Figuring out “the right place” was another story entirely.
After an entire Saturday of driving around with Jesse and Jenna I finally found this bench for about $22 in the market. I was so excited that I was practically near tears (maybe a little extreme for a bench, but it had been a long day).
Getting it home proved to be quite the task….The locals were quite entertained as they watched 3 gringos tie a bench to the roof of a car and then crawl in the windows.
The next step in the buying a bench process was staining and sealing it, which ended up costing more than the bench itself! We made 3 different trips to 2 different hardware stores and I spent several afternoons making a mess in the backyard.
The final product is totally worth it though and we’re looking forward to spending some quality time enjoying our backyard.
