A Place for Everything...
...and everything in its place. Right? Not so much, in this house. We're working on that, though! I've been hard at work on decluttering one day at a time. I really love the simple, daily tasks. I'm free to go on about my day when I'm done, but I often find that I'm so motivated that I keep right on cleaning!
Not the point of my post.
The point of my post is to say LOOK! Lookie what my hubby built! I found the plans on Ana White's blog (here), and within a week, the bench had materialized in my living room. Ok--maybe it didn't appear out of thin air. But it wasn't very complicated, either.
Building was simple, and took only a few hours spread over two afternoons. For the next few days, I took over. I filled holes one morning, and sanded them that evening. Each day this week, after putting the little guy to bed, I put on another coat of paint.
Last night, we finally got to "move in" to the bench!
It really turned out well, don't you think?
