This was the first project that we have completed for our new home. Of course while on Pinterest we found the plan from Shanty 2 Chic. After viewing the dimensions we decided that we would give it a try. The plams were very easy to follow! The challages we had while making this was lacking a miter saw of our own. We were able to borrow one from a friend. Another challenge was deciding on a finish. We have kids so we wanted something durable. We decided to use "restore" patio paint to assl some texture. It turned out amazing!! I cannot wait to start on our next project.
