Time to Whip Up Some Chicken Marsala and Build a Bench!

Nothing like coming home and having your friend, Chris Bonee, in your kitchen cooking up a delicious meal! My home smelled just like Olive Garden and so I had to grab my camera and capture the whole excitement in our home! I’m not a wine drinker, and have never cooked with wine, so this was a new experience for me and it was so delicious!! Never had it before, but it fueled us up to get back to building a pallet bench!

And here is how it all came together!

Rip could see in his mind how to do it, so he comes home from work and gets at it!

Got it all built, then we did a sample stain to see how dark it needed to be “pre-paint” … then …

Then the finished project…ready to go to Chris’ best friend’s home for their 3 children to enjoy!

Chris thought he was going to sand down the edges so that the stain would show and make it look distressed, but after he had it all painted….he decided it was perfect!

If you have a little building project you’d like help with, let us know!

Merry Christmas and God bless you today with every blessing of heaven He has for you!

Lisa Rippy

I’m Lisa Rippy, a happily married woman to my wonderful Rip. We have 5 children and we live right outside of Madison, MS. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a love for all things “homey” from decorating, simplifying, remodeling, organizing and simply turning a house into a "Home Sweet Home." My passion is helping families live the life they long for in the interior of their hearts and homes. It all requires thought, planning and work that Rip and I both love to do! But if there is anything at all I can do to help you and your home life, please reach out to me. Nothing would thrill me more than to inspire YOUR heart and home!
