So what did my old garage door turn into?
If you guessed a bench than you win the prize!
Except I don't have a prize..... you'll just have to live with the satisfaction of knowing you are so smart and creative! And you were right. And we all know how much we all love being right.....Right?
Now let's see what's left (Wahaha) of my garage doors!
Because it was quite heavy, I added a support in the middle and braced the two ends with some high quality cabinet grade wood we had from one of our rentals. I was not in love with the gray but wasn't sure I wanted to tackle making her nekkid. But when I saw my friend Amy's window sill she had just striped using a heat gun, I quickly changed my mind. She let me borrow it and I was not disappointed. I was not concerned with getting it down to the bare wood. I wanted it to be a little rustic and loved.
I thought about cutting off the two end panels, or just making the supports shorter but have you read my post on my 4th of July dresses recently? Patience Kimmy-san.......something will come to you.....
I love it. It looks and feels like it belongs. It is amazingly comfortable to sit on and my girls have already started to enjoy it at night while waiting for the fireflies to come a-knocking.
So, did I do good?
Always being renewed,
