Sometimes a Girl Just Has to Build

I love to paint.  I love to repurpose.  I love junk.  But sometimes, I just have to build something.  Cutting the wood, drilling, screws...it feeds my soul to create something new from scraps of wood.  Using some fence boards my neighbor gave me, I made a little stool/bench.
I had no plan when I started, wasn't even sure what I was creating (as is often the case with us abstract random people), but started by cutting one of the boards into 4 equal pieces.  I decided these would make good sides or legs for a little table.  A few more cuts and then I figured out I was making a stool. 
 Some quick assembly, sanding, red paint and wax and aaah, my building itch was scratched (for a day or two anyway).


  1. LOVE your stool! :) great color too.

  2. So cute, Becky! You make me want to pull out the power tools and create something! LOL!

  3. This is a really fabulous piece you made and I love the colour too. penny

  4. I love it Becky and I get that same "building itch", that's why I bought a chop saw.... love to build! Your bench came out great!
