I'm Bob Vila.

It's great when you get new stuff.  I mean, I got this new sewing machine and I'm loving it... the hubs won't let it sleep in the bed with us though... the big meanie.  And since we don't have a crafting room (I weep about this nightly), I needed a little space for my sewing machine and the Silhouette.

I bought a 2' x 2' sheet of wood.  It's pine.  As if I know the differences between wood.

As you can see, I drew lines on it.  I needed four pieces of wood, each 6" wide and 2' long.  Since the wood was already 2' x 2', this was simple.  The hubs cut it up and I put it together using wood glue and finishing nails.

 I used the free paint I got from Ace Hardware (THEY'RE GIVING IT AWAY AGAIN ON SATURDAY!) and gave it a couple coats of paint.

I bought some trim at Lowe's and spray painted it white and used wood glue to attach it to the front.

And just like that, I became a carpenter.  I think I have enough experience to build an entire house, complete with a deck.  I just need A LOT of sheets of 2' x 2' pine.

  1. Wow. Look at you. I am IMPRESSED. Great use of resources and space.

    I am going to have to check out my Ace...I had no idea about this giving away paint for free thing :)

  2. Wow! Bob would be proud. Good for you. You give me hope. ~Kelly

  3. I know I've said this before, but it deserves re-stating: you are absolutely hilarious (and infinitely talented!) I just love reading your blog.

  4. Hi Bob Villa - I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! ;-) You can pick it up here:

  5. That is great. I am so afraid to do wood projects. You might have inspired me to try my hand at my own shelves. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
