Carpenters in the Making

February 28, 2013

Pete and I have taken it upon ourselves to build some of the furniture for our home. After successfully completing Project #1, a side table for the living room, we agree that it was an awesome decision. Not only does Pete get to use tools (and purchase some for that matter), but it's a great way for us to bond while working on a mutual interest. Plus, we love that our table is original to us and no one has one like it. We imagined what we wanted in a side table, came up with measurements, bought the wood, cut the wood down to size, screwed it all together, and stained it. Now it's nestled between the couch and chair, like it's always been there.

Even if we aren't skilled carpenters yet, we're working on it. Next is a dining room table and some accompanying bench seating!
