I'm Amazed at Myself

No, this isn't about my selfishness or anything like that. Last night my hubby and I moved in our new media console. That I built. OK, so I built it with my Dad, but we built it! We studied the plans and chose the lumber and measured and cut and assembled and sanded and painted ourselves.  And I ♥ it!

Day 89 Cabinet

Wow.  It looks great in our living room … completely changes the feel since moving out the armoire that seemed to swallow up the space!

Let me just say that Ana over at Knock Off Wood is FaBuLoUs!  I am thrilled that I came across her blog because not only did she inspire me to do this, but her plans are great and I now have my own compound miter saw and finish nailer.  I already have drills and such, but I'm thinking I need a table saw … what do you think?

My creation


  1. I love the photo collage! Thanks for inspiring us all, your media unit is fabulous!

  2. That looks awesome! I have to know where you got those yellow things holding up your cabinet doors, or what they are called. I need some of those.

  3. I am loving the painted toenails in the collage- resting while the paint dried :)

  4. Wow! It looks wonderful! Better than Pottery Barn- you know those aren't assembled with the love and care.
