Please, please for the love of all that is holy and decent,
remind me to take an extended trip to Lowe's, before the hubs goes on a long business trip.
See, I'd compare my trips to Lowe's with my children the equivalent of having my gums scraped--
and so last week, I had nothing to do. Nada. I was ree-hee-heally bored--
my house was spotless. It was totally lame.
And so! This week, I've got sumfin' fun up my sleeve.
Allow me to explain what I'm buildin', here. This, is DVD shelving. See, we have a DVD problem around these parts.
All we own sit in crate after crate, all over the house.
It's kind of ridiculous.
And I've had it in my head to create my own shelving, see. But not just any shelving. . . oh-ho, no.
I'll be finishing the staining and shellacking of my new DVD shelving today:
I know-- it's just a work of art, isn't it? The attention to details-- the intricate work. . .
Just wait, okay? I'm so excited I'm doing the potty dance. See, this DVD shelf, or a "MovieCase", if you will, is going to have a faux front.
Now I've been thinking on this for a long time. Perhaps a giant Domino? Something cool and game related? A gigantic Monopoly Board??
Nothing quite caught my attention.
Oh heck, I'm just gonna tell you.
No, I can't.
I have to play this cool-- I have to wait until it's all done. I have to be spiffy, and all surprise-y.
Let's just say, that at the top of my list of ideas, was a copycat of the Daddy-o's Telephone Booth.
Can you imagine?? You open it up, and inside is shelving for all your movies??
It got vetoed by the hubs for it's red color. It doesn't "go" with the rest of the space. Whatevs.
So wish me luck-- it's gonna take me a while to plan and execute this. But it'll be worth it.
