Weekend Projects, Better Known as Cans of Worms
Have you ever started a project, quite out of the blue, spent half of the day on it and then it is just not quite right? That was how my Saturday morning went. B was working, so I decided to attempt re-organization of our entry. I bought an additional piece of furniture (since returned), moved/hid our device charging area, and thoroughly cleaned everything only to be unsatisfied with the result.
Once B got home we made a couple of more adjustments and he suggested one of those big bench hall trees. After looking at the furniture already in our room, I could not picture another large piece. Then he suggested hanging a giant hall tree on the wall. Better yet, let's make one from old scrap material in the barn!
What we are left with is a cool old weathered door, gently cleaned, varnished and affixed with several large hooks that were in various areas of the barn. B even fashioned a way to securely attach it to the wall staying true to the picture rail that is already there, and it is sturdy enough that he could hang from the door and it will not budge (not just a figure of speech, he hung from the door).
Moral of the story; a little moving of furniture, creativity, $35 and a lot of elbow grease and we have a cool piece that makes the whole room feel like brand new.
