A project in progress
or better titled "the things I will drag home". lol
As a test to my DHs endurance , the look on his face was less priceless this time than it was with the stinky chicken coop china cabinet but still, he did "the sigh".
I know , it's only June but it's time for me to start planning for Christmas. I have chosen the color scheme specifically for my son in his school colors as my "baby" will be a Senior this school year and graduate in the spring.
I wanted to "pedestal" his tree somehow ,but keep it safe for all the furkids, so enter the idea I've seen on several blogs of putting it "in" a dresser. Ok, now to find a dresser of the right size... hmmm
I had almost given up hope of finding the right size that could work until I stopped at my favorite TS the other day. The poor Manager has over the years became my friend and is no longer shocked by my odd requests.
I asked her if she had anything that would work. She thinks a minute and says she thinks so. She sends a guy out back (the only thing out back is the dumpster...oh gawd!!) and we chat for a bit.
The guy comes back toting this ....
Upon inspection, it's worse than it looks and is badly water damaged at the bottom but she says she has faith I'll make it work and tells the man to load it up. I have hope! *score* She laughs as I walk away happy as a clam , saying "bring me a picture when you finish it!!".
I got out in the garage and started working on it today... I've decided I'm a glutton for punishment with my bright ideas but I digress....
A hammer , chisel ,and a half hour with the elec sander later .... here is the end of day 1
Tomorrow is drill the holes and primer. Will add to this as I go.
