Finishing touches.

Mike came in last night and helped me bend the plywood around the forms I created for the furniture.  Bending the wood felt like a workout.  Thank goodness Mike has muscles!  I am starting to get back into shape since I am working long days with lots of physical work:  lifting boards, hammering, sawing, running around the building, multitasking…haha.  I should be set for island living in the summer!

Anyway, here are the forms before a layer of paint…

Later today, a couple of friends helped me paint.  Thank you Emily and Evan!  Everything went so much faster with extra hands.  Check out the colors!

I cannot wait to install this in our currently colorless abode!
