8. DESIGNATED DROP ZONE
This project was way overdue. We don’t have a mudroom, so our coats and bags and various winter wear overwhelmed our front door. These coat hooks definitely helped calm the clutter.

No mudroom? No problem! Make this easy DIY organized entry! www.jenwoodhouse.com/blog

7. LIGHTED WEDDING MARQUEE
I made this lighted marquee for my sister’s wedding last Spring with just a few supplies from the craft store.

3. DIY BEDSIDE TABLES – A Jen Woodhouse Original!
This was my very first furniture design! When I broke our store-bought bedside tables, I designed and built these to replace them. We love the extra space and that shallow shelf keeps the books, magazines, and clutter off the top.

2. RESTORATION HARDWARE-INSPIRED BALUSTRADE COFFEE TABLE
My friends at Osborne Wood worked with me to create the beautiful turned legs for this coffee table. I liked it so much, I built two: a rectangular one for my parents’ house and a square one for our living room.
