Today was deemed a family day, so I didn’t have time to work on anything home bound. And that doesn’t make for very interesting blog material…
Something I’ve learned in the past 31 days of writing so much is to ensure there are pictures stored up, so a new story can emerge any time. I’m on it!
So I scanned through my SD card and found this tutorial I forgot to blog about. See? It works!
I could have been all clever and not told you the part of having no content, but this 31 day thing is about how to do what we gotta do, even when the chips are down. So, you get the plain truth this round.
When revamping the ‘ol workshop you’ve heard way too much about at this point, I had these two newish shelves fresh from the curb.
But.. they needed a little junkin’ up.
Then the fun part came…
Can you feel the adrenaline hit of the find yet?! You’re cold, with frozen knuckles gripping an ice cold garbage can as you dump your trash over the edge, but THERE IT IS. Instant Hawaii!
“Discovery of no ordinary shelf.”
Novel material here… book deal please?
I’m trying to pump up a boring shelf into an exciting event. How am I doing?
Anyway, every straight edge got hit with a hammer and chisel to create… well, a mess. A light sanding took care of splinter material.
Here’s why I painted first. Chipping away at the wood after painting simply exposed more wood.
A little MMSMP antique wax enriched the wood edges and gave the paint a little lustre.
My no book deal No Ordinary Shelf then got mounted to the reclaimed wood workshop wall, with a branch added for twine and tape. It’s perfect!
And all the workshop gear lived happily ever after. 🙂
