2 Down - 15689752 To Go!

Finished up 2 projects this week!
(As always just click on the images if you want to see them bigger!)

First was Sandy's website for her Graphic Design business. She's been working out of her home since she had Liam, and is doing really well! Sand and I have been friends since we shared lockers in 7th grade. Sandy was a piggie locker mate, she denys this, her house is immaculate, but her locker was messy! That's what I wish I had a picture of, our messy locker! Oh the website...
She made a logo quite a bit ago,


and I used that for the website. Which is HERE!

Then, while we were at Disney a couple of weeks ago, Scotty watched our dogs and needed a little project to keep him busy while he was here. Ever since we moved into this house I have wanted custom bookshelves on the family room half wall.

Oh lookie!, I found a picture of the half wall from when we first moved into the house. There's Sandy from Stenson Graphix sitting in the chair! LOL


That's Mike trying to cover his ears (not eyes Mike!), and Lego looking stunned (not bored Lego!) while I tell the stories of Sandy's messy locker! Oh the book shelves...

So while we were at Disney, Scotty made the frame. When I got home we attached them to the wall. He didn't want to do it while I was gone because he wanted to make sure I approved. Scotty is a smart man, he was married for 50 years, I think that has something to do with it! :-)


After they were attached to the wall, I picked out trim I wanted at Lowe's, and we attached that. Well, I sort of held the wood while he hammered.


Mostly because I can't hammer very well standing, let alone while laying on the floor.


Once the trim was all up, two coats of primer, and two coats of paint and sanding in between and you have book shelves!


Then today I filled them up!


Just in case you are wondering whats on the top middle shelf?? That would be all those things that are only priceless to a mom, some of the kids school projects through out the years.. A pink ceremic pig mug by Ian. A ceramic Mom mug by Collin. Eagle jar by Collin. Some kind of Blow fish by Collin. And..... "something" by Ian. I don't know what it is.



That's all she wrote!

I don't think my house is immaculate. But, it is nice of you to say so. Now about our locker... Thanks again for all of your help. You did a superb job.
