[Photos] My Birthday “Building” Week
Industrial Shelves. Suddenly I NEED them. NOW. Much like I needed the cabinet space in the kitchen and the new light…my heart wanted it. So, I said….
Let my Birthday Building Week COMMENCE!!!
2 x 12″ x 16′ Select Pine lumber for cutting and staining my future shelves!
Ha! Girl over matter!
Done! (with Grueling Day #2)
128 linear feet sanded, primed, dried, flipped and stained! Very grateful for unexpected rain reprieve (God giving me presents early!). If anybody likes to get high off of noxious fumes-you missed sitting in my office!
It’s also pipe cleaning day! I’ll update that later- the best solvent in the Universe is sold at Dollar Tree!!
60 ft of CLEANED Black Steel Pipe – A Miracle courtesy of elbow grease + LA Totally Awesome Cleaner. All wood done on the BOTTOM.
Tomorrow I begin “demolition”
Time to prep my spaces (empty and shift 5 bookcases and remove 18 pieces of art from the walls…)
Part Two is Measuring, finding studs (don’t laugh!) and boring a lot of holes in my beautiful dark wood shelves. May the Force be with Me! I declare my independence from my old look and Feel of my home today.
Dream? Work through entire day to full install and lacquer!
Demo Done!!! Empty space – bare walls. (House destroyed!)
Real MacGuyvering underway…countering challenges as they arise – using my brain! Wrong bit size meant emergency Lowe’s run… FYI- a 3/4 inch pipe requires a 1 1/8 inch spade bit. Turned my porch into “workshop” in the rain.
It is not level. It is not anchored and I am in love with it anyway!
Tomorrow (the 6th) is my birthday and I hope to have my shelves in place for it. I’ll do as much as I can. I am worth ALL of this and more!
