I have big plans for the weekend, with a to-do list much longer than Matt would like. We have been in need of a new outdoor table since moving in. We currently have an old picnic table that was under a large tree in the backyard (and by the looks of it, it was under those trees for a few years). I found a great set of plans for a table and chairs on Knock Off Wood. Ana is amazing! She takes pictures of furniture, figures out how to make it, and then posts detailed plans online. With one minor adjustment, here are the table and chairs we will be constructing.

West Elm Table

I think it looks great, but it would look sturdier with 4×4 for the table legs instead of the 2×4. As if that wasn’t enough to keep us busy most of the weekend, I’m also planning on throwing in the construction of hanging wall shelves. I’ve been going back and forth about what type of wall shelves would look right in our bedroom. Floating? Corbels? Then I saw a picture and knew that I had found the right shelves for our beachy bedroom.
