One of this week's projects has been shelf construction. Though we've got plenty of space, there aren't a lot of places to put trinkets or unload books. I was in serious need of a place to stack my stuff.
We looked at the store but the shelves were pretty pricey for the quality so we decided to buy a sheet of lumber and cut our own.
A few coats of paint (and a few more yet to come) and some measuring, drilling, screwing and leveling later, the shelves are taking shape.
Just in time too. The games have been stacked in the corner of our bedroom and I can't tell you how awful a mess three curious girls can make with dozens of board, card and domino games. Let's just say it looks like an explosion. Once the shelves are finished, order will return.
|Braces up--time for the shelves!|
|One more coat of paint and they'll be ready! (Oh, Kate, you persistent monkey).|
