There’s Some New Storage in Town!
Thanks to my handy-hubby, our sun room is sporting some new shelves.
Which are perfect for storing my
Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint stock.
How Convenient Right?
Now my paint & samples are alphabetized & organized.
Totally makes me feel Zen!
I love making our home work hard for us.
And our individual needs.
This isn’t a fancy project, but it’s our latest and I thought I would share.
So! We figured we would take advantage
of all that empty space AND give
my paint stock a perfect new home.
Next on my list.
A little camouflage.
I have a few ideas, but sometimes it takes me a bit to work it over and think it through.
Maybe I’ll gather some pictures and ask you guys for some help?
We were lucky enough to have a bit of extra wood on hand from another project! We Jim ripped it down to size on the table saw to fit our needs and got to work.
All we had to do was buy some shelf brackets and a few connectors for the corners.
Jim screwed the shelf brackets
on the shelves so they were good to go!
We set up the laser level and screwed
the shelf brackets into the wall making
sure everything was nice and straight.
After some clean up, they are filled
and working like a dream.
The corner pieces offer extra strength
and they hold the weight no problem!
(these were a temporary idea, we’ll be adding some
perfectly matched pieces soon.)
Jim wanted to router all the shelves and stain them.. but I thought it was sort of silly to spend the time and energy on that when I knew I was going to cover them up. I’m not that fussy about things that are really just for function.
It was very sweet though!
If you have any ideas for how to
finish this area off..
I am open to suggestions.
Happy Halloween to All.
It’s nasty and stormy here.
Which means, all the kids will go to the mall.
We won’t get any trick or treat visitors.
Have fun with your little ones and cherish these times.
Next thing you know, they will be 16.
