So there’s a fellow spouse on base who has a blog called “Last Project For Awhile”. This other spouse is actually an amazingly talented super crafty person, whereas I prefer just the occasional, practical, not super-detailed project but I still adore this title because that’s how I feel almost every time I’m working on some little project around the house; Boy, this is kind of a pain. This is not turning out exactly how I pictured it. This is my last project for a while. But somehow, more opportunities keep popping up. Anyway, here are some of my recently completed projects.
|Here’s the corn hole set I made at the wood shop that will be available for play at the “wedding” next May–ready to be painted!|
|Also, the desk and side table set in the study got a little face lift! 🙂 This furniture was generously donated to us by my parents and it’s been in my family since before I was born but it was time for an update. Here’s the before…|
And after! Nothing like some paint and new handles to quickly, easily, and cheaply turn around some furniture. Welcome to the White Furniture Club, desk and side thingies!
Also, when I was taking out the drawers from one of the side pieces, I found the warranty information for my parents’ old Hitachi camcorder (Hello, 1984!) and a confirmation card that my Aunt Susie had sent to my brother( ca. 1997?). Talk about a blast from the past!
