In this new house we have a living space that we did not have in our previous home. That means, to an extent, new furniture. You know what – it’s expensive!! We have always like rustic furniture and with 2077’s improved carpentry skills he took a stab at making a coffee table for us. And he ROCKED it!!
It’s solid, rustic and cost us about $2.00 in nails and electricity – cannot beat that!! He puttered around with this for a few days and most of the time was consumed with the design of what he wanted. Once he had a clear vision, the build went quickly and straight forward.
Pallet furniture, bird houses, nick-necks, etc are a great way to get your feet wet in the basics of construction. Wish we would have thought of that before we built our house. Live and learn!
