Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 543
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
Our weather out west has been SO good lately, I’ve been hacking away at outside projects this week.
Most recently, I worked on the garden shed yet again, this round sharing the framing work. What. A. Job. This was my first time framing an actual building so you can bet it pushed me past my own limits often. In fact, I’m surprised I didn’t give up! haha
But check this out. I made a door. A REAL DOOR! And learned so much in the process. So this post (Part 2) shares how I framed it up, along with my ups and downs and beginner framing tips… so you don’t make all the mistakes I made!
I also finally put away a puzzle that had been out for too long. I guess once the weather turned good, I lost interest… for now. But it was a mess, thanks to two shedding cats. So I came up with an epic way to get that puzzle squeaky clean HERE for next round again!
In other news, I’m currently right in the middle of designing new fall stencils, and then I’m moving right to Christmas next! So if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see, feel free to share in comments! I’d love to know.
I just wish there were about 3 of me right now, because I’m also siding my garden shed, painting the house, trying to grow a new lawn, and wishing for a vacation sometime in the fall. Dare I leave with all this going on?!
While I mull that one over, let’s feast our eyes on some pretty top-shelf highlights from last week’s party… get ready to gasp…
