A little project

Katie wanted to help me out last week and when our first project (finding and assembling the crib in the barn loft) fell through due to lack of hardware, I had to come up with something else.

There was a little table I had been thinking to make for our entryway and now seemed as good a time as any. So while Katie cleaned the shower (which had been bothering me for a while) I drew up the plans and cut the boards.

I finished cutting about the time she finished cleaning and together we  assembled the table.

Start to finish it took about two hours and supplies cost me nothing – just boards from a fence my brother took down and whatever screws I could scrounge. Amazing to me is that it sells for $100 on etsy. Felt like I had earned money that afternoon!

Here’s the whole entry way for perspective. Supposedly guests could put their shoes there. It was a fun little project.

    But in the meantime I’m sure your kids will find something else to put there :P
