As sad as I am to not be able to get any more of these awesome panels (the rustic “mistake” panels I bought at the home improvement store), I really wanted to build a bookcase with them. I did get lucky and find one more panel at the home improvement store so I could finish [...]
When I cleaned out my daughter’s room (see the Teen Room Makeover) I found her old wastebasket complete with gum and candy stuck inside of it. I bought a new one for her and decided that this one was too great to throw away. I figured I could give it a makeover and use it at [...]
