read

This little 2×4 industrial shelf was all thanks to a challenge… and one very messy kitchen counter! I have a small kitchen, with half of the countertop devoted to my day planner and calendar.

The day was ‘family day.’ And it was GORGEOUS out. Not wishing to stay locked indoors, I suggested to my son we go for a ‘family bike ride.’ Fun, right?! Wrong. He had no interest.  Ah, drat. Well, I refused to miss out on that gorgeous day, so I geared up, and was on the […]
