ta da...here they are~ the finished photo blocks that i showed you in progress in an earlier post...seen here.
i'm very happy with the way they turned out, altho to be honest, they were a lot of work!
but i think i have figured out a way to go much faster for the next batch...the ones i will eventually offer for sale. the labor intense sanding and finishing is what took up most of my time in making these blocks...but on the positive side my arms are getting very buff!
i did receive a few complaints along the way from my oldest daughter Allie, because i took up too much counter space in my kitchen when i was staining and finishing the blocks...like..."there's no place to make my food mom"...and you know how much teenagers love to eat, so i will have to set up a temporary table in my family room next time!!
with the long weekend ahead and now knowing what i am doing(!!) , i should be able to get a ginormous started on the next set of larger blocks!! so exciting!!
