Just One More Thing

So, I really don’t need to add yet another hobby to my already bursting at the seams repetoire, but I am.

I already mentioned that Mr. Nicholes and I will be attempting to build a couple of things.

Mainly THIS:


And also, THIS:

I’m about to go crazy in the sawdust. And the best part about it is the fact that Mr. Nicholes is all for it!

So, guess what we’ll be documenting on this blog here for the next couple of months? Please pray that we actually go through with it. I know how SOMEONE in this family sometimes gets cold feet when it comes to projects. *eyes material for a dress shirt sitting in the bin* Pretty soon, that material is going to make a FANTASTIC skirt or dress for me. Wait, where was I?

So today, I signed up for a MyLowe’s Card and will be able to track our spending and everything! How cool is that?

So, by the time everyone celebrates their next birthday, I will have a full farmhouse table to seat children at, and it will look a little more pulled together in the Nicholes abode.

Are any of you planning any major home improvements for next year?

      LOL! Thanks so much. We’re hoping that this will make us fall more in love with each other though. *giggle* He seemed up to the challenge, I’m always up for whatever, especially if it kind of gives us a piece of our own to talk about!

    I’m super handy, but I don’t know that I can build a table. I would LOVE to build that table and chairs. Do you have the plans?

      She gives really good instructions on her site. I’m thinking that it will take us about a weekend to get the entire thing done. I figure between sanding, actual assembly, and staining, we’ll need it!
