meet tiffany.

Hi there. I'm Tiffany, husband is Dan and lab is Sherman. I blog over at The Coffeehouse; a blog that has absolutely nothing to do with coffee. Instead, I blog a little bit about everything, including a little DIY from time to time.
But, I have to be completely honest with you, the DIY is all husband.
Sometimes I am called in to go get the drill or search for a dropped screw that landed in an impossible-to-find place. And at this point husband gives me the nickname "gopher".
However, the majority of the time you'll find me standing in the corner ...attempting to take pictures and daydreaming about future blog posts.
What can I say, it's a gift.
So, when the lovely little lovebird (try saying that 25 times really fast ... it's fun, I tried it) said that she was jumping on a plane for vacation, I jumped as well ... at the opportunity to say hello to all of you. And then I got nervous. You see, I started following the little lovebirds when I first started blogging. She's amazing. They're amazing. Truly. But you all knew that already.
So, nervous or not, I decided to share with you a little summer DIY project that we husband recently took on.
A barnwood potting table.
A "pinterest-inspired" barnwood potting table, that is.
I absolutely adore this rustic table that now takes up half of our patio.
Truly. It's huge. And awesome.
Not to mention, our table is so much better than the one on pinterest.
Because our table has a bottle opener.
Husband would put a bottle opener on our dog if he could.
After the table was finished, husband and I had a little argument discussion about what should go on the table.
Husband said tools; I said food.
Thank goodness my sister-in-law is a horticulturalist.
Yes, I married a handy-man and gained a sister who is a horticulturalist.
I did plan this. Very, very carefully.

Well, there you have it.
Our little summer DIY project.
So, come on over to The Coffeehouse and see what else the Joneses are working on. And you can be the new "gopher". I'm getting a little tired of it, to be completely honest with you.

See you soon!
