A couple of weeks ago I shared the end table cart I made entirely from 2×4’s for my family room. I needed the extra depth to store all my media components and a couple of blankets that had no home. It only cost $20 in wood to build plus $15 for the casters and hardware.
This little beauty was inspired by the industrial hallway cart I had previously made from 2×4’s for only $18 to fit my narrow entryway.
I adore both of these pieces and was inspired to find more DIY furniture projects that use only 2×4’s. They are sturdy and super cheap, which makes them perfect for building furniture! I found a few projects that include complete woodworking plans, including an adorable way to use up all those scraps. Enjoy!
Over at Jay’s Custom Creations you can find this “pure 2×4 project” to make your own set of barstools. The cost was just over $20 for the pair, which you can’t even come close to at a retail store!
More Like Home shares the project plans for this wooden storage crate that was built entirely from 2x4s. I love that this storage solution is stylish but also completely functional. I plan on making a few of these and adding a seat on the top!
I adore this farmhouse bench that Natalie of The Creative Mom made for less than $20. The combination of dark stain and white paint is swoon-worthy, and I can think of so many uses for this budget-friendly bench. The entryway, dining room, kitchen…
Are you short on storage and counter space in your kitchen? Sabine from Mom in Music City shows us how she solved that problem by building a kitchen island from 2x4s. Would you believe it only cost her $30?!?
Now, after you build all these awesome 2×4 projects, the question is what to do with the scraps? Follow Jen’s tutorial at The House of Wood to make this stylish hexagon planter!
Don’t these projects make you want to pick up some 2×4’s at the hardware store this weekend?!?
