Couple weeks back, I got a call from one of my sisters-in-laws.
And you know I love my sisters-in-laws.
Except for that one SIL. The one who's gonna get punched in the face one of these days. . .
Or do I?
Anywho, I got a call from my SIL, and she was calling in reinforcements, yo. See, she had a ginormous, surprise party she was planning, and she wanted a couple things done in her house.
So I headed on over. Massive amounts of lumber in hands, nailgun in the other, and air compressor in the other.
(how many hands is that??)
See, my bro and sis in law recently changed out the carpet in their dining room for this beautiful, bEE-utiful cherry wood, and got a fabulous new dining table.
But she wanted something . . . more. Just a little molding in there. And so, we got to work. Obviously. Since I snapped the pic after I had already dumped all my handseses of lumber/tools down on her floor.
I'm tellin' you,
we were like a super hero duo. Like, Wonder Woman and Super Girl tag team. Undies over the pants 'n all. We busted out this project in, like, under 3 hours. We were putting trim down before the compressor was even finished filling up, we were that fast.
It was a beautiful thing.
Trimmed out the window in there, and we used my usual 1/4 inch plywood "wainscoting" (I use the term loosely, ahem) treatment, and this project cost us a whopping $22. Price of the plywood, yo.
Wanna see it all done? 'Cause I stood back, and went. . . Whoa.
Oh, wait. WAIT. Keep yer pants on. I have to show you the birthday cake she made for this aforementioned party.
It's freaking amazeballs.
Wow. Mad skills. But you know, I've got um. . . bow hunting skills.
So there's that.
Okay! So. . .the dining room:
Not bad for 3 hours (plus the 10,000 more hours it took my SIL to paint it, cough) right?
Well dang-- now I want a dining room.
