Love it when a project comes out just like you imagined it!! This cost me less than $5 total since I already had the adhesives and the garland. Awesome!! You can see how it looks on my mantle here (you may notice I changed out the greenery for some ribbon – I had to have something to hid the blocks of wood the JOY was sitting on but the greenery covered too much ;))

So, now I am turning on some music and cleaning house. I don’t know about the rest of you but when I get into a project, everything else gets forgotten. HA!! So, until next time!! Blessings to you and thanks for reading!!

I put hammers and chains in the hands of my 9 and 11yr. old and allowed them to go to town on these boards. They loved it!! We bought soft white wood that would distress and stain well. I wasn’t worried about knots or variations because I like the character.
I’m hoping to get the finishing touches – poly, touch-up paint – done and then install the bench boards. I shopped for hooks today and worked on number and placement of those, next is baskets for the cubbies.
Finished picture coming soon!!
