My Guide to a $5,000 or Less Wedding

My husband and I got married August 2014 and we had decided together that we didn’t want to waste our money on ONE (very important, but none the less, still one day) when we had our whole lives to spend together.

Pottery Barn Inspired Coffee Table – DIY

We found these plans over on Ana White, but they originally came from More Like Home. We did a little bit of modification with the drawers and made it with two instead of six. I wanted to put blankets and throw pillows inside, so 6 little drawers didn’t make sense for us.

You can find the plans here … More Like Home: Rhyan Coffee Table
