Ah this Tuesday morning is hitting me hard today. I’m totally in summer and vacation mode! I hope you all had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. I was lucky enough to have Jon on vacation from Thursday and while I wanted him to rest up he was in project mode so these last couple of days I believe I’ve been in Home Depot at least once a day.
Here are some sneak peeks into some projects that we started and fingers crossed will be finished up this coming weekend:
It all started my desire for a custom hamper. I hate wicker baskets/hampers, because they don’t really work with the look I have in our bedroom. I bought one like everyone else and it now always remains in the laundry room and sadly our dirty clothes just ends up tossed in a pile on the floor. Horrible. It’s my dirty little secret. Well I guess it’s no longer a secret.
For around $40 we picked up supplies to make a custom hamper that will fit perfectly in a nook and I can add nice trim to it and customize it!
Here is what we started with:
We ended up with this:
We just need to finish the top and get it all pretty and then I will post the full DIY steps.
That one little project lead us to pricing another project while we were there and since we went to Home Depot a million and one times this past weekend on one of our trips we actually purchased all of the wood we had priced out for this:
It’s the start of a new shed! We were going to buy one already made from Home Depot, but they were pricey. We were able to get supplies to make one ourselves for a little less than $250!
I tried to get a good before picture, but Jon started working on it when I jumped in the shower and told him to rest. I got out of the shower and walked past a window and saw that the massive bush that was next to the garage was now gone and he was working on a frame for the floor.
We still need to build the wall with the doors and the roof, but we are almost there! Again full DIY post will follow once it’s all finished up.
We did take some time off to enjoy some BBQ’s and even ended up at the beach one day!
Plus when the heat got to be a little too much for me I enjoyed the seating area in my office and curled up with Room (Thanks for all of the book recommendations. I loved it and already finished it.)
We also had a little excitement this weekend when we found a baby bird with an injured wing:
Isn’t he or she cute? All the baby does all day is chirp, chirp, chirp. We’ve been trying to feed it, give it water and keep it safe while it’s wing gets better.
What were you up to all weekend? Did any projects get tackled? Did you go away on vaca? Where you beach bound? Details please.
