An Outfit and a Home Project.
July 23, 2011
I told Kai right before he started taking these pictures that I don’t like it when he photographs me on a downward
angle because then my legs look really short but he didn’t listen and look what happened – mini calves! See,
Kai, told you. I look silly.
Mom came over last night … I don’t remember why any more … because let’s face it, our house is like a
black hole. People intend to stop in for a second but end up staying and helping us put our lives back together.
We are that pathetic.
So these are a couple of the things we did:
Once a milk can:
Now a table (wellll … now a milk can with a stone on top):
And look at this fanciness. I didn’t have a place for my scarves and belts so we rigged up a little somethin’
somethin’. All you need is two towel bar holders + a towel bar – and you have a cheap way to hang accessories.
I find that this works much better than hooks because it holds more and I can still see most everything.
Originally I was planning on just buying pre-made towel bars until I saw how expensive they were! To build
your own was muct more cost effective. $3.50 for a pair of towel bar holders and another $3.50 for a 24′ towel
bar (which we sawed in half) … so that makes about $5.25 per towel bar. Win!
And Kai’s side … not quite as full. He has more clothes than this, they’re just in the ironing basket. I’m aÂ bad
wife, okay? But in my defense, he does have another whole closet full of things that don’t need to be ironed.
Alright, that’s all I got for today. I’ll be in my scrubby painting clothes all day tomorrow so no post – so
sorry. Catch ya next week!
