I found a nice plan for a Shaker-style step the other day and as I had a few hours to kill tonight due to the raining (no cutting the lawn!), I decided to build it. The step only has five pieces so is nice and simple to assemble. I made it out of a piece of knotty pine and was going to stain it but didn’t as I figured it kind of looks clean and nice in an Ikea kind of way. Next up – a breadbox for Josée or may that patio storage box.
