We have a three car garage that only has room in it for one car (don't ask)... and that one space is reserved for me. But, last weekend Mr. Fanatic had some time after unpacking from his adventurous trip to Southern California to work on a project. In order to do this long awaited project, my car has been banished to the driveway, at least for awhile because.....
We finally started on our daughter's bookcases!!!
Those of you who visit regularly know that this project keeps getting pushed back due to other things... namely moving our 18 year old daughter to SoCal, which was a huge project in itself! We purchased the bookcases several months back from someone who listed them on Craigslist. We felt it was easier to customize them by raising the base, adding a soffit and crown to the top and painting them, rather than building them from scratch. The inset doors are solid 5 piece mitered raised panel doors with applied molding. (only a cabinet person will appreciate that detail). These doors alone would cost more than what we paid for the two bookcases. Mr Fanatic is almost finished customizing them and then I can begin painting .
Graduation is in less than two weeks and we have guests coming in, so the bookcases will probably be finished mid-June..
Just had to throw in one more photo of my car.... I LOVE this car and say that every time I get into it or walk past it. This is soooo weird as I've never been a car person, but my car is so fun to drive and it gets 30MPG (plus there's no note on it!). Ya can't beat that!
Anyone else have or had a car that you absolutely loved???
