The Wall That I Built

My friend and I built this wall.

It's like, a real wall.

We used an old pallet, my idea.

We covered all sides with bead board.

Put a piece of MDF on top.

Finished it off with trim.

This was the big surprise for Bryce.

He said 'It's about time.'

But not even that could curb my enthusiasm for how it turned out.

Now that there is a wall to prevent little children plummeting to their deaths down the concrete basement stairs, I hope to use it as more of a mud room.

See that disgusting vinyl?

Despite my best efforts, it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

At least I don't have to worry about it getting trashed???

Have a great weekend.



  1. love the wall! looks like a real wall...mission accomplished!

  2. rock. I'm mean, I always knew that you rocked, but now you really rock--especially because I ate your breadsticks last night and they were A.MAZING! If I ever need a wall built, I know who to call. :)

  3. I LOVE your wall!! I'll bet you saved BIG TIME making it yourself and it looks pro*fessional!! Just think about all that paint money you saved!! :0)
