Add a little chunk to your life..
I have been working on my mudroom reno now for...ummm...nevermind,lets just say,a while.
So we started by ripping up some old flooring due to mold and ended up replacing a whole lotta subfloor too.
This was what I was thinking about..I just love this but as usual things have taken a bit of a turn......
I had these old railway spikes that although my hubby may roll his eyes and groan everytime I drag something new home....he actually feeds my addiction to reuse old and interesting things because...he brought me home a couple buckets full of these things.
Now to be honest..I knew I had wanted them for something...so he did bring me some home but I forgot what I wanted them for so they've been sitting in a bin in the shed for uh...two years? Yep ,sounds right.
I knew I wanted to make a really chunky shelf so I ordered up some 1 1/2 inch pine rough lumber.They've also been sitting since...June but that's not my fault the guy never called me to say they were done.
I managed to convince hubby that this shelf had to be done by this weekend.We have company coming after all and even though the room isn't done....I wanted my shelf up.
So I helped him cut and plane and I sanded and he screwed and I painted and stained and together we made my shelf.
(It's level even though the floor and ceiling aren't)
Then I proceeded to make it pretty and he said....you're putting junk on it?Rolled his eyes and walked away.
I guess he thought I was going to use it for useful things...The fan is useful,right?
(btw...I love the colour that's why I bought it!)
I like it.
No I LOVE it!
