Morning all !!!
Last week I showed you my antique Farmhouse Table -
Now look at it very closely and tell me if you can see where I could add to that!!!
Knowing my kitchen is extremely tiny and space is at a premium................
Did you guess? Here's another look - a close up - can you tell where I'm going now?
Well I can plainly see that there's extra SPACE down there - that's a no-no when every square foot counts for desperately needed storage..................
Suzan says - John there's some space at the bottom of the table for storage
John says- Don't start cramming things down there Suzan - PLEASE - it's going to look awful
Suzan says - Well I don't want to put things on the floor
John says - Ok good - because it'll look crowded and messy
Suzan says - exactly - BUT we could build a shelf to place on the bottom of it................
John says - Well that'll look ridiculous - this is an antique - you're going to take away the value
John says - I don't want to start hammering and nailing into this piece
Suzan says - but it wouldn't take any nails or hammering or anything at all
John says - is it just going to magically float there?
Suzan says - yes actually - that's exactly what it'll do
John says - I'm NOT A CARPENTER..................
Suzan sasy - you built a bench in the Spring - you can surely make a shelf!!!!
Here's the bench he made - using pallet wood
wouldn't you say he's a carpenter?
John says - You always have to go one step too far - ALWAYS................
But he cut the wood for me exactly to my specifications
and guess what?
it's magically floating - no nails - no hammering..................
I gave it a quick coat of white paint and abracadabra - more storage
Look at all that storage - you might as well have given me a new kitchen - I'm so thrilled with this!!!
Sometimes it takes so little to make me happy - sometimes.
Have a great day all -
Partying with the following Ladies!!!
