I wanted to make some "equipment locker" toy boxes. My Dad is a principal and was on spring break last week and said he would help. I've never worked w/ saws etc. and was excited to get to try them out. I think I might watch to much HGTV. Those carpenters are really fast and make it look really easy. These 2 boxes took us all day.
My Dad had all the tools and supplies (and technical knowledge). I only had to buy hinges and wood putty, so they only cost me about $13.
It was fun hanging out w/ my Dad. He did most of the work and I just handed him stuff (reminded me of my childhood). He even agreed to help me w/ a few more projects this summer so stay tuned.
TADAAA! (after a hard day's work)
I painted them the same way as the rest of the furniture in the room. Then I cut out a stencil w/ my Cricut and wrote "Saints' Property" and "Ravens' Property". You might not be able to see it with my awesome photography skills, but trust me that's what it says. I think I'm going to make cushions for them so they'll be like a window seat. I need to come up w/ some sort of window treatment too.
I guess I haven't said it yet, but my Dad rocks!
