Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

I used the Mudroom Bench with Easy Drawers plans and adapted the bench to fit the area I had. Previously, the walls had chair rail moulding and some hideous wainscoting. The whole thing, including painting the bench and walls, took me about 3 weeks. Some days I worked an hour, some days 7 or 8 hours. The build was the easiest part of the project and I was finished with the unpainted bench in a weekend. I had an issue with one of the drawers not closing flush and wasted a lot of time trying to fix it but ended up building a whole new drawer. The finish work took the longest. I spent about $300 on materials and another $300 on tools I needed/wanted (Kreg jig, paint sprayer, etc.) for this and future projects.
