that’s it… I think I got everyone matched up. By now you should have received an email from me, if you are participating in the swap, that is. If you haven’t, let me know asap… I’m definitely far from perfect, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I made a mistake or two!

so I’ve been looking for a bench lately, and I came across this idea… although it doesn’t work for my space, I thought it as cute & worth sharing! The instructions read: “To get the look, cut a piece of plywood to fit across the seats of three wooden chairs. Cut notches in the back edge of the plywood to accommodate the chair backs and ensure a snug fit. Trim the front edge and sides of the plywood with molding, and seal the deal with a colorful coat of exterior paint.” Sounds easy enough! It might even be cute at a dining table!

if youre looking for a bench....why dont you have jeff make a surfboard long enough to fit the area and turn it into a bench? it works well if you like the beach look...?
