom, why not add a headboard that doubles as drawers and cabinets? It's chic and a space-saver!

14. The bed drawers

Have an extra closet you don't use? Turn it into a seating area! It can be the perfect spot, where one can spend some quiet afternoons with a good book.
