This was exactly what I thought would happen when JR and I decided to make our own coffee table together.

In my humble opinion, DIY projects never seem to work out they way you planned. Sometimes they turn out better, maybe you ended up getting materials on sale, and sometimes (as in our case) you learn things the hard way. We failed to follow the sage advice of measure twice cut once, but besides that... I am absolutely thrilled with how its coming together.
As you can see by the pictures JR is the handy one in this group - he also looks quite stunning in plaid if I do say so myself.
We aren't quite done yet, but I will be sure to put some pics up when we are!
What about you, ever have any DIY projects that didn't quite go as planned?
