My sister Ruth is back to do a little bit more of the heavy lifting around here. Last week I showed off her first cabinet door bench…and guess what, she made TWO. I know, I am humbled by her ability and get-up-and-go too! And, to make us all feel even worse about ourselves, she has 4 kids, works part-time and is pregnant! How does she do it? I honestly don’t know.
Before we get to the project, I thought I’d share a little about my siblings–who really are my best friends. We recently were all together, which is rare. Although there are kids sort of scattered around in this picture, we are all standing in order, oldest to youngest, right to left.
First of all, Ruth angled the top of the back legs, so that the back rest of this bench is slightly tilted back. Also, she used one big cabinet door to make the backrest.
And finally, Ruth painted the legs of this bench a grey, which I really like. It gives the legs a “metallic” look.
And there you have it! bench #2. I have a pretty remarkable sister. I’d love to her your thoughts here. Which of Ruth’s 2 benches do you like best?
