Okay, so I promised Andy an Ottoman for Christmas this year and then with all the acrylic album kits I never got around to making it for him... I did tell him he probably would not get it on Christmas morning, but in all honesty, I could have made it already... I've just been stalling because it's so dang cold and I don't want to be out there...in the garage... in the cold. Yes, even with the garage space heater turned on.
Tomorrow though, I am going to bite the bullet and get started. I drew out a pretty basic sketch, and I don't have measurements or anything yet, but it's going to be great.
The best part? When we moved into our house, almost every night, I couldn't help but checking the garbage piles at the houses still under construction for usable lumber... I build a work bench, a de-lux cat condo (that the stupid cat doesn't use), A raised platform for Andy's truck bed (Okay he built that) and numerous other things, and still have a hearty supply. So I'm pretty sure I can build the entire thing, and upholster it for about $20.
I'm so excited, I'm giddy.
I'll try to remember to take pics and update my blog as I work.
