a coffee table. SO and I built a coffee table. From scratch.

The weather this summer is horrid. Every second day, it rains. We've been going out of our minds with cabin fever.

So, the other night, I off-handedly suggested that we build a coffee table (we've been without one since our cross-country move two years ago). The next day, we were in the car, headed to the lumber yard.

We finished the construction today and we're just waiting for a break in the rain to take it outside to sand and stain.

For two people with limited experience with power tools, I'm pretty proud of us. The table is solid and looks good. But, I've kinda caught a building bug. I've got our next four projects lined up

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Woo-hoo for new found carpentry skills!

And I agree...a pic would be fabulous!
