One Room Challenge – Handyman Graham Style
For those of you new to my blog, welcome! I’m happy to have you here! I’d also like to introduce you to my husband, Handyman Graham; I will now post a photo of to thoroughly embarrass him.
While he crunches numbers by day, he cuts wood with his table saw by night.
For some background, about a year ago, he found out about the Anna White website and he decided to all of sudden build a table with zero woodworking experience. As a loving wife, I had little confidence in the whole endeavor. I thought he was insane for taking it on. He proved me wrong and he built this lovely outdoor table…
You can read the full post on this table, here.
So for our outdoor space that I’m working on, I got rid of the round table and chairs
and I put Handyman Graham to work. Thereby, fulfilling the ancient saying, “If you prove your woodworking skills your wife will take advantage.” He built this outdoor sofa off of Anna White’s website…
For full disclosure, we are not an HGTV show. He did not build this overnight for $80 total. Nope. It took him many weekends and he got it done before this challenge began. The price also still adds up with the cost of materials.
But, for this week, let me introduce you to our new bench in the space. Aint she a beaut?! I love the x base back.
(Sorry for the horrible photos)
A bench cushion is currently being made in this fabulous Christopher Farr fabric that I had left over from my first One Room Challenge.
The bench will be paired with two of these faux bamboo barrel chairs. My upholsterer already finished up the cushions for them and I picked them up and they are beautiful! The chairs need another coat of spray paint but we’re getting there.
And that’s where we’re at so far. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you next week.
