While I continued to love my bright, happy colors, I also fell in love with the natural wood project this year. I am not sure if working with all of this wood and tools has increased my testosterone level or what, but I found myself saying things like, "That wood is too pretty to paint." And, "You don't paint wood that is that pretty."
Projects such as this bench
and the alder wood on this wine rack screamed to be left alone.
