You know how sometimes you see antique things that other people have and sometimes they’ve brought them back from a trip to France or something and you’re like, I couldn’t even afford the cost of getting that thing back (no matter how small it is) much less a trip to France? But you want the thing anyway (duh) because it’s old, it’s beautiful and it has a story. That kind of thing happens to me all the time. One of these days I’m going to be able to afford a trip to a Parisian flea market (and bring the stuff back). Until then I’m going to go on making DIY Farmhouse style milking bench like this one for $25 bucks and making it look really old with, what I have to say, is a pretty awesome new paint technique I learned recently.
