Around the house.

I looked as my sewing machine recently and wondered why I haven’t done more sewing recently. And then I remembered this project that took up a full weekend plus some. I am proud to present my faux built-in bookcase in the hall. I used 2 utility shelf units from Ikea , a $5 gallon of ooops paint and some taller 1″ x 3′” uprights. I am very happy with the navy blue, the previous white color was impossible to keep clean with all the toys on the lower shelves.


And this slowly evolving project. Truthfully my hubby has been doing most of the work on this, I  just paint what he builds.This was a big project  and we both did a lot of work on it.  We will add bug screen in spring with a screen door, but until then I still have to spackle the new sheetrock on the inside. Maybe after Christmas. Some sewing first! (yes, that is a typo on the very first picture, sorry kids)
