reuse

Upcycled workspace
antique fridge door that was under the floor
Upcycled workspace

one of the goals was to reuse everything. that old fridge door was under the floor and it makes the perfect memo board for the desk area. usually everything is thrifted around here, but i had to break down and buy something matchymatch. these lights were under $15 at ikea. i just love them.

the floor was painted with minwax polyshades. the first coat was bombay mahogany and the second coat was their classic black. the bottom boards on the wall were missing so yesterday i cut a scrap of polygal down and made it a sliver of lightwall.

i ran out of time this weekend to tackle the toolshed area. i need to pull everything out, insulate and the clad its walls. i think that i have enough leftover materials to do that.

during this process, my cordless drill lost its battery juice. i had no idea that they had such a short life. did you? i bought that drill only six years ago and didn't use it all of the time. opting for a corded drill this time, i think my handygirl self grew by six inches.

Oh, how I wish I were there to wander and run my hands over your new treasure.
