It’s an age old question.
So….for this project it’s either a super inexpensive undertaking….just a couple pieces of plywood….
or a rather expensive wall treatment….using the old window taken out during our bathroom remodel…expensive.
Naturally, I’m a half full type of person.
So this thing was Cha-eap.
This beast took me forever and I about chucked it out more than once…
when my arms were sore from Dremeling
and I was experiencing break-in feelings from breaking glass
and it looked terrible
and the wood glue wasn’t sticking
and there was yet another trip to Home Depot.
But, here we are.
And I’m glad I stuck with it.
I moved the antiques sign over to the living room above the couch.
This is what you see when you walk through the front door.
For this select five minutes.
Obviously my house never looks this clean.
I’m going to put the days of the week above each column and then chalkboard a place to write in the month.
The ladder will eventually hold family pictures.
Oh, and be attached to the wall
so that when Spencer is throwing a fit
about not wanting to eat his black beans at dinner
and kicks back
and knocks it over
it won’t hit Elizabeth on the head.
Way less drama in that ladder’s future.
Well, I’m sure the rest of you are being way more responsible and doing things like decorating for Christmas.
Instead of, like us, rearranging every single bedroom in the house.
Which means, when you take a break from your normalcy, you can hop on the ol’ blog and read a post about a bedroom update, coming in the next week.
You know, now that we have a working computer again.
Feel free to leave a comment sharing how much you missed me, and how a 7’ x 6’ calendar is a completely reasonable dining room accent.
