A Project

This wall used to have a window.  When we added our Florida room this window got drywalled.  I have been wanting to remove the drywall and put shelving in.  It was only a thought until the folks at Wood You Like to Craft featured shelves and wanted links. 

Naturally it was about midnight last night when I decided to remove the drywall.

After dropping the kids off at school (and having a nice little chat with Anthony's teacher) I went to Lowe's for supplies.  You know that you go to Lowe's too often when you are greeted by name and asked what project you are doing! 

I brought my wood home, measured my opening and built a simple box.

Thankfully the box fit into the opening.  I didn't do a dry fit which could have been a problem if I hadn't measured correctly.

I put trim around it and painted everything.

I am happy with the results and wonder why it took me so long to tackle the project.

What do you think?


  1. I'm shaking my head with amazement. You inspire me.

  2. I think it looks great! I'd love for you to come to my house and finish some projects... ;0) I love your blog (I'm a lurker with no blog myself). I'm a foster and adoptive and bio parent myself and "get" how you think. Bravo!
