I'm never going to doubt her again!

This mother of 2 children under the age of 3 and lover of all things Mid Century Modern never ceases to amaze me. 

When she sent me this inspiration photo and said she wanted to make a similar table, I will admit... I completely doubted her. 

I never will again!

You would think I would have learned not to doubt her when she renovated the apartment kitchen all by herself. 

Or maybe even when she made her own wallpaper for the kitchen. 

Or maybe even the desk made of pennies

And let's not forget the hand masterpiece that hangs in my kitchen. 

I'm learning. 

So when I got a photo from her asking my opinions I didn't believe it could be done.

Even when I helped her cut the shapes from the MDF wood and cut the dowels to her exact measurements, I still didn't think it would work.

(You can tell she's a busy mother by the backgrounds in the photos lol) 

So as you can see this multi-talented woman really follows through when she puts her mind to a DIY project. 

She created a table for her home that made us all proud.

I will never doubt her talents again!

  1. Oh my goodness, Susan, what is WRONG with you? Her prior projects just made my jaw hit my computer table. How COULD you think she couldn't do this? You need to go lay down because you are not in your right mind. :-)

    1. I know right Susie?! I'm trying to get this girl to write her own blog. She is so incredibly talented! She is moving into a huge old farmhouse and I can not wait to document her every move!!! Thanks so much!
