So, just a quick update with what has been going on with my life. My friend, Aimus, went thru her surgery with flying colors. Just like we all knew she would. She is back at home recovering and will be up and running around in no time. My husband was concerned, since they were rooting around in her brain, is she still gonna be the same? Her humor, her smile, the way she wrinkles up her eyes when she is getting ready to zing you with a sarcastic remark (which she is very good at, by the way.) Well, all you have to do is talk to her and she is exactly the same, minus some hair on the back of her head! She wasn't able to see out of her left eye right after surgery and it is still very dark, but it is slowly getting better. She had so many people praying for her and the doctors, this has all been a blessing and she is a miracle!
Sooooo, anyway, I have been having an itch that I need to scratch and I wanted to share it with you!
I know, it doesn't look like much, but I made it out of one of the MANY pallets that I have in my yard from all the bricks and stones that were put on my house. It was my first time using a sawsall and man, was that an awkward tool to use. Well, I then found out, that the blade was on backwards....no wonder it was such a pain in the rump to use! Geez! Anyway, I have this blog that I love to check out, called knock-off wood. She gives you very easy and simple plans to make furniture that you can make for a fraction of the cost. Seriously!
Seriously, I rave about this site to all of my friends when they say that they want new furniture, but can't afford it or find exactly what they want. "Just make it!", I tell them! So, for plans to the simple bench above, go to knock-off wood or just check out the blog, knock-off wood. You won't be disappointed!
