I'm sorry for any troubles with the site. First and foremost, please check your spam folder for the password reset email.  If you still have trouble, send an email to anawhitesite@gmail.com with your username and email address, titled PASSWORD RESET and I will reply with a temp password.
My comments/posts aren't showing up.  Please help!
Because we have given freedom to anyone, and by anyone, I mean people trying to sell prescription drugs and give your computer viruses, we have to implement a spam system.  It is possible that your comments/posts are being recognized as spam.  I am very sorry, and do my best to look through spammed comments for those that are legit - but sometimes it takes me a day or two.
I sent you an email, but didn't get a reply.
I am SO sorry.  I appreciate you taking your time to write.  Thank you to those of you that write thank you emails - I do read and it makes my day! Sometimes I just go through incredibly busy times and emails get backed up.  With all sincerity, I do apologize. Keep bugging me :)
What happens to all that furniture you build?
I donate any unused furniture to local charities, and friends, family, people in need.  We try to find good homes for our pieces, since each one is very meaningful to us.
Can I advertise on your site?
To keep everything free on our site, I do work with advertisers.  At the moment, we only work with a small amount of large advertisers, as it is time consuming to create and write contracts and support these efforts.  
Can I post articles on your website?
If the intent of posting your article on our website is to include links to your product or website, it will be considered spam and promptly removed.  
For large businesses, please check out our media kit.  Thank you for your interest in keeping plans free on Ana-White.com.

I'm about to start building the Cabin Bunk System for my son but there seems to be a potion of the plans missing; the right side with the ladder. I've searched the site over several times and cannot find them. If they are still available or if anyone has a copy, can they be sent to me?

I was thinking about making my own dining room table, and love your Rekourt table.  My only problem: none of the dining room table plans you have are for extension tables - I have a large extended family and would like the ability to extend the table to seat 10-12 people.  Pottery Barn sells a similar table (the Livingston table) that is extendable.  You have mentioned in the past Osborne Wood as a source for table legs - and I noticed that they also sell table slides to make extension tables.  Do you think in the future you may provide a dining room table plan for an extendable table?  Would love to see it!

Dear Ana, 

 I desperately need your expertise. My daughter will be going to college at Ole Miss next year and needs a storage cabinet to hold the mini fridge/microwave combo and other things. Of course they’re limited on space in the dorms, and this cabinet will also serve as a nightstand for both girls and will sit between their loft beds. There is a company here in Mississippi that makes a cabinet like this, but they’re $900!!! I can’t afford $900. 
  I have scoured the Internet looking for plans, because I know a lot of parents just build something, but I’ve had no luck. I’ve even tried to find an armoire top or some kind of furniture I could convert, but no luck there either. 
  I have pictures and measurements of the $900 cabinet, and pictures and measurements of the fridge/microwave combo, and was wondering if you would be my savior, (and probably a lot of other parents’), and draw up some plans for a cabinet like this? 
  I tried desperately to find an email address for you, but had no luck, so I pray you see this post.

<p>Dear Ana,</p>

<p>Hi, I have a queen size wood&nbsp;headboard &amp; footboard connected with a metal bed frame with a mattress &amp; traditional box springs. What I want to do is remove the box spring &amp; metal bed frame &amp; replace with a wooden platform. I just have no idea how!! I want to do this so I can put a twin size trundle bed under it for when we have more company visiting. Now we have the twin size bed on it's side in what we call the "art studio/gym" room. The bed is in the "guest room", right now there isn't enough clearance to put a trundle underneath it. We have all the tools just not the design know how. I can send pics, dimensions.</p>

1. When I set up my account I screwed up typing my screen name. Can I change this somehow and I'm just not seeing it? Please and Thanks.

2.  With the YouTube simple house videos, the label says there are nine. It's only showing 6. Did you ever finish this hose? Are there videos available to see the rest of the process? Please and Thanks.

