One thing about being sick in bed, once you can stay awake, you can catch up on things. I've read the entire Internet in the last 6 days. No, really.
I do feel a bit better today, if only my head belonged to someone else and my bones didn't hurt. But, the cough is much better! Things are looking up.
In spending lots of time with my computer and trying to get some order to my photos, I realized I never shared this project. Remember when we tore out the massive adobe hearth that ate the living room?
What was I thinking?
Love these guys!
The wall after plastering.
And finally this. Wow, that tree is bright!
We needed something to store the media center computer, DVDs, game stuff but it needed to be narrow. I tried a couple of different options but in the end and old wall cabinet fit the bill. So, we built a box for it to sit on and I painted in a nice gray/green. I experimented with a copper look door.
Finally, chalkboard paint makes it less obtrusive and adds some fun.
So, that's it. Except the top still isn't finished so I'm using a piece of burlap until I figure that out.
