We have a bench!

So, I’m a little obsessed with our backyard and making it look cute. I planted the garden, I got tiki torches, I put up lights, and then I even got a bench!
I knew I wanted something adirondack style and that I didn’t want to spend much money…entirely possible here if I looked in the right place.
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.

  1. Hey, what’s that little, dark, ratty thing sitting on your lap? Why are you looking so happy about it? It has such huge ears. It is so skinny and shiny. I do not like it. Not one bit.
