Winter Projects...


If any of you know Brett, you know that he can't sit still, which means that he always needs to have something he's working on. This was his BIG project for winter-he made a bed frame! Brett doesn't play video games and can't be glued to the t.v.-both of which would be cheaper, but he builds things and this I LOVE about him-anything he decides to do he does, usually within 7-10 days. This thing is STURDY, in fact, I'm surprised that he didn't get a hernia carrying the headboard upstairs-it was a near death experience! Once in the room and assembled, he then painted and distressed it and finished off painting the ceiling and moulding he'd installed last winter. Our room finally looks finished! I'm so proud of my man, anytime I see something in a catalog I like he'll make it for me. It seems that every year he makes a few new things for the house. I make cookies and babies and he makes tables, shelves, beds, and the money to fund it all. Yeah, the only problem we have now is that winter isn't quite over and Brett has almost finished the desk he's currently working on for me...he's gotta spend more time in the office to cover the costs of all the time in the garage!


Anyway, thank you Brett for the Christmas, Birthday, anniversary, mother's day, etc. gift. You say it's all those things but I know that you'll be ready for another project by Mother's Day, then another by mid-summer, and another in the fall...I'll start thumbing through catalogs for ideas...

Looks awesome! If Brett gets board I've got some projects he could work on.

I am sooo jealous! It look s really great. He is quite talented at all this. I can't figure out how he knows what to do! I wish I could make things like that. Then maybe my house wouldn't look so dull. What a man.

So VERY cute!!! He is very talented! I could probably think of a few things for him to do too if you run out of ideas! Love it!
