    Yes, me, myself and I, went to home depot yesterday and bought wood, and hardware and went to town in the back yard.

    I borrowed my dads electric screwdriver (I don't even know the proper name for it lol), brought everything into the backyard and just starting building!

    I had NO idea what I was doing, I didn't have any plans or pictures to go by, I just did it!

    It turned out great!

    All I have to do it paint it, hang hooks inside for bridles, and get it to the barn!

    WOOO! Go me!

    It's really big too! About 4.5 feet long, 2.5 feet wide, and 3 feet tall. It will fit a western or english saddle, bridles, halters, surcingles, pads, tons and tons of stuff.

    Pics are up! I'm going to paint it today (I think), so I will put up more pictures when it totally finished!

    Haha thanks! The only thing I've done similar, is put together Ikea furniture, but in my opinion, an 8 yr old could do that! :p
