I am reposting this and crossing my fingers that the issues will just go away.
Any magic wands out there?
Wednesday was a beautiful day!
The heat and humidity took a tumble and it was about 70 and sunny!
So, I was feeling rather inspired from a few projects that some wonderful gals had done and decided it was time to bite the bullet and try one of my own.
I am talking about a desk.
Love how she decorated the top, so inspiring.
Deborah, from With All my Heart....Deborah, and her hubby built this beautiful farmhouse style desk together.
So beautiful and I love the color that she chose.
So I grabbed all the scrap wood that we had.
Framed it all up and attached the top boards with fastener thingies that I had.
I attached a smaller board to raise the table up a bit but then later had to cut the legs down because it was too high.
So far so good and it is even level!! :)
I had left over paint from the family room, Simply White from BM, so I used that to cover it in all it's lushes whiteness.
Added some treasures that I found in our basement like this lantern.
I gave this a couple coats of white paint that I had left over.
Stole some driftwood from the bathroom and some starfish that I had along with a glass bottle topped with a shell (I saw this somewhere in blogland and for the life of me I can't remember where now, if you know, please let me know) and a picture of my mom at Glen Lake holding her cat when she was younger. :)
Now I have a place to blog and talk to you all of you!
I can look out my window at the birds and feel the warm breeze come through our slider.
The chair came from my grandpa. I am told that he made this one along with another one that my brother has.
I painted it white of course and shabbied it up a bit.
I love this chair and now I can use it, not that I couldn't before but there was just no where to put it.
I was also able to bust out the jig saw again and start the first piece for my son's new shark room!!
I drew a shark the best that I could and cut him out like I did the whale.
God bless scrap wood! :)
I would say that he is pretty happy with it.
The cost of these projects = NOTHING!!!!!
Oh, I also wanted to show you my other whale the I carved from a solid piece of wood with my hand tools......
