Snow Day Project.
we always catch Jill mid-jump 🙂
Since we were snowed in and Matt didn’t even go into work because it was too cold for his tech’s to even run routes, we decided to get a project done. I bought this amazing shelf unit before we even bought the house last summer. I found it on craigslist and had to drive an hour to get it but it was so worth it! The woman who i bought it from told me that her grandfather was Harry Truman’s tailor and that the shelf was made from his thread spools. Why she wanted to sell it i have no idea. Here is the progression of the project:
(it has been sanded so it actually looks good this color- but before we sanded it it was really not that cute)
Mid-Way: after the coat of red paint. We also had to prime it with a gray primer, but i didn’t take a photo of that step.
After the red dried i used a wood stain to antique it a little bit so it wasn’t SO red.
It is in our bedroom and fits perfectly. one day ill take a photo of our whole room for you.
i just need some type of vase or something tall to go into the center. any ideas?
