Getting It Done

I'd like to tell you how long I've had this bench.  Really I would.  I know it is at least a year but I'm no longer certain of when it took up residence in the corner of the garage. 2010?  End of 2009?  Not sure.
It's not very big and probably was meant for dolls.  Didn't need much help to transform into this either...
Ah the power of paint and sanding.  What took me so long?

Procrastination you are my middle name.  Or maybe my first name...
A thrifted bird, nest and wreath finish it off nicely don't you think?

Looks cute. I share your procrastination gene. I have a rocker that I have been finishing for probably 7 years. Not getting finished anytime soon.
