He Loves Me...

What can I say? When the hubby takes his knowledge of something I love (louvres), and something I want (bedside tables) and marries the two together, I feel cherished, cared for and well loved. I was actually going to post on this in February last year - but I had wanted to make over the room they were going in to... it's still a work in progress.

A while ago (last year) he picked up these louvres for free on one of his jaunts, and brought them home. Then he started planning. The bench saw got a work out before assembly, and then I joined him for the painting (we painted one each - but he did both tops).

Have you ever tried leaning over/sitting to paint while pregnant? (Don't worry - I had a special mask on that filters out the chemicals). It's awkward, I have to say.

And here they are.

 A little bit of bespoke to go in the guest room - and I LOVE 'em! Thanks honey - you're better than one in a million!!!
