Catch up

A little catch up is in order.  I got called to be Young Women's president in our ward.  For those of you who do not know, that is a HUGE job and requires a fair amount of time.  So I have been a little MIA as of late.
Here is a project I did a little while ago.  I ripped down my old planter bench from my backyard, deciding it was not getting used quite the way I wanted it to be.  So now I have all this amazing redwood.  perfect for some outdoor furniture that never got built.  It is such a pretty wood and adds such nice warmth to my sad Las Vegas desert backyard.

This project I whipped out in a day for free.  I also didn't even have to do any finish work on it really because I already had done that on the fence.  Even better!  I lined the box with a burlap sack from Home depot for like $8.  So compared to the $75 that the Husby saw these online for....Well you know.

I now have a warm, friendly (and hopefully soon some yummy jasmine) to welcome my guests.

You can check out ANA WHITE to see the plan I based mine off of.  She has two different ones. The Cedar Planters for under $20 and the Planter Box with Trellis.
