We had this great idea to build our dining room table out of salvaged wood from old bowling alley lanes. Unfortunately, we weren't the only ones who wanted to do this and had a hard time getting a hold of anything affordable. So Greg decided to try and mimic one on his own by gluing up a bunch of maple.
Nice work, G. Just in time for the holidays.
Our laundry room is finally finished too. Greg built cabinets, a folding table and came up with a cool drying rack for the wall. I seem to be spending a lot of time in this room lately, with a baby and all. Makes washing all the dirty clothes and diapers so much better.
In other exciting news, all 3 of our happy chickens are laying eggs now. They love running free in the backyard (we have grass now) and we really have enjoyed sitting on the screened porch watching them.
And finally, we got the top put on the rain barrel. Here's a picture of it all finished and full of water. We even decorated it with Christmas lights.
We probably won't be doing much more around here until after the holidays, so this will most likely be my last post of 2010. It's been a very productive and exciting year for us and I really look forward to all that 2011 has to bring.
Wishing you all a very merry christmas and a Happy New Year!
