My father is very handy. He can literally build anything you want. When Britt and I bought our new house, we knew we would be spending a lot of time on our front porch. It is the South, after all! We just needed some seating. Of course, Dad was happy to oblige. He built some rather sturdy benches for us. The only thing they were missing was a personal touch. The solution: I painted this folk-inspired design right onto the wood. The bright ochre color really pops on the white-washed wood. And look, Minnie approves too!
