I "Built" it myself...

One of these days, I'll have enough money to buy furniture that comes ready-made.  Until my ship comes in, I'll continue to have furniture "I built myself", which sounds a whole lot better than furniture with "some assembly required."  It's a good thing I have a handy engineer for a husband and two girls that are more than eager to "build" with me.

My latest room to improve?  The sewing/crafting/leftover furniture room.  It's in the middle of being transformed into an actual room with function and design rather than just hodge-podge.  Before, I had to sew in that teeny-tiny corner while sitting on a tiny-tiny stool with no lighting for my teeny-tiny eyeballs.


And, my worktable doubled as a bed:

The bedspread had to come off just in case my scissors slipped while cutting...

Yes, I always "build" furniture in my pj's while my "hired help" goes shirtless...

"See, Haley, you turn, turn, turn the bolt just like this."

Needless to say, I can't wait to sew on my new table I "built myself" along with some help from my girls.  The matching chair is on order.  Any bets on how many steps are involved in its construction?

On another note, any ideas on the wall color?   My awesomely hilarious sister has volunteered to help paint once we both have time.

I am driving to texas right this very minute to TAKE those stools from you.


(Oh, and the table is adorable too!)
