My name is Shannon, I blog over at Posh Pieces. I am thrilled to be here at Remodelaholic again sharing another project with you all. Thanks Cassity!
I was ready for my next building project, and had been eying this bench for a while. Ana has the plans on her site to build something practicably the same, so I decided to give it a whirl.
First step is to take inventory of what lumber you have. The plans didn’t call for a whole lot of supplies, and I was lucky enough to have some of it on hand already. I ran to the lumber store for the remaining supplies.
Lumber Store Tips
- Put your kids in one of those car shopping carts if they are small enough. It will save you from chasing them down the lumber isle as well as buy you some time at the store.
- Having your kids with you, and being female (assuming your female and going without a male) you will be asked at least 10 times if somebody can help you. 🙂 Let them, it can save you some time.
- Sort through the wood and chose the boards that are not cracked, or warped.
