{The Samantha Entry Way Bench}

Another wonderful client wanted the Samantha bench and shelf for her entry way.  I do build them, but encouraged them to do the building to save on cost, so that they did.  
They still wanted me to paint them though, so that I did. :)

I really do love this entry way system.  We have a bench that we use in our breakfast nook, which is great because I've had as many as 5 kids sitting on it on just one side of the table (when we have lots of friends over.)  It's pretty timeless, simple and convenient with how much storage it provides.  

I love the Varathane Satin sheen:

Here is the bench and the shelf in their home!  Looks fantastic guys!

What I've Been Up to

Blogger has this new thing where when you log in, you can see how many hits your blog has had in the last few days... I just realized that I have still had quite an impressive number of people checking in here over the past few days.  And you've been disappointed.  

So I thought I would apologize with a few excuses for the lack of posts.

My garden:
Already have canned like 30 quarts of tomatoes this summer!

Home projects:
My dining room table often looks like this...

We are finishing up the basement project (I will start working on a post).  Two weeks ago I finally built these shelves in.  I'm excited to have some kind of Q&A about basements to share everything that we have learned about framing, drywalling, mudding, painting, built ins, tiling etc...

Master Bath:
Painting it.

The summer was crazy for me.  And I assume for ya'll too.  I felt like people weren't very focused on decorating and redoing their furniture, or buying mine (I still have that gorg round end table for sale.) Maybe because everyone is outside. Or because kids are home and occupy all of our energy and time.  Or because people are out of town a lot (like me, driving 4,500 miles ALONE with my kids over 3 1/2 weeks across the country and back.) 

But, school is back in, so I'll have some beautiful treats for you all in the next few weeks.  Promise!

Crabby Apple Console Table

I'm pretty sure there is a piece of furniture that I have painted in every room in J's lower level of her house... Just about. :)

This table was that orange-y, knotty pine style, but with way cute lines and lots of character.  It is SO cute now, adding the perfect pop of color just where J needed it.  

The skinny:
Paint: SW Crabby Apple Enamel
Top Coat: Varathane in Satin
