My first big project with NO HELP!!!!

Okay, so my hubby bought me a nail gun for Christmas (no not for fingernails or anything girlie like that LOL, but a brad nailer). So I had been thinking about making the bench that Kris had the tutorial on way back in April (

I love those benches and thought I could do it, only because Char and I both made Kris's blanket crane this summer at my house and her directions and pattern were very easy to follow. So I got up the morning after Christmas day and while everyone was still asleep, I went to work in my "shop" aka, the basement. I pulled up Kris's tutorial on my laptop and started sawing and sanding and nailing and painting and sanding and staining and VOILA- I love it!!! I put it at the foot of my bed. I plan on making one a little smaller to place on top of this one, but for now I have some cute decor on it. The picture frame was a tutorial Char had on her site earlier this year too. What goodies you gals put out there for us! If you fancy this type of bench, then definitely check out her tutorial and definitely become a follower of Simply Prim. Enjoy, Kim


  1. Your bench turned out wonderful - and it will be so fun to stack two of them when you get a smaller one made! I'd like to make one of these myself!

  2. Kudos to you on your solo! You did a fantastic job. It is a beauty!
