And for the big reveal of what we did with part of the old wood beam... check out our brand spankin new fireplace and mantle! We white washed the brick, making the room feel so much bigger and brighter. Matt had cut one of the beams in half width-wise, and then cut it down to size so that it would slide over the existing mantle. He then framed the front facing beam. NOW THIS is more our style! Swipe to see the before pic of the hideous red brick... now we just need to paint the trim white, paint the walls, build and install benches to flank both sides... the to-do list never ends! The joys of being a homeowner!•
ALSO- we need your advice!!! Check out the 4th pic of this post... like we mentioned, we really want to build and install benches flanking both sides of the fireplace. However, the hearth sticks out and is not flush with the brick. 😒 Any advice on how to make this look as clean/not weird as possible?! TIA!•

@afterteainc Keemun tea is a full leaf tea and one of the best known black teas in China. Her Keemun tea is hand picked from the mountains in the Anhui Province. It’s a delicious tea with sweet and smokey overtones, combined with an orchid aroma. Superb when enjoyed purely on its own or with milk.
@mudandyarn has made a cute, little buff stoneware tea cup and matching saucer to enjoy your Chinese tea in! Made by the pinching technique for some texture and glazed in white to really show off the rich color of the Keemun tea.
What happens when you have a pile of @evolutiamade reclaimed oak skins and a bunch of #wino friends? You get #shoptime to be creative. It’s not mind blowing, and I’m not the first to make them. However, I know a few people who will be excited, and you winos know who I’m talking about.
With not much going on in the shop I’ve decided to sand and apply a finish to this miter saw station I made a year and a half ago. I think it looks really nice. I only applied two coats of Natural finish Watco. #modern
SWIPE As much as I’ve loved my wormdrive saws, the @dewalttough FlexVolt rear handles have become my go-to. I just sold all of my corded saws to go (almost) completely cordless. With the innovations in the tool world, cordless has become the future. However, the future is now.
