Have loved watching Ana's youtube channel for a few years now and finally got the nerve to try and make some thing. I have always made doll furniture so I thought that I would try and make 1:1 scale furniture. I loved that video she did on the no-pour concrete paver outdoor coffee table and thought that the plans would make a wonderful bench. It took me a couple of weekends but I did it. Added some little accent pieces to the corners cause the bench did seem a bit wobbly. But it still turned out well and I love it. You get such a great high off of making and completing a furniture build. Gave it to my Mom for christmas. She loves it. Only one problem is that everyone who sees it says that it's a lovely coffee table. lol
