this is not a door

I have been working on my office nook .  I already added cabinets top and bottom, but needed the top surface for the desk.  I wanted it to be wood but the nook is not very deep and I would have to get a custom fit piece for the area.  I didn’t want to spend too much on it, so I decided to take a different approach.  I bought a door, trim and stain.  The result: a  fabulous desk top for less than $30.

adding colors

 

gardening

I have been doing a lot of planting around the house. Everything looked so green that I thought it was about time to add some color, so I  did.  There is still a lot to go, but I am happy to see the flowers I planted a week ago blooming so beautifully.
