Wow, thank you all for your interest in the Shutterfly offer! I went to sleep right after I posted that, and thank goodness for time-dated emails because I got emails from 62 of you (and another 10 or so on facebook) that you wanted the promo cards... and I only had 7!!! Yikes! They are on their way today to the first people I heard from :)
A great GIVE-AWAY is coming up! When we reach 300 followers (we are 4 shy right now) I have something anyone can use to give away... A $100 Visa Card! As I posted last night, someone who may or may not be related to me (I'll never tell) who is SO excited about this blog and my little business, has donated the $100 Visa card for the give away. And after the response I got from the Shutterfly thingie, I might just add a Shutterfly gift card in the mix, too! All you have to do to win is be a follower :)
Onto the bench...
So, we had the most gorgeous bench on our front porch. Remember it?
My husband convinced me to list it, so I did. I wasn't happy about it, but I did it. And of course it sold. Rather quickly I might add.
So, what to do with a sad & empty porch?
Build a new bench!
As always, I want to give credit where credit is due. Gail from My Repurposed Life has the greatest build-a-bench-from-a-headboard tutorial on the planet. We've used it every time (well, 3 times now, and working on number 4). Thank you, Gail!
I will tell you that these pictures were taken early Sunday morning before church, and there was frost on the bench... so the paint looks splotchy! But in 'real life' it isn't.
Hope you enjoy it, we sure are!
