Homemade Modern

Member Since: 06/2012

'Affordable' and 'modern' mean different things to different people, but most would agree that durable, modern furniture isn't within the financial reach of many. At HomeMade Modern we want to provide affordable, modern home furnishing options without sacrificing design and your wallet. At HomeMade Modern our goal is to introduce ideas that aren't just about acquiring objects but about managing resources in a way that's useful and accommodates changing lifestyles. By providing easy-to-follow DIY recipes for creating modern home goods, we show that sturdy furnishings made from real materials like solid wood, concrete and steel can cost less than cheap, store-bought plastic and particle board furniture. HomeMade Modern was launched with the intent of participating in the mass dissemination of good design ideas, not the mass production of value engineered objects. Every project that we publish is created with the belief that design is about communicating how and why something should be made. We want to inspire and encourage people to create heirloom quality goods with naturally durable materials.


    • Looks great!  My daughter is moving into an apartment at college, and as soon as I show her this, I know that it will be something that we will be working on this summer.  Thanks!

    • This is the best and simplest shelf idea I've seen that a true beginner can use.  I'm going to try to incorporate it into my shop.

    • The copper is a great touch!
      By RYOBI Nation, on September 8, 2017

    • I made this!! Two in fact! I modified mine slightly in that I don't have the touch piece that comes out the side because I decided to use Phillips Hue candelabra bulbs instead. It was easy and fun to follow the steps.

    • I really like the clean look to crate #1. I'll put it on my to do list.
      By mrpip, on May 6, 2016

    • Wow, what a great step by step tutorial! Thanks for sharing this.
      By pinktoolgirl, on May 31, 2016

    • Great idea! Looks like you could easily scale this a little up a bit to make an excellent patio or deck storage bench. Use 2 x 12's and perhaps some added internal support in the middle to prevent any sagging and you'd have a great bench.

    • I will be looking to getting involved with this project. I like the natural beauty of wood. I can see just blending in a couple of different woods - yeahhh.

    • Where is the link to the plans for #1?

    • Its interesting of how they used multiple pieces instead of a 4x4.
      By Ted L., on February 16, 2016

    • Spot on for city dwelling, or any dwelling at that!
      By AlwaysAloha, on February 17, 2016

    • Nice idea for an outside bar.
      By Mtyman5477, on February 17, 2016

    • Original approach. Very unique and at a quick glance of the photos it looks almost like bamboo. You got my vote!
      By BigSexy, on February 22, 2016

    • thanks for designing one for us small apartment renters. I'm definitely going to give this a go!
      By stobor, on March 18, 2016

    • Nice. But no comment about the door support made of black pipe. Looks as to swivel to the side when not needed to help hold the "desk top " in place. That is most interesting. thanks
      By serviceis_13896, on March 18, 2016

    • Love the design, good job! I am building something similar and will include much of your design. Instead of the pipe and chains for support, I am planning to build a set of right angled triangles that mount to the wall on hinges. What do you think? Cheers, Jordan
      By JordanL, on March 18, 2016

    • this is something even I can make
      By sherrymontez, on March 19, 2016

    • @Ted L. - Maybe for looks and laminated is stronger than a single piece.

    • I love the clean look of this simple planter. I think it would really pop on a wooden dinning table.
