Once in a while I like to write a post that points out just how fabulous and inspirational you bloggers out there can be by posting a few projects that “wow” me. I haven’t done it in quite some time, but I’m going to get back to those posts. Pinky swear. There’s just too much inspiration out there not to point it out.
In one of those very posts, I showed you how much I loved this project from Laura at the Corner House:
|Corner House, August 2011|
Yes, the post where I mention her project is dated August 24, 2011 (You People Amaze Me! and an Update) and I finally got around to putting it together last week (although it wasn’t for our basement). Geez, I’m really quick, aren’t I?
Only I took a different spin on her project.
When I began updating our nursery to incorporate a little more “boy” than “girl”, one of the things I did was take the “dream” sign down from above the window:
But then it felt really naked up there to me. I wanted to replace the dream sign with something else. I also knew I wanted something with texture, but what? And then I remembered Laura’s project. A ha!
So I grabbed some old, weathered wood we have sitting out by our shed. I like to keep wood out there so it gets properly exposed to the elements. I chose just two pieces to use and then cleaned them up with some bleach, soapy water and a scrub brush.
Here is my interpretation of Laura’s project:
