One of the many to-do items to check off our list for the office to be completely wrapped up is the most prominent feature in the room- our wrap-around bench.
I’d like to say that I had a big hand in this project- but I really didn’t! That was my dad’s doing. Neither Jacob or I even thought of the idea in the first place for that matter! Nope- it was an idea that popped into the head of one of our friends when her and her husband (then fiance) came to our house and we showed them the space. So from her head straight to my dad’s hands.
There’s still a lot to do, including trimming out the bookshelf, but we are waiting until we do the window trim to do all the trimmings in one go-round.
So what did I do? Pretty much hold things for my dad, stand around, and take pictures of the process. However, to be fair to myself, my part is yet to come. My job is to cut the custom bench cushions to go on top and then figure out the fabric to use to finish it all off (unfortunately I have no idea how to sew, so the actual creation of the cushion covers will be done by the skilled hands of my mother-in-law!). Once that’s done, this will be by far my favorite room in the whole house.
