While shopping for furniture I came across Pep-Boys, I stopped by and they had a couple stools tagged as 27.90. I snagged these and the rung up as 47 something. I took the cash sheer back to look at the shelf tag, she called the manager and I got a price match so both of these cost $62.00.
My Grandson was excited and helped putting these together. He has clamed one as his forever.

I'll start a new topic for my Wife's project "Covered Pergola" but for now they got an early start, and asked if I wanted to have a ramp made with the left-overs...... ummmm let me think about that.... Yea! Anyhow, we are just waiting on the concrete now.

Way better than I could have done. Pergola construction starts Monday. She is happy with the "left overs" :dancingbanana:

Now that I have the seating ironed out, I was checking out a possible new TV to replace the Vintage one I have. 38 - 40" should work good. And my buddy recommended a "mini bar" to go in the corner. Hmmmm I do want to move the mini fridge, and the Pep Boy stools would go well with that.

Tractors look to be enjoying the sun! Looks like a good spot for the TV.

Thanks Kenny, One of these days I might get a FEL, which would be a great help with picking up the rocks, for now it's just a rake and flat shovel.

If you aren't brand loyal...

 

http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1219081527445

 

I picked up one of those last feb at best buy for under 250 bucks.  42" 1080P LED.  Seems the going rate now is 299.

 

I bought it for my little work apartment, and it has been a great TV.  Good pictures, super lite(I bet its under 12lbs), great picture.  Only draw back is it has limited hook ups.  2 HDMI and 1 Coax cable.  But otherwise it works great. 

 

I recommend it for an extra TV.  I read lots of good and bad reviews, but so far my review would be 100% satisfied.

There is no VGA hookup.  But all of my computers have HDMI for TVs.

 

I bought one of those autoswitch HDMI boxes.  That way whatever I turn on is detected and switched to that input.

Yea, I was doing some searching and all the ones I looked at only had HDMI, I would lihe a RCA or two also as inputs. I may need to look into a auto switch also. Like everything else this is going to cost more than I planned. TV + Wall Mount + Switch box + new cables.

Did I miss anything?
