a weekend of building

Man, I love long weekends. We get so much done. And this past weekend, we were in a kick to catch up on all of our "building projects".
{i.e. the ones I need my carpenter/husband and his power tools for}

Like this gate we built for the deck. 

I was a nervous wreck, constantly catching Jake trying to run off the porch. 
I just knew he was going to beat me to the edge one day and falling down the stairs!

 So we built this swinging barn door style gate and attached it directly onto the porch.
 Basically, it's made exactly how you see it here. No tricks of the trade.

Ugly baby gates are the pits. I really love that this gate is functional and not hideous.
Sorry dude...

{apparently, it also works for dogs... great photo bomb Denver!}

Secondly, I finally finished this wooden pallet piece for the living room.

My sweet carpenter/husband build the pallet out of thin lumber and I went to town with the antiqued design. 
This verse is such a great staple to have displayed in our home.

I love it!!
