~hearth bench~

When we bought this house in May, 
we were really pleased that there was a fireplace in the living area.
But, the fireplace didn't have a hearth. :-(

Enter, my Dad, who has taken up wood working since his retirement.
He asked us to describe a bench that we could put in front of the fireplace and use as a hearth.
So we told him what we would like to have. 

And that is exactly what he built! 

Isn't it beautiful?? 

We just love it!
Thanks Dad!
