****Paint living room (Woohoo!)****

Soo... I thought I had blogged about my bench building.... I guess looking back, I just posted pictures on facebook, so here's a little background
The 'beginning'

I made both sides, all by my self

While I did that, Travis and his daughter put together the table saw... good thing, we needed it later!

Helping me cut the top of the bench (the seat?)

I was to cheep to go buy a 1''x12'', so we put two smaller pieces together.


It's sanded and stained... as soon as it dries, I'll start putting the final coats on it!


  1. Can I please have some of your energy? Or at least some non-90+ degree/% humidity days?

    I'd be exceedingly grateful for either.

  2. Can I have some of your energy too? Please.
    2 down 8 to go. You are working faster than I can read and keep up.

  3. GREAT JOB!!!! Will you post pics of the tutus too?
