Ana White, You are my hero

In case you were wondering, I am one of twenty somethings who flew the nest and then immediately moved home post-college. There were a number of reasons for this, the biggest one being that my mother is ill.

That and the free rent.

There are certain other advantages to living at home, however. One of them is that in my Dad has a workshop in the garage and a large quantity of tools that I can borrow. So in preparation for soon moving out, I want to build stuff. So several weeks ago I stumbled across And have since been in love. So let me share a few plans I am lusting over.

It looks pretty straight forward and will help contain the huge piles of laundry that I produce. No seriously. I hate folding laundry so I just won't do it.

I am envisioning two of them flanking a nice bench on a patio.

I am envisioning these in white with a nice teal seat cushion. So cute!

Lord only knows where I would wind up putting this but I can just picture it with an antiqued white finish.

So hopefully I will actually build some of this stuff. Ana White has so many awesome plans. You should totally check out her blog.

P.S. I'm not being paid to say any of this. If someone were, the money would immediately go into purchasing lumber...
