Brownies and Boards for Memorandum Monday

The oldest came home from her second day of work at her first job and said wow, it's like the best perfume ever. The house smells like new wood and baking brownies. THE MAN had been slaving away all day on the rustic cupboard we're making for the laundry room. He even found a very old board that came with the house and planed it down for the front. Kinda fits the whole repurposed nature of the piece!

A friend made the oak top earlier and it's waiting in the wings to be attached to the bottom. Tom made it from a reclaimed bunk bed! Eeek! Awesomeness! THE MAN spent most of last week gently sanding and clear coating it.

After we build a back for the bottom part that hides the ugly wall & pipes, I'll be painting the whole thing with some white semi gloss. It's possible it will even be this week, but who knows. It seems next to impossible to get work done on the house during the week.

Hoarding a couple of vintage items I might be able to use in the room too. Those fancy book ends might be a shelf, could use a knob as a towl holder, and who knows on those little feet! It's all still a work in progress!

I feel good heading off on a Monday though with what we got accomplished!

Blogged in part for Memorandom Monday, which is Sian's brainchild over at From High in the Sky.


  1. It's going to be a fine looking piece..and one with lots of stories attached too. Perfect!

    Wishing you all the best with your week. I think a shelf with those book ends sounds excellent.

  2. Oh wow! That's going to be awesome! Can't wait to see it all finished and that beautiful painting on the wall!


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
