Breakfast Nook

So here's the breakfast nook:


I still need to screw it down along the back, fill all the screw holes with dowel plugs and stain those, and then varnish the whole thing, so I can't cross it off the list yet.  But that's what I've been doing since Monday.

I never did get to the garden this week.

It looks really nice. As always - great job! How are the bees doing?

Thanks JAGG. As far as I can tell, the bees are doing fine. I see them every once in a while when there's a break in the weather. But when it's raining they don't come out. If we get a clear spot this weekend, I need to get into the hive and see how things are doing.

Good job!

Sweet! Paula, that looks amazing. If I'm ever capable of producing anything like that with my own hands I will be very proud.

That looks really good. But what is this rain you speak of? Can you send some our way? We haven't had any of that for weeks and weeks here in England! I have been watering the garden since early April now.

Nice! You've got some talent there, lady!

Serious love. You might wake up one day to find me hanging out there (creepy, yes, but harmless). What a great place. What wonderful work, Paula.

You're very industrious! Our whole house is a series of nooks, we could do with a big open plan room. It looks gorgeous.

looks great!

Thank you all for the kind compliments.

I have to admit that the real talent is being able to fix it when, even though you checked the corner and determined that it was square, the pieces that you carefully cut into 45 degree angles don't fit because the wall isn't straight on the long side and is pushing the tricky end into something less than forty-five degrees.

I got it to fit, and it doesn't show too badly, but it's not as pretty as it was going to be. Good thing I'm a champeen cushion maker as well....plus, eventually the table will be in the way, so you really won't see it...
