My wife, Patty is the “Professional Crafter” in our house, whereas I need to settle for the title of “Crafty Professional.” She built, painted and installed these bookshelves in Isla’s room. My assistance was minimal since I was busy tracking down the perfect Theremin sound for an upcoming Groundhog Day post.
For a much better post about the shelves themselves (including photos,) check out Patty’s blog. It’s OK, I don’t mind. I figure you probably read other blogs anyway. She’s got a whole bunch of posts about her various projects, most of which involve a hot glue gun, some sparkly ribbon, and a DeWalt DW718 12″ Double-Bevel Sliding Compound Miter Saw (you know, for the Li’l Princess House.)
I, of course, was a boatload of help.
I think I need a shave
Isla loves the new shelving with easy access to her books, while I wake up in a cold sweat worrying that she is going to climb the hell out of them.
And no, I have no idea why she’s wearing her jacket in a 70 degree house. It’s a thing she has.
