Oh poo, the bench is in the house....
Ok, so FINALLY this weekend I called the bench "done" enough to bring it in the house and start using it.
I started this project back in January.
I went out and purchased the lumber. It sat there. For WEEKS.
Then, one free weekend my husband gave me a crash course on the table saw and we got a LOT of it done.
It actually seemed to be coming together!
Then I primed it.
Then I went out and got the black paint and I got sick.
Time seemed to stand still on this project. I couldn't bring myself to clean the house, much less go into the garage and paint this bench.
But, I kept plugging on at it and finally I'm done.
Well kind of.
I still have to sand the plywood backing, paint it, poly it and nail it on.
I have to get the foam and sew the cushion cover on the top.
But really, it's nearly there.
Oh, and I still need baskets.
I've gone to about a hundred stores looking for baskets to fit the holes and my budget and it's been no luck. My husband warned me I should have got baskets first, then modified the plan to fit the baskets. I laughed at him. Silly man. Ross has about a million baskets I told him.
Yeah, Ross has been OUT of baskets the past month. Like there is some sort of basket shortage there or something. I found some at Target that will work, but I don't feel like forking over $15 per basket. UGH!
Have I said before he is a smart man and I should listen to him more?
I guess I'll never learn.
