Anyway, so the giant board game storage bench is underway, as you can see. Boxes are built, faces for the drawers are built. Today I'll be filling holes, sanding, and priming. I'll head out to Lowe's to buy drawer glides which I have NO idea how to install, but I guess that will be a new, er...fun, learning experience.
Now I'm starting to wonder...once I get this giant bench and all of its storage capacity into my house, and I fill those giant drawers with board games, am I going to spend every afternoon picking up board game pieces after my kids do a post-school raid of the games? Right now the games are out of sight, and kind of out of mind. Not for long, though. Hmmm...maybe this isn't such a good idea.
I'm also trying out the hardware on the drawer face. It's an extra-long black cup pull that looks like hammered iron. I think I like it -- big and chunky enough to fit the furniture, black to tie in with the myriad of black frames on the wall where the bench will live, and on sale for $4/each. Not bad.
