One of the easiest ways to free up some visual space in your home is to get things off the floor. Sometimes you can accomplish this by simply decluttering or finding furniture that pulls double duty, but it doesn't hurt to see what can be mounted to the wall. In this home it was their desk. The best part is it's 100% homemade and you can make one too!

Over at the C.R.A.F.T. blog they've been busy with some serious furniture construction. They started from scratch and documented every step along the way, which isn't always easy to do when taking on a project of this nature.

They started with a simple trip to the hardware store for common items and lumber. They went to work hammering, hanging and in the end staining the piece to give it a weightless look in the room. So take a look around your room and see if you have something that can be eliminated, condensed or even mounted to the wall. It's not as scary as you think!
