DIY Video: Silent Bench Building

I’ve been toying with the idea of adding video to this website for some time. I work with a creative bunch of people who have piqued my interest in the medium, but with broommaking, house building, taking pictures of MysteryMan, and the enormity of my dirty laundry pile, taking on yet another hobby didn’t seem like a prudent idea.

But you know, I wanted to do it. And while I am a woman who can give up french fries –which on some days are my only reason for living– for an entire year, I have no willpower when it comes to not indulging in new projects.

So instead I compromised with myself, bought a cheap little Flip, and decided the theme for any DIY videos you see on this site will be “amature, fun, and nonsensical” (I do set the bar high for myself, don’t I?)


DIYdiva: Building a Picnic Table Bench from kitliz on Vimeo.

I was going to wait to post this with the plans for the awesome little picnic table I built, since it essentially shows the process of assembling both the benches and the table, but if you can’t tell the theme of the day here was indulgence, not denial. (Which explains why two of my meals today consisted of soft serve icecream instead of anything with actual nutritional value.) And so you get video now, plans later.

Sometimes I love being a grown up.
