Third Batch of Home Projects

Here’s our third batch of home projects!

Project #1 – IKEA Furniture Construction

Why are stores like IKEA and Target so easy to drop like $300 at? During our last trip to IKEA we bought a bunch of furniture that needed assembling:

Most notable was the 3 drawer chest we found for our sideboard. I was hesitant of the color at first but the room really needed a pop of color. Everything is brown!

Seeing it all put together, in the space, really convinced me though. It is the perfect addition of color to the room. The orange/red really works. I want to eventually switch the hardware to something a little prettier but that will come with time.

It has three drawers that are pre-lined with the cutest yellow striped interior. We also bought these great drawer dividers for smaller items.

Project #2 – Weather Proofing Our Outdoor Table

Since we have a brand new dining room table we brought our old set out to the back porch. We wanted to weatherproof it though so we gave it a few liberal coats of Minwax Urethane. Now we can leave it back there and not worry about it molding, getting soaked, or getting ruined.

Project #3 – Seating For The Front Porch

We bought these chairs on Overstock.com for a bargain and this table from IKEA. Our front porch is now comfortable and looks really nice from the street. I love it!

And, as always, Reggie is only concerned with where the sunny spots in the house are. Ah, well.
