I appreciate, love, and look up to him

Have I mentioned that I recently learned my husband can do woodworking projects? Well, he can and he did and now I’m going to want a lot more! I’ve been eyeing a Pottery Barn entryway system for years. I mean close to THREE years. As with most of the items in the catalog, it’s pretty pricey. Bryan decided he could build it for cheaper.

As you can see, it has three storage areas and a lip for the seat. I wasn’t around the weekend he built it, but I can only imagine the detail he put into this. I know it’s a piece of art. He may look at it and see his imperfections, but like most things he does, I look at it and see the masterpiece his hands created. He may see a nick here or a brush stroke there, but I see something that is beyond my comprehension. I see exactly what is in the magazines. I see something that should be built-in a factory and bought in a store.

So much work went into this bench and I can’t even fathom enough to appreciate it to its full potential. I do know enough to be so very thankful for a husband who is handy, crafty,  mechanical, and any other descriptor for the amazing things he’s able to do.
