So...the idea came to me awhile ago.....
I don't scrap book, I don't sew (yet - even though I have a "brand new 6 year old" sewing machine), BUT I can build. And thanks to Ana White and her generosity, I can't tell you how empowering it is to be able to build something - exactly what you need, and have an amazing piece of furniture you can actually afford. This is what I wanted to pass along to my friends...because I think that we are all capable of much more than we can sometimes imagine for ourselves.
So....here they are! Ready with their boards to make an amazing Spa Bench!
We got right to work cutting....
Nailing (personally, my favorite tool!)
Didn't she do a GREAT job?!
Having some fun...
These girls mean business!
Ready to stain.....
We had so much fun talking (and talking, and talking...), so we didn't get to staining all together, but seriously
LOOK at their benches! They look GREAT!!!
I'm pretty proud of them and can't wait to see how they look after they are complete with their stains. Nice work ladies and thanks for the fun day!
......after they took off (since I was the "teacher" and "helping") I was seriously itching to build something myself...just a quick little something. Being from Seattle, that kind of reminds me of a shot of coffee. :-)
Anyway, I took some of their scraps, a couple of boards, and a super cute pull and put this together (fyi - it's a false drawer).
It's not completely done, but I think it's kind of cute. What do you think?
