Oh how I love barnwood...

My cousin had a shed in her backyard. A shed that she wanted to disappear. She mentioned wanting to tear it down, so I piped up and asked if I could have some of the wood if I helped tear it down. Thinking me some kind of sucker, she of course agreed. My original intention for the boards is probably not going to work out. I don't think I saved enough for the project. But here is my first piece:

Not a great picture, but here is a sneak peak at another project- the slipcover on this chair is part of a sewing project I've been working on. More of that later.

I see more frames and some window boxes in my future.