You recently updated the plans to the Outdoor Loveseat in the modern outdoor comfort collection. I was in the process of building the loveseat under the old plans but was using the website and never downloaded the plans. I am reaching out to see if it is possible to get a copy of the old plans as I have already cut the wood to begin the build. I can be reached at corey.ormsby@hotmail.com.

Thank you for the assistance!

I haven't been on the site for a month or more. When I logged on tonight I can only see two projects in my To Do list. I had a lot more than that. I searched and found one I know I had saved and had to re-save it. is there any way to recover all of them?

Looking at your “Simple Outhouse” plans, looks easy! :)

Question is that plans do not seem to include material or instructions for installing the plywood you sit on, the vertical piece that would be just behind your ankles when sitting or supporting braces required.

Can you please help me out with this?

Stay healthy,

Hi! Every time I click on "add a brag post," it says "this page cannot be found." I'm logged into my account, so I'm not sure that should be happening? Are you no longer accepting project brags? Just wondering! Thank you so much!

Dear Anna, noted that you have many "metric" subscribers

Do you intend to add metric alongside the inches in your drawings?

I am working with your kitchen drawings and need to re-calculate all the time. By the way I have

ajusted these and am adding kick-toe drawers. Could be a nice addition for you

Do you by any chance plan on building or could you design an Adirondack rocking chair?

Would love to make one just don’t know exactly on how to go about it. 

Keep up the awesome job!

I just added a brag post and all my pictures loaded upside down! Can I delete or can you delete the post?  I have no idea why or how they turned 180 degrees!

Someone was selling a table/desk on Craiglist and I was not able to go get it but it was absolutely lovely and I was hoping you could design something like it. I don't see a way to attach photos or I would. It was kinda like your Brookstone desk but the top could be folded out and additional legs came out from the side to form a dining table. If you email me with a way to send the photos I will try.

Thank you for your time.

I've watched several of your videos, and I was wondering what design software that you use to draw your designs?

Hey, Ana!  I’m very interested to learn more about how you got started as an influencer.  I love your site and your work.  My kids and I have a small business making wood crafts and furniture.  We want to create a better presence in order to grow our income and business.  God has been so good to us, and we are looking for some help.  Please message me when you have time. Thanks.

I have tried several time to submit a brag post but the pictures show up “upside down”!  I have also tried submitting the photos starting with them upside down and they still show up upside down!

what am I doing wrong?


Wed, 12/16/2020 - 10:42

are making your site broken. Links don't work, downloads don't work and site does not render properly.

While I understand that the ads help make money, there comes a point in time when people who love your site and work, will just stop visiting because it's a hassle to read anything or get free plans.

I wish you would rethink the NUMBER of ads and inserted videos you have in your website and focus a bit more on correct links and proper pdf downloads.

Absolutely love all that you do - but the ads are becoming a serious pain in the butt.

Hey Ana, what is the tool that you use that you can change between a router and a table saw?

<p>I need the original plans for the simple white sofa. are these available somewhere or is the updated version it keeps linking to a better design? &nbsp;I am trying to build onto my sofa and make it a sectional and the new plans would look different than the original. please help</p>

Hi Ana

thank you

Question regarding shelf-help...

How long (in general) is the wait time between placing an order and receiving the material?  We are building our home and want to make sure we have the cabinets when it is time to put them in.

Thanks :)

Someone on Etsy, going by DigitalTutoriaStudio, is selling pdfs of your plans (specifically the Farmhouse Potting Bench). They posted the exact photos from your website. Hate to see you get cheated for doing all the hard work and not get credit.

Hi Ana,

Your website is one of my top go-tos when I'm looking for a project or information. One problem, however, is that when I do a search for a particular project, the search results are often vast and not relevant. For example, when I searched for bathroom storage, I got everything from cabinets (definitely useful!) to vegetable bins. Sometimes there will be several pages for me to sort through.

A suggestion: would your web designer be able to tighten the parameters of a search? 

Thanks for offering soooo much info. So much to do....
