I put the boys to work in my little "sweat shop"-he, he!
Just kidding, this was outside- in the shade. My garage did feel like a sweat shop for me the last few days with the hi temps. I'm never really tempted to drink Gatorade, but I guzzled a bottle down after I thought I was going to pass out! I need to remind myself...do not build furniture in your garage when it's a hundred degrees out! My eldest must surely know that his momma loves him!
My hubby went out of town and that means project time! :) We worked fast and furiously for three days, made a huge mess of the house and ate every meal out!
I went with other plans for his room, seeing that it was too tiny to accommodate the large furniture in the PB inspiration picture. ( I do have to say that I found every building plan for the exact same furniture on Knock Off Wood.) I also didn't want to lose the function of his dresser (badly in need of a makeover) just to have pretty bookcases to display stuff on. So, I took a different route with Ana's help and the paint is still drying. Here's a sneak peek of the color he chose.
Again, he loves blue and I think he will be pleased. I just have to get it up the stairs and it will be DONE! Nicole and I had a couple of ideas for decorations that hopefully we will get to this week. We promised some fun projects but our brother came to town with his family and we made some delicious Korean food instead. We will have to share the recipes and pictures of our cookout with you all...the food is definitely not for the weak! :) A lot of GARLIC and spices!
