One of the products I fell head over heels in love with was their pink wood stain. PINK! As you know, Eleanor’s room is a plethora of fuchsia and we had a bit of a lego situation going on. I decided to build her a simple storage bin for her legos and stain it… yep… pink!
A few weeks ago I shared our colorful fixed up back porch. Despite all the new furniture and new styling, I was still missing one seat. I wanted to seat 6 real-live adults out there, and perching on one of the ottomans didn’t seem like the best solution. Thank goodness for Remodelaholic and her 2×4 and More challenge… I had an excuse to BUILD SOMETHING!
I am the worst.
When it comes to building things, I LOVE it. Roaming the wood aisle, sketching out my plans, getting all my pocket holes drilled… but I am crap when it comes to giving you all the plans! So I’m going to share Oliver’s new trundle bed, but you’ll have to wing it a little bit when it comes to making it. M’kay?
I’ve gotten to the point where I’m pretty precise when it comes to taking measurements. I’ve turned the corner from operating in quarter inch increments to embracing the 8ths. And the millimeters. Point being, I measure twice and cut once. (Unless it’s molding, in which case I cut 17 times.) But doors. Doors are a different beast. They require measurements to the fractional millimeter. They also require hours. And HOURS. Which was TOTALLY worth it for this salvaged door I made over for the powder room. I. Love. It.
