I think I have early dementia. I just can't remember anything, lately. For now, I'll chalk it up to the end of summer, back to school, and my husband. Let's face it...some how...it's always going to be his fault. No worries, he let's me think that...and among other things, THAT is why I love him!
When I was in the middle of the One Room Challenge, I promised some Ikea hack break-downs. Here is one of a few (told you, I can't remember anything).
It has a bit of a twist to it....
Here comes the twist...I hate those toe kicks, and can't figure out why Ikea uses them. Must be a Swedish thing...skulle inte du med?
Let's get rid of it...shall we? Cut a piece of 1 x 3 to length
Glue it so it is flush with the Malm frame
Sand, prime, sand, paint....sand and paint again...I did a third coat for just the top
Yesterday, I told you how Lowe's challenged me (and sponsored me) to organize something. You may remember that I cleaned my tools before I organized them. If you are wondering how I decided to tidy up the inside of my shed....here is a clue.
This might be a good time to tell you that the disorganization is what lead to my bypass pruners obsession....but aren't they clean?
Now you need to see how I got here...It all started like this.
This is not staged....wait, it gets better
You know it would look so much cleaner if we didn't keep those golf clubs....just sayin.
On the other side, you ask
Do bikes and crutches go together?
Here is the best part, until this challenge...I didn't think it was that bad, well....compared to my garage.
Starting with this wall, I added two studs
A friend of mine used to say that the stud finder would go off every time he walked by it.
A trip to Lowe's for some pegboard cut to size (thank you Lowe's man who obsesses over measurements more than I).
Install the pegboard
Go ahead....add some trim around it....it's a girl's shed!
