I bought this is March.....2012.
And I quickly did this to it. Tore it apart and painted and distressed the wood.
Then it sat...... and sat...... and sat.
It moved in and out of the house with the seasons. My not so patient husband was actually patient. Probably because I had it in the house more then out in the garage.
It wasn't like I didn't want to finish it, but I had grown into a love/hate relationship with it. No sooner had I stapled things in place, that I ripped it back off. It just didn't sit right.
Curves became my arch enemy. So I decided to ignore it till a light bulb went off.
Then I decided to have my family for Christmas this year, annnd I'm sure they'd like to sit somewhere, so I could put it off no longer. Out in the garage it went and wasn't coming in, till it was done. It came in last night at 9 o'clock.
Its not prefect, but I have to keep reminding myself that I'm not a professional.
The fabric I think was picked out in 2011 by Roger. It was a deal at buy one, get two free.
See its smiling at me!
So what took me over a year to "think" about took me less then a day to do.
My hand hurts, I smashed my knee and I stapled my finger not once but twice in the making of this project, but in the end I'm happy, sore... but happy! :)
