1000 Pageviews and Yard Stick Benches

First of all, a big shout out to the friends, followers and people who have viewed this blog. We have hit over the 1000 page view mark! Milestones are exciting. Hopefully you liked what you saw.

Secondly, as much as we want to showcase Flat River's furniture, we also want this to be a blog that showcases other topics of interest. Of course the main focus is still to get the FRF name out there and to show you the products being made, but in the future you may also find personal stories, how-to's, topics we are interested in, things that inspire us, etc. By expanding the content, hopefully you all will find this a place you visit on a regular basis. 

That being said, today I'm going to share someone else's creation that sparked a thought. Do you remember this little piece?


It has since found a home, but I could not help but think about it when I stumbled across this stool at Shabby Love's blog.

Shabby Love's yard stick stool

The yard sticks and rulers reminded me of that schoolhouse feel. A similar bench would be perfect for someone using that desk for its intended purpose. 

It's amazing the items that can be re-purposed to create something new and wonderful. Those old rulers could have ended up in a dump somewhere, but luckily someone had enough creativity to see them as something else. Well done!
