    I could use plenty of storage lol.. seems like my stuff keeps growing and I have no way to put’em. Great idea, love it! Just curious? Where do you get your lumber from?

    • CherTexter

      Awesome, Vinma! I usually buy everything I need at my local Home Depot (just my own personal preference). The materials should be available at any home improvement store. If you need help, let me know!

      Thank you, Elle! I still wish I could build every piece of furniture I draw but I’d have nowhere to put it!
