  • Almost done with this new build.

    Wife wanted something under the window in our unused breakfast nook. We found an old desk on a curb alert and I built the rest. I still have to add 5he trim and paint the base. I’m about $220 in materials plus my time. She had a cheap built buffet($2000) in mind. I want to take the difference and spend it but she says it’s just saved money. Lol to the top.

        Looks like a real points earner!

          I say split the difference. She saved $900 and you spend $900.

              Yes. 1/4” tongue and groove from Lowes. At $37 a box it was the cheapest option.
