I'd like you to know, that it's the one year anniversary of my spice shelf creation. 'Mmm hmm.
I celebrated with chocolate today. Not that I do that every other day. 'Cause I don't, okay?
Anywho, in honor of this, I decided to put a plan into action--
I've toyed with the idea of having my very own, built-in, apothecary cabinet.
It'd be like my spice shelves, 'cept taller. And thinner. Maybe the spice shelves should be jealous.
Now, if you've been with me a while, this may confuse you. The apothecary cabinet I did for Crafting with the Stars, as seen here:
is actually in the parental unit's house. And I need my own. Don't I?
And this spot in my bathroom, as seen here:
where my robes used to hang is thee perfect spot. Let's do this. Let's get cuttin'.
Borrowed a sawzall from the Daddy-o--
I'm telling you, using those things makes you feel like Ahnuld, with a machine gun. You're just mowing people down by the dozens. It's totally awesome.
People, don't take pictures of yourself like this. I had no idea I had muffin butt. You did?? Well why didn't you say anything? Geez.
Cross my heart, and hope to die-- I checked this wall with the stud sensor a dozen times. It's a 17 inch wall. So imagine my shock when I discovered studs placed 8 INCHES APART, HELLO.
This is where I said things like,
"Oh. . . ssssnnaap." And, "Oh. . . .doodoo." Because, even though I believe that a well-timed swear is reasonable and oftimes hilarious,
the parental units have told me otherwise and told me to clean up my language.
So. . ..
"Oh, Poo. There's another stud in this wall."
But that didn't stop me.
There's no reasonably reasonable reason why there's a stud there, so I removed it. With my Ahnuld machine gun.
And I started making my "box" to put inside that hole I just cut out. I wanted to make it just like the spice shelves ones. I wanted to be like the Daddy-o.
Grooved some slots in some 1x4 with "Severus" like so:
and then the shelves just slide inside for a "perfect" (huge air quotes) fit.
Wanna see the box? I made it all out of scraps. Never headed to Lowes for nothin'.
And ya know, I think it looks just fine like this.
I'm just gonna leave it. We're good, here.
Alright fine-nuh. Ya know, I joke about how many coats of paint 'n all, but this really did take one meeeeelion coats.
Yay! It's done! Now I can display all our bathroom things. Like our Tucks! And "Nads" hair removal cream! And Tinactin! And feminine products and such!
I kidd. I don't use "Nads".
We are done, here.
