1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Outdoor Piano Bench on: July 26, 2015 08:30:58 PM
I rarely post threads for my individual projects but I'm just super happy with how this turned out.

May I introduce my outdoor piano bench!


Hubby and I have been working off and on in our basement and have accumulated a lot of extra wood pieces - mostly 2x4's and a couple 2x6's. The wood pile was becoming a nuisance so I decided to do something about it. Inspired by a couple of other very colorful benches I've seen around I just had to make this bench with the slats as piano keys. A pile of wood, a box of screws, some sand paper and a bit of exterior paint and ta-da! Anyway, I love how it looks on my porch. Smiley

Thanks for letting me share!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One tiny stuffie swap round ... is it 9? on: April 21, 2015 11:14:32 AM


I've been thinking that I think it may be time to revisit the one tiny stuffie swap! It's either been a really long time or I've just missed them.

The idea is that we make our partner one tiny (fits in a 5"x5" square) stuffie. The medium isn't important (sewn, knit, crocheted, felted) as long as it's a stuffie made to our partner's likes.

Anyone interested?

(Also, I don't want to step on toes so if you organized the last round(s) and would like to keep organizing these please let me know.)
