Sunday morning coffee & maple farmhouse tables, a few of my favorite things.

I was offered the great pleasure of talking to these bright young students at the Washington Kirkwood Regional Center about all the construction industry has to offer them earlier this week.
As Franklin D. Roosevelt said, "We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."
All hands on deck this weekend to finish up install of the kerdi waterproofing system. Or should I say beaks? πŸ€”πŸ“

A little Sunday landscaping does the mind some good. It truly amazes me what landscaping can do for a property's curb appeal, only 214 more edgers to go.

A lot of people ask why we are putting so much effort into a house that isn't our forever home; why we don't put up new over the old and move on to the next like others before us. This is not our forever home. I can't say if we'll end up bringing babies home to this house. I can't say our grandbabies will drive by and talk about this being our first home in 60 years. But I think there's something to be said about doing something right even if no one else is.

Happy Mother's day! I got to spend the afternoon in the shop with one of my sweet nieces. She fell asleep in the middle of my lecture about different hardwood species but that's okay, there will be many more of these days to come. I hope these kind of days stay with her; I hope they show her the beauty of hard work and most of all I hope they inspire her to chase her dreams.

She speaks for herself

The feeling of spring is in the air, squeezed in some spring cleaning today inbetween building these table bases. Anyone else love spring cleaning? Not sure if I'm refreshed by the feeling of a decluttered space or I just have an unnatural affection for throwing things in a dumpster πŸ€”

What a beaut, got to break out the new spray over the weekend for this trashcan cabinet and it was well worth the investment.

Proud to introduce the newest member of the Sexton Design Company team, Rue Jane Stutzman, she's going to make one heck of a carpenter.

The clients will be adding their own handles/pulls to all of the drawers for this set, but I've been looking at them so long without that I kind of love it. I'll probably be researching spring loaded drawer slides for the next week to see what I can conjure up for whoever feels the same as I do!

Signed, sealed & delivered. Kind of like dropping your first born off on their first day of kindergarten, but I'll be okay.

Wrapping up the metal + wood bedroom set this week. I strive for quality over quantity with every piece and this set took much longer than anticipated. But boy it was worth it when you take a second to step back and look at them.

Ringing in the new year with my boys. We are ready to put 2020 & hauling buckets of plaster behind us. πŸŽ‰πŸ”¨

Finishing the drawers on this console center and it made me wonder what was the last piece I did with drawers... come to find out it was the dresser I built for myself the summer after my senior year. I'd say these turned out pretty good considering its been over 5 years since my last set πŸ˜… They were definitely way less traumatic then my dresser drawers. How crazy is it to think I've been doing this that long!

Happy Friday! What's everyone's plans for the weekend? Last weekend this bench got dropped off, its part of the metal + wood bedroom set I've been working on. Hoping to get the bases on the next few pieces of this set completed and start decorating the house for Christmas πŸŽ„ As much as you can decorate a construction zone...

If you saw a Silverado with a piece of flat strap duct taped (lime green duct tape) to the passenger side today, no worries that was just me delivering sliding barn door hardware πŸ˜… Check out the headboard that got finished up a few weeks ago, it ended up taking three guys to install it 😏 I hope you are all getting outside and enjoying what is most likely that last nice weekend of the year!

This headboard is the first piece in a metal + wood bedroom set going into a remodeled farmhouse. I dont work with metal that often and am amazed with how it turned out! Hope everyone is enjoying this gorgeous Sunday weather, I heard someone say we may get snow in 2 weeks πŸ™„

Have you ever heard of Siberian Elm? During college I worked at a tree farm and a tree service company. I cut down & planted many Elm trees but hadn't ever heard of Siberian Elm. It may not be a household name like walnut, oak or maple but she sure is pretty. This wood actually came from a client's property, they had the tree milled and dried so I could create a beautiful farmhouse table for them. I can't wait to see the natural color of it, it's going to be absolutely beautiful.

Such a fun little build for a sweet little guy. This barn door baby gate is going to look so beautiful in its family's beautiful new home! Stain is a custom mix to match their home interior, I wish the picture did it more justice!

Labor day weekend turned out to be very labor filled for us! We installed a 70' foot retaining wall (one of two) along the front of the drive and I can't believe the curb appeal it added. We'll be taking it a little slower tomorrow, not by choice, I don't know if we'll be able to move.

I've been neglecting social media for a little while now, apologizes, I was busy getting this cowboy to vow to share his french fries with me forever. I loved every second of our wedding day, minus waking up with food poisoning, but I am READY to jump back into projects. I've got a long list of projects to share with you starting with bathroom flooring this weekend!
