Take a peek at the bench I picked up at Goodwill on Leetsdale. I paid $19.99 because I could see beyond the grandma fabric. Then I put it in the garage for about five months — so I could test my husband’s patience.
“Hey honey…this-a-here bench ain’t very sturdy…Imma put some boards and what not unner this bad boy.”
”Well don’t forget to shove some foam unner there for good mezure!”
So I had Norbert (yes, that’s his real name) my favorite wood cutter at The Home Depot cut a piece of wood for me. Norbert is the first one to help me out. Then I had my next door neighbor Matt cut out the notches so the wood piece would fit. If John Krasnowski and Ashton Kutcher had a baby it would look just like Matt, FYI — so he is the second helping hand…
I went out on a limb with this green color. My first inclination would be to spray this black, but I have a bazillion pieces of black furniture. Besides, I swear we must live in the dustiest cul de sac in America – I can dust my giant black kitchen table, turn around, and suddenly alllll the dust comes back! So green equals hidden dust! Right?
