I barely got the coffee cup to my lips this morning before I was pleading with Ben to please help me carry the cabinet over to the house from next door (where it was painted). The off gasses are still pretty potent, but I really don’t care. I immediately cleaned the glass sides, doors and shelves, and started curating. I could not possibly be more pleased with how this turned out. I’m slightly annoyed by the cord sticking out from the side of this piece, but Ben claims to have the solution, so I’ll be patient. Best part? There’s still room for more inside. I’ll have to be careful about how I jam things in there from here on out, but it’s do-able. This is officially my new favorite item in the house. AND, it’ll keep curious little kid hands off my collection. Win!
A couple of teens from our branch in Hoquiam made a dress by upcycling an old Harry Potter book. You can see their progress, starting with a dress form and working through the process to make a beautiful final product! How beautiful!
