Make and Listen Along
I've been itching to join Dawn Suzette over at Simple Things Notebook on her Thursday link up. I enjoy reading each week the blog posts that participate, so here I am diving in. You thought I would show more knitting didn't you? Well, this time I thought I'd share what my husband remade a few weeks back.
This shelf was an old beat up shelf with the bottom ledge completely missing, and yet we saved it in the basement. We are notorious at having a difficult time throwing stuff away. And you can't donate a broken shelf. So I was sitting and thinking (I do that sometimes) about how I wanted to move my dying plants closer to the sliding glass door and have all of my cookbooks in the kitchen easily accessible. I've shopped at stores, again too cheap to pay money for a piece of furniture that is not solid wood.
I remembered the sad shelf, brought it up and used the two remaining intact shelves for some plants. My husband offered to replace all the wood and spray paint the metal braces and did so within 48 hours. As you can see the end result is lovely, has memories and most of all cost us nothing at all. He has wood in his wood stash, like I have yarn in my yarn stash-but yarn stashing is much more fun than wood stashing-just saying.
I believe the plants are much happier with more sunlight and seem to be doing well, as long as I don't water them. For some reason I tend to over water plants...so now I try to water once every three urges to water. It seems to be working.
I've been listening to my podcasts and playing catch up. Here is a brief list of my current listens (out of many!):
