Consider This the Before Picture

I’m not really crafty. Or handy. Or imaginative with projects.┬áBut somehow, someway, with the help of the internet, I’m going to do something with these items that I got at the lumberjack show at the Tennessee State Fair. I don’t know what I’m going to do, really, beyond sanding the little chair and staining it.Continue reading “Consider This the Before Picture”
