HGTV'd myself

This was one of my first big projects, this site motivates you to get better. No, at first I couldn't build a box, now, I'm building outdoor bars! All of my skills, I learned from this site. The boxes are heavy, sturdy, they've had 5 golden retrievers on it, 4 adults at once, and the storage is incredible. The pics below show what an improvement a piece of furniture can do. This piece went into a dead space corner, a catchall. I'm not proud of the mess, :), but I am proud of the after. Extra room, light, airy, yeah!
