Red face Another Pintrest Project

Wife hasn't been happy with our table since we moved into home last yr- so after seeing this table redone to look like old farm house style table she asked me to take this on. Easy enough- less than 100 bucks at lowes and I really like it. All screws are from bottom and we really like looks now.

Let me switch to tapatalk and pics to come Finishing it now

Love it so far. Still have to put lower frame around bottom and then paint/stain legs.

Wow- we are happy.

Less than $100


Last month it was the cornboards or cornice or whatever Casey called them

This is Feb and you've already gotten 2 projects behind you? You are really getting a head start on accumulating points toward kitchen passes to hunt next season, aren't you?

I hate Pinterest. I can't tell you how many women, relatives included, that call me wanting me to make some little metal some thing that they seen on Pinterest. I try to explain that there is no money in it for me and that accumulating a couple hundred thousand in metal working equipment didn't get paid for by Pinterest jobs. I usually end up doing them any way.

What Curt said. I get roped into more projects thanks to pintrest than I will ever care to complete. The worst part is when they are done all her friends want one.

Nice -

Yep her BFF already wants me to come do their table now :0

It never ends ...... But it earns me some major points for low money. Have "had " to buy a few shop tools along way. She sure use several hundred dollar big compressor sanding and blowing off dust. She griped when I got it

Yes, yes it is! I can't even begin to count how many things I have built because of ideas shared with me from looking at Pinterest.

Although, I'll admit, I have been able to buy some tools because of the projects.

A website that just displays pictures from other websites that other people have flagged as being cool.

This is generally how Pinterest works:

Wife: check this out!
You: cool.
Wife: Can you make one for me?
You: I guess.
Wife: I'll pin it to my project board.

2 weeks later.

Wife: when are you going to make that thing I showed you?
You: what thing?
Wife: You know that thing with the really cool thing-a-ma-jig.
You: Oh, I don't know... I don't remember what it looks like.
Wife: Let me pull it up.
You: Okay, but can I do it a little different?
Wife: Sure, that's fine.
You: Okay, I am going to need to buy such and such tool because I think it will make it better. Also, can I just use this and that material... it'll be cheaper since I have to go by that such and such tool.
Wife: Okay.

2 weeks later.

You: Check out what I made.
Wife: Did you use that new such and such tool?
You: yeah!, uh, umm...
Wife: When are you going to make that thing we talked about?
You: yeah... about that.... ummm okay.

2 weeks later.

Wife: Thank you for making that thing... I like it.
You: You are welcome.
Wife: You did a really great job.
You: Thanks babe!
Wife: Hey, do you think you could make me this too?....
You: Sigh....

Pinterest is the devil.

It's always as I am tetering on the edge of sleep that my wife, on her phone, says "hey, look at this cool awesome amazing chingaderra that someone put on pinterest."
I say that's nice and roll back over.

I was driving down my street one day and someone had thrown out an ikea 4x4 shelf unit. it had some minor water damage on the bottom shelves...threw it in my truck hauled it home...

sanded down the shelves and putty'd them and repainted the whole thing...looks just like new. wife added some new pull knobs for the 4 middle drawers

amazing how lazy people are and just throw out useful stuff that can be fixed easily

I have that same shelf on my never-ending list of stuff make. She's asked me when I will get to it about 15 times now, so I guess I will be making it in the next month or so.
