a rough beginning




holy cow...magic before my very own eyes!

so, we are suppose to close on the cabin end of this week. just waiting for a few more signatures and approvals and then the passing of the money....then the panic attack...you know the rest of the story.

yesterday we hit up one of the local salvage yards in search of an old utility sink for the kitchen (total demo and redo project) when i spotted this old work bench. it only needs a little TLC and it will be a show stopper...at least i hope.

i'm thinking about marble or butcher block on top. at this point your guess is as good as mine and honestly, i am just basking in the amazing deal.

the best part of this re-purposed piece is it was only 109.00 smackers..including tax. now we just have to figure out how to haul to the sonoma mountains.
