Hey there. How are you doin' this week?
I'm doing reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal good. Four-day week this week, tomorrow's Friday, got my stencil in the mail today, fun rock concert with the hubs last night, and Alex is making me a surprise supper at this very moment.
Life is good. :)
So 'member I was on the hunt for some wooden crates to use as toy bins? Well I was a bit grumpy that the only ones I could find (and ended up buying) were coated with a shiny, orange-y varnish. My mom offered to strip the varnish off for me and she was able to finish one the other day.
She brought it over the other night so I took a few pictures to show you. I know you love old wooden boxes as much as I do.......
I still need to do a light sanding in some spots as well as add some casters to the bottom. I went looking at a local hardware store and most of the casters were plastic and really ugly. I'll have to check Lowe's and Home Depot this weekend.
I'm really loving the dovetailed corners. I also like how narrow the boxes are so they will fit all snug against the little wall in the bedroom.
Hopefully my mom will bring over the second one this weekend (hint, hint if you're reading this) so I can finish 'em both off and show you how they look in the room.
Oh yeah, here is another inspiration picture for you. I know you like those too.

Well that's it for me for tonight. I'm hoping to catch up on my lack-o-projects this weekend. See you soon!
