Still at it ...

My goal this weekend was to move the wood stuff out of the house.
But first it had to all be finished.
That meant a little more paint, stain on some things, poly on others.
Hooks and hangers on everything that needed them.
And my totally unrealistic goal was to have it all done Friday.
Why wouldn't a person be nuts?
What fun is it to always live in the land of reality?!

My hooks and hangers came in the mail while my work week was still underway.
I do love my Fridays off.
Although a lovely relaxing massage or pedicure might be really nice,
I rather prefer to spend my day playing with this stuff.

I think my all time favorite thing is to take a piece of junk, use it to practice and have it end up being my favorite.
It has happened more than once or twice.

The hooks in the above photo were on sale at Hobby Lobby this week.
50% off is the only way to buy anything over there.
The black coat hooks in the photo above the above one .. whew! are from dlawless hardware.
The prices over there gave me great giggles and smiles.
Drawer pulls attached upside down make great chalk holders.
That unphotographed one might just be another favorite of mine.

I have a few more things stacked up in that unnavigable spare bedroom of mine.
It became more habitable as I moved things outside. At least I managed that!

In the meantime, I'm often up at 6 a.m. on my days off browsing the internet for more ideas.
Or, I have an idea for something, but am not sure how to accomplish it.
A few thousand keystrokes later I find it.
It is like hunting a treasure.
Seriously makes me nearly giddy.

In the meantime, I have a path (and I mean a path!) through the middle of our one car garage for Jari to walk through. I'm really hopeful that he doesn't need anything from behind, under or on top of my precariously stacked treasures ... until March.

Recently he offered to share his garage with me. We don't even have one yet. He keeps wanting a shop the size of Texas ... I'm thinking it needs to be the size of Alaska.

'Cuz I have issues.
