...he can do better.
seriously. my reign as DIY champion of the family has come to an end.
jesse dukes is a renaissance man. i have never seen him outright suck at anything. except for maybe a contest on who could drink a thick milkshake through a straw fastest. in that instance, he got 1st place in sucking.
with almost zero prior carpentry training or experience, and on a whim thanks to a pinterest rabbit hole of inspiration from me, he whipped up these 2 beautiful WIP's (works in progress) this weekend that will increase the value of our home, save us thousands of dollars versus buying pre-made, and provide us with muchisimo enjoyment. plus a healthy dose of wifely adulation from me and a testosterony feeling of accomplishment from himself.
stay tuned to see these projects in their completed glory and for much (much) more from my foxy woodsmith. now that i know he has these skills, i have opened up a pandora's box's worth of ideas for him to bring to life for me (including a gorgeous wooden, hinged, pandora's box).
*it behooves me to mention that jesse's dad helped him a bunch by loaning him special tools, advising him and even working on the project by himself when we had to leave for a bit on saturday. i love my father in law.
*and speaking of in-laws, happy birthday to my most favorite mother in law on the planet. i love you, linda!
