taking a 'break'
with 3 kids 'employed' here at the home office i KNEW this was going to happen. my desk broke. i'm not sure if it was the amount of dust that finally made the faux-wood give way or the kids climbing on it...
either way we had to finally fix the problem. we decided to clean the office (well, i didn't 'decide' to do that but really just got forced into it...)
we moved the my work space to a niche in the office and made room for caleb's drum set. yep, not enough noise around here already.
anyway, we built a desk. seriously, in our spare time.
here are a few pictures. rob chopped down a tree, split the logs and sanded them down.
ok. not really...but he did size and cut the boards and secure them together so i could do this cool stain and pour a few coats of poly (that thick clear coat like you see at bars...um, that's what someone told me).
well, i LOVE it. i guess now i have to work. darn.
