Bench Making 101
Pointing to a picture in one of my mail catelogs, I asked, "Honey, could you make this for me?"
"Well, I could" said he.
Ta~da!!! (coining a phrase from my friend, Annie...:)
He whipped this up in about twenty minutes and told me to let it sit in the Utility Room until the glue dried "good and strong."
Today, it was in the low 80's here and the glue was "good and dry" so I painted it...flat black, of course. Now I just have to scuff it up a tad with my hand sander and it will look aged...just like me! Then it will be placed in the hallway downstairs right near the door that leads to the patio.
One more thing. Because we'd been in the house in Virginia for nearly nine years, all the projects were done. Here...we are starting over. I mean...heck...we don't even have a lawn to mow (although we bought a little Toro self propelled number today). Anyway, today as I painted the bench, the Pres pulled pricker bushes up and placed them in one of our burn piles.
Meanwhile last night and today I emailed my friend, Mike and one of my bloggers who know just about everything there is to know about goats. My next endeavor? I want to borrow someone's goats to help clear our acreage. I just have to find a few.
Can you imagine what an awesome adventure that would be?
