I found this old headboard at the Deseret Industries for $8. I brought it home and Steve said, "What is that? It looks like something from the Brady Bunch."
So it sat in our basement for a month or so. I stopped asking Steve if he'd help me with it because he kept laughing at me.
One day, he came home and handed me $30 and said, go get the stuff and I'll build it WITH you.
So, we did! And it was fun. I mean it helps that his dad has all the equipment you'd ever need to build things. But Steve & his dad kept making fun. And I kept telling them, "You're going to like my bench and you're going to want to sit on it.
So about $30 into it and that's what we came up with!
It doesn't quite fit in our kitchen like I thought it would (color wise), so I may end up using it somewhere else. But I love it! And Steve even got excited about it. When will he ever trust that I have a picture of something in my mind that will be absolutely FABULOUS?
Now I just need to get a picture of Steve & his dad sitting on it. ha!
