Construction and Restruction

As promised I wanted to keep you in the loop on progress of the shop and other fun projects going on over here!
In a matter of just over three weeks we have the structure of the shop up. We next will do the sheeting which should take a day if all goes well. We had some of the out cropping dropped off and Joe placed it. We are still deciding what stain we will use as our original colors once on the wood we weren’t in love with so that’s a focus this upcoming week!

On to my restruction!  I mentioned before I have been collecting pieces go furniture to make over or do some restruction on but sanding has honestly been the most I’ve done until these past three days.  I can now add clamps and wood glue to my list of tools that aren’t just out there for men to use!  As I took on the desk joe brought home a few months back and due to lack of garage space found itself in various places where it got all nice and rusty and looked like the fire pit was the best home for it.  I daily eye it up knowing there’s something I can do as I have kids that love to color and craft! So three days ago I grabbed my hand sander and went to town!  Turning rust to silver again is the weirdest yet one of those rewarding things you can’t explain but love!  I’m pretty sure the pipe was home to a family of bees as they wouldn’t stop!  My German shepherd was jumping at the them like a crazy dog!  Anyway, I got my hands on my chalkboard paint. As well as my chalk paints and got painting.  My vision was kid friendly but fun!  I love these two colors and will work for the playroom but might be a tad too carnival theme for anywhere else!  As you will notice I have my clamp on the seat…halfway through sanding the seat back and two end slabs just fell off the desk!  Hence the mentioning of wood glue!  So here you have my first restruction project!

So on to the next project!  Barbie Dollhouse for S for Christmas!  My dad will do the build, I will decorate!  I provided the house size/dimensions!  Dad’s way quicker than I with the saw!  Hope to have rough house to show next week!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Love the desk, the colors are perfect. It will look fabulous in the play room or even a corner of the dining room…I can’t wait to see the doll house..The office/garage looks amazing..
