There is just something about working hard on a project that feels good. And when you finish it and it's what you wanted, it feels great.
Here is a fairly recent project I completed and would like to share. It's my son's dresser. I got it for $35 at a flea market. I sanded, stained, and polyurethane. On the back I took off the plywood backing and replaced it with a fresh piece that I painted with chalkboard paint and put on a nice trim. All by myself!
