I know...I know. It's been ages since my last post. I had every intention of blogging as soon as we moved from California to Utah, but obviously never got around to it. Let's just say it was an awesome whirlwind of a summer and we did stuff almost everyday with our family!
Now, on to our new adventure! We have been in Colorado a week and just got internet installed so I'm feeling motivated. I wanted to start off with something I'm really excited about so here goes:
Before we left CA I decided to toss this ugly old trunk that was housing our stuffed animals (when it wasn't falling apart). So I set out to find something practical that wasn't one of those corner mesh nets from way back when. I found this beauty on pinterest and immediately fell in love. Then I found this tutorial and decided I for sure wanted to have the hubs build it. Well, he was a little busy this summer and never got around to it. I knew once school started it'd be impossible for him to find time to help and since we're in a new place, I might as well acquire new skills. Let me preface this by saying I have never built anything just out of raw wood. (unless you count making a mini truss in 7th grade wood shop class) Here's the proof...the raw wood:
P.S. Don't buy spray paint from Michaels. Even with a coupon. It was terrible!
So here's to new adventures that await! What new thing have you tried lately?
