7 Creative DIY Furniture Ideas For One-Of-A-Kind Pieces
Do you ever get the feeling that everything at home seems fine and dandy, yet somehow something truly special is missing? That means it's time to spruce up your house! The best place to start is with the interior design, so here are 7 ideas for original pieces of furniture to inspire you and get you started on your home makeover.
1. DIY Relaxation Spot
Whenever you have a rough day and need to switch off for five minutes, it's important to have a place where you can relax in your home or garden. Thankfully, we have just the idea as our DIY relaxation spot is perfect all year round. Though mainly intended for your garden, the structure can be wheeled indoors for the colder months.

2. CD Mosaic Table
This little IKEA table, or variations of it, can be found in many homes, but it looks so generic when everyone has the same thing, right? Here is another chic and simple idea for making a true gem that looks great and requires hardly any material: a one-of-a-kind mosaic table! And the best part about it? You'll get rid of a couple of your old CDs in the process.
3. Photo Collage Table
Usually we hang our favorite photographs on the wall, but that's not the only place where they'll look good. A brilliant place to display some of your best memories is a coffee table with a homemade tabletop and your house guests will be excited to see if they've made the cut!

4. Homemade Wooden Coat Rack
The days are getting shorter and colder and you increasingly spend more of your free time inside than outside. This cozy idea will help you stave off boredom and create something practical at the same time. You can't help but admire something you've made with your own hands, and what's more, it's something sustainable you can use too! Get the full instructions here.
5. Planter Table
Everybody knows the small, square side table sold at IKEA. As chic and inexpensive as that table may be, it's also endlessly dull. But this can easily be changed in just four steps, using a little plastic wrap and soil, and you'll have your own beautiful planter table in no time! Because after all, why should your green thumb be restricted to the garden outside?
6. Concrete Stool
Making your own stool or side table doesn't take much — all you need is a bucket, three dowel rods, and some concrete. Does that sound a bit too easy? Well, it's not! It's a simple process and you can try out all sorts of different styles and heights to create a unique piece of furniture for your home! Get the full instructions here.
7. Glow-In-The-Dark Table
A table is a really simple piece of furniture, consisting of a flat surface supported on four legs. If you want to liven up this simplicity, then the following DIY project is exactly the one for you. It doesn't just add a stunning visual feature, but adds a particular effect that's only visible in the dark! Get the full instructions here.
