Mehndi Monday

Check out this sleeve that I did recently. I love some of the little details, and I think the fingers are my favorite. I have been doing a lot of hands lately, hoepfully now that things are warming up I can tag some feet soon too.
Happy Mehndi Monday.

Mehndi Monday

I have been enjoying doing so many projects this spring. The weather is so lovely in the pacific northwest, it has made everything feel fresh and new. It is the perfect time of year to be sporting some henna.
Have a great Monday All.

Hey Look We Made A Table!

We have been living without a kitchen table for a looooong time, and I really felt like we needed one. Duh! I must have looked for almost a year in local shops, online + craigslist, and just couldn't find the combination of things I was looking for. Finally I was committed to Do It Myself. I found these plans (having no clue how to choose) and with A LOT of help from the hubby, dove right in.
Basically everything about this project was new to me. From the tools, cutting the wood, to finally staining. I had small experiences with a lot of these things, but had never done anything at such a large scale.
I am so pleased with how everything turned out. The table is awesome and I love the stain. We decided to make the table 1 inch taller than the plan specifications, which I am so glad we did. It has been a great height for cooking, making dough, and as a work station. The only problem is finding chairs that are the right height! SO next is a bench to match.
The plans were so easy to follow, and the whole experience has been super rewarding. Now that I have the confidence of this project under my belt, I cannot wait to knock out about a million more (ideas that is, not tables lol).

Mehndi Monday

Happy Mehndi Monday Everyone.
This was a fun, simple + quick henna application.
The hands stain really fast and get a rich rust color when dried.
Have a great day All.
