Meet Alex…

A few months ago I showed you a cute table and told you about Alex in this post. After I met him in person we started talking about all the things we like to do and happened to hit it off. We’ve done a few projects together and have decided that our talents compliment each other well.

So upon that note, I would like to introduce you to Alex:

Awww… Isn’t he adorable? Ok, not fair, I stole this one from his facebook profile shots.

Alex has ten years in the construction industry and I am always amazed with his knowledge base and skill set. Here is what he looks like in more modern times:

Alex loves to spray finishes, I have never tried it using anything more than a spray can from the hardware store. His pieces are amazing in a completely different way than mine are and I love it. He loves to build furniture too- that’s actually his passion. You can see more of that on his Facebook page here.

Our first major project together was this incredible pallet sofa:

(The post on this IS coming, I promise. I wanted to introduce him before I got lots of “Hey! Who’s that guy?” emails.)

Basically the plan is to be able to pump out a LOT more posts and working with someone will make that better. Plus, he keeps me from killing myself when I try to do something wacky… kind of my own personal Al Borland. (Yes, this has already happened on more than one occasion)

Alex tells me he used to really like fishing… he doesn’t have a lot of time for that anymore. Between work, building and painting furniture, and his adorable girlfriend (yep, sorry ladies), he’s maxed out his calendar… now he’s agreed to work with me… and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t realize what he’s in for yet.

Let’s all wish him luck, shall we?

      Tee hee! Yes, he IS all of those things and I am very blessed to have met him! He isn’t here this year…which is too bad because there is so much up here that could really use his “touch”. EVERYONE needs someone like Alex- he’s awesome!

    Good Luck Alex! You will need it to work with that wacky gal, but as I’m sure you know, so well worth it. She has so many great creative ideas and is so talented. I’m sure you make a totally awesome team!
