Hello my friends, the junk wood wall in the she shed is finally finished and now the fun has begun!!
I lined the top of the wall with some of my watering can collection. Alot of them would not fit, but these small ones worked nicely.
Originally I wanted to make this junk wood wall all by myself. Simply to say that I could. :) Alas, hubby would not let me use the table saw that we used for ripping the wood. Many pieces had to be ripped to line up with other wood.
Just an old piece of chippy plywood scored at my cousin, Betty's home being ripped. Did I mention that I kept calling it stripped instead of ripped. Hubby corrected me plenty. lol! What can I say? some girls just want to 'strip' more than they want to 'rip'!
Marking a line to be cut.
He did let me use the chop saw. Something about using a power tool that is exhilarating! :)
Safety first! Always wear eye goggles.
I am not the worlds greatest hammer lady, but I gave it my
Even if it did put me in some, 'not so pretty' predicaments! (wink)
I might mention that hubby took a video of me hammering and it's quite comical. I think I missed more times than I hit.
This wall turned out to be everything I had dreamed it would be.
It's fun adding bits and bobs here and there. I had the old hinge and we recently dug up the rusty saw blade while planting a bush. It had to be added to the wall!
When we were more than half way done I remembered I had this old pegboard we made a few years ago. It had hung on the wall in our family room. We took it down when we bought our entertainment center. If I had remembered earlier I would have added it directly into the wall. Not wanting to tear any wood down I opted to hang it on top.
I was staining the inside walls on Friday. Look who flew in to say, 'hi'. Looks like I'm not the only one loving my new she shed! Now to finish staining the other half.
My work never ends!
