The long awaited results are in! Here’s the video of us awkwardly talking about who had the best idea….
As a recap, (and for those of you that don’t get to watch the video because you don’t know how to press play….mom) the Bower Buildoff is a competition that we created where Jeremy and I go head to head to create the best DIY project with preset parameters.
He gets to choose one parameter and I get to choose one. In this case, we decided that it would need to be a project built with one or more of these thread spools and it could only take one hour.
After we built our projects, you got to see the final reveal and blindly vote on what you liked best. The winner would be victorious with a Gold Hammer trophy and the loser would have to jump in a freezing pond in the middle of winter. Just kidding. There is no prizes or consequences…unless you count pride and the title of winner that you get to lord over your spouse. Which we totally do.
The projects were both something we could use in our home and we didn’t spend a ton of money on either one. Here are the final reveal photos…
The votes were tallied and the winner was decided.
Yup. The lamps kicked bench bootie.
So who created the DIY craftiness? Well…I think most of you already knew. Here’s who built what…
Dudes. I thought you had my back. It wasn’t even a close race. Like he was Hussein Bolt (edit* apparently he now spells his name Usain…sorry fastest man alive!) and I was LJ…who is not walking…or crawling…just drooling. I guess that makes me first loser. Until you remember that now I have new lamps and a new bench. Which makes me the winner of the universe. Plus…the lamps were totally my idea first 🙂
