The wonderful world of crates.
The wonderful world of crates. I don’t have the foggiest idea how to get around repeating the title [I’m rolling my eyes right now] in the first line of the first paragraph. It has to do with “readability” and it frankly puzzles me. If you are a WordPress genius and can help me figure that out I will name a tree in our backyard after you. Or don a tutu and dance a dance of jubilation. ~sigh~ I’m a Pinterest fan. There are some creative, wonderful, very clever ideas to be found there. I’ve been pinning crate and pallet ideas for several months trying to find one that inspired me to DO something — like make a crate thingy.
We’ve lived in this home for eight years which is a VERY long time in Teresa years.
[Very similar to dog years.]
Which only means that I needed to make a change or two.
I love change.
I certainly do.
It keeps life fresh and new and different and right.
But that could be an entirely different blog post.
Back to living in the same house for twice as long as I’ve ever lived in a place.
I needed to make a change or two. Or three. Or as many as I wanted.
#1–I painted part of the wall a beautiful, bright [but not too bright] color of fabulous.
[Ignore the creative stack of crates — we’ll come back to that in a moment.]
#2–I switched out the curtains in the living room.
[They are a deep brown now]
#3–I painted the base of lamp we inherited from the Handsome Dude’s parents [it was green glass] and ‘wondered up’ the lampshade.
[Before I saw such a lampshade on pinterest. For real.]
The crates are glued, but not cut.
This one is easier on your eyes.
Or maybe not.
You might have noticed that the glued crate structure is upside down.
Here’s a side-by-side just for the fun of it.
You can see that it was flipped, right?
It was unintentional.
We didn’t even notice until we took the pics.
So–all I need to do now is wait for the ceiling to be patched, textured, and painted.
There’s still a thin layer of insulation on everything that needs to be cleaned.
When it’s all cleaned up I can put things back together into a picture of loveliness.
I’m headed to the kitchen for some dancing.
I need to do that part of my day more often.
