Stand Up

29 Dec





A plethora of presents and tasks.. Today was the tv mount. We bought the tv in June and it has sat on my dresser ever since….until today! We mounted it off to the side so it is not such a focus. The plan is to put the table we are building up in the corner so we can watch Jeopardy while we eat….and the stools are in the shots too that will go with the table….secondhand along with some drawers which we will use for the kitchen soon..seems like Christmas has set off some new projects!

Yeah, the cords look all wonky…think we will build a wooden cord enclosure to cover that crap up too..

      Thanks Kymber! Yeah, the shelves are sweet..when I was in ottawa I was looking for more shelf braces at ikea..sold out for 2 years. We want to go all the way around the room with the high shelves.small spaces cannot affor to waste space which is why these shelves are so great!

    ya – shelf braces are hard to come by. and we don’t even have an ikea on the island!!! you are more than welcome to the attic access idea…we will get back to it one day and frame it out nice and stuff. but that’s for later on.

    i totally agree that when you have small spaces you gotta go up!

    your friend,
