On the decorating front, I've finished with 2.5 projects so I thought I'd post some pictures of two of them (you'll have to wait on the third one for a few more days).
|This project started out as 2 of these simple birch Bekvam spice racks from Ikea.|
|And ended up these stained front facing book shelves for K in our living room.|
I used a dark brown acrylic paint that I wiped on using paper towels to stain them.
Now before I get hate mail about K using these as shelves to climb out the window
she isn't that much of a climber anyway and secondly it's on the first floor so if she
should manage to get onto the shelves and through the glass, she's only going down
about a foot and a half (God forbid). I got the idea from this nursery on Ohdeedoh.com.
|The other project I finished today was hanging A's|
Martin Backpacker guitar in our bedroom. As you
can see he also has a full size guitar on a floor stand
(and two more in cases in the closet.)
In other news, we've been having a visitor to these parts recently.
|This cute little fellow comes to our window several times a day.|
|It might be due to the fact that I leave cans of tuna for him.|
|But seriously, how could I not? Look at that cute face!|
|And he doesn't even mind an audience :) I've decided his name is Bob because of|
his bobtail. We aren't sure if that's how it's supposed to be or if it was from a fight.
