The lady carpenters are done

16 Feb

The girls put in a weekend of putty filling, sanding, staining, and varnishing to finish their desk/shelf thingies. We walked to the hardware store to let Madi dig through shelf boards for the perfect grain. Peyton also brought in photos of her teak so she could match up a wood stain. These girls aren’t fooling around!

This time we called a cab for the ride home from the hardware store. Proud of my girls, and boy are they proud of their new furniture!
