Being Benched


My husband has always been a man of action. He played basketball all his life. But more than making baskets, he likes to use his hands to make benches.

He also likes to rescue things. . . like old wood from the landfills. He picks it up all the time. If a neighbor is remodeling, he willing takes the wooden waste off their hands and puts it back into another project, such as this one. He made this picket-fence bench for me years ago. But, when the wood started to rot, he simply replaced the slats and painted them pretty as new.

One guy, too! :)

Cool bench! Were I to attempt something similar, sadly the end result would just be a lot of white paint all over the place . . . and broken bits of wood sticking in uncomfortable places.
