So I myself love the idea of building and creating my own home decor. However it has to make sense financially. It's one thing to find a free piece of furniture that needs a little clean up and paint. But its a whole other thing to buy all new wood and fabric and all the other materials to build a king bed, when you can find one for under 500$. Always be sure to price compare building vs buying before making the decision. You would be surprised at some of the deals you can find out there!
