Day 28. Trash

Trash.... some big nightmare that piles and piles and never goes away!
it just ends up in paradise and then our paradise is lost!

do your part Recycle & Reuse!

Farmhouse nightstand

We did it... we finished the little night stand for Ashlee's room.  It is another plan from my favorite site... Ana White....I love her farm house furniture plans and this is another one of those.
We scaled ours down to be a little bit smaller but basically the same... I am also looking around for a different drawer handle.  I want a little ceramic one or a crystal pull knob.

I cannot wait to get into her room!
