Some photos shown in this post may not be suitable for some folks, especially those weak in the tummy and those who are scaredy cats!!!!!!
This is how most get to see me, especially on the internet.....
But after a day of designing, figuring, measuring, cutting, glueing, nailing, sanding, painting, sanding again, and staining a project that I just had to have TODAY!
 (I am not a patient person, can't wait for Nuttin!)
This is what my poor FurBaby Yorkies see.....
I KNOW, I KNOW!!!!!!
But it was worth all that stress!
I began with a pile of wood and a BRIGHT IDEA!
Started with a few tools, but had to kick out with the BIG BOYS in the Barn (NO PICS OF THAT)
Then I started to see some progress.....

Now for the Fun Stuff, all Sanded and  then painting...
Starting to look like my bright idea is gonna work!
Adding more paint....
Sand Again and Stain....
Rub stain til soft, aged effect is achieved....

Finished !!!!!!!
Was it worth it?????
OH YEAH!!!!!

Prim Blessings to all... From Becky@ The Crow's Nest
