Are you a weekend warrior?

Hubby and I are about to embark on our latest weekend project - putting up chair rail and painting our dining area! 

I'm excited, and I promise I will take pictures and post about it next week!

We are fairly ambitious part-time weekend warriors.  I say part-time, because we don't do a project every weekend ... actually we can be quite lazy some weekends, but ambitious because we usually take on some fairly big projects!

First off ... we built my workshop - you can see a picture of it in this post kind of half finished ... I now have siding and stairs and power!  Although I can't seem to find a picture of it with all of those things
Siding and Wiring:

We also have a fairly extensive garden each year ... this is last year's prepped to plant ... and compost bins that we made from pallets

We also poured a concrete patio at the front of our house.  This is one of those projects that took forever!  Started in May and not finished until December!  ... We poured concrete at our old house and I seriously have NO plans on ever doing it again ... the preparation is backbreaking work!
clearing out plants:
Prep after digging and tamping and filling, and leveling and measuring (the back breaking parts!)
Finally finished!  I LOVE my patio!

I really wish I had taken pictures of before and after of installing the cabinets for my work area in the house ... but you can see the finished ones here ... and yes, I still need to paint the darn things!  One day, one day ...

So, now, time to start on the newest weekend warrior project!  I would love if you would leave comments and links to some of your projects!!
