Yeah, that's what I told the hubs when I finished the toy shelves from the biggest project ever.
"Hey hon! Did ya see the shelves are done? If ya stand pretty far back and squint, it looks pretty darned good."
I'm gonna say that applies to the other side of this little project as well.
So, where were we?
I had shown you the beginnings of a built-in bench, exposed wires, and so forth.
Well, let's get to this little boy's desk nook, shall we?
'Cause it's done. Ish.
Let me tell ya a couple things about the bench side. Above the seat? Above the beadboard? It's this shiny, white, vinyl-y stuff. That's what the tag at Lowe's says: "Shiny. White. Vinyl-y: $19.99." Really.
Anywho, it's next to the beadboard at the store, just so ya know. Why did I choose that material?
It's a whiteboard. Had the Daddy-o leave a permanent little sketch for my little dudes up there.
And ya know, just when I was complaining to the hubs that my kids don't appreciate all the hard work I put in to this darn house,
I catch them in their scanties at the buttcrack o' dawn trying out their new whiteboard.
Alright my little butt munches, you're forgiven.
Now go get some clothes on before I give ya a wedgie.
But I digress.
You know what this space needs? A giant, oversized pencil.
One the kids can joust with.
That facial expression is priceless.
And I can only imagine the kind of damage McKiller here was contemplating with that big of a writing device.
"Holy cow! I could jack up the whole upstairs in a jiffy with this big a pencil!"
So, all in all, this is a pretty boss nook.
(Many thanks to my sewing divas Layne & Rachel for the tushy cushion.)
But wait! A whiteboard and a chalkboard with obscenities? Yes. Lots of fun for the kidlets.
And total overkill?
And ya know, I'd love to show you the whole entire space.
It's not because McKiller drew all over my cream carpet from Hell with a red crayon.
It's not 'cause the boys broke one of the drawers under the bed.
It's not 'cause the whole thing still needs crown molding.
It's not 'cause the room is a freaking disaster.
It's all of the above.
