I looked out the window a moment ago, and yes, it is snowing again! Not the big beautiful flakes like earlier, but it is snow, none the less. And the temperature has dropped almost three degrees in the last 20 minutes. Hmmm. All I can say is this ... those of you East of here might keep your heads up. This is a weird storm, and it is apparently hitting the Northern part of the State rather hard. And remember that "Spring" is just the name of the season, not a guarantee of nice, mild weather!
What I really came back to post about is this:
What follows is one of my projects that I worked on yesterday after I was tired of the hard stuff! You've heard of "a job well done," of course. Well, we are talking about me here, so you are going to see "a job half done," instead!
Here is the story. I liked the cabinet, found in an antique store, but the colors of the fabric on the right don't go with my plans. I knew I had some upholstery fabric that was my daughter's, left at our house for years. I tossed the roll in the truck, thinking it was the right colors to go with my own stuff. When I unrolled it ... yes, I was right! It was perfect! I now give you ....
The material that was "extra" when we bought the furniture, kept in case of a needed repair. I decided that it couldn't be more perfect to go ahead and do the cabinet to match the dining room chairs as you see here.
Another shot with the flash ... it washes the color a bit, but it also gives a different perspective.
The cabinet is actually a TV/entertainment center console, but I am using it as a dry bar. I'll be mounting wine glass racks in the top, adding one or two more shelves for glasses and/or bottles. Oh, and a back so the glasses and bottles don't fall out!!
OK, back to work. I should be able to get the other side in today, barring problems. When I took the door off yesterday, it took forever to remove all the nails holding the panel in, and when I popped it loose, the door broke apart at the seams! I had to find my clamps in the craft boxes, still unpacked, then glue it and clamp it over night, But then today, it went together as slick as a whistle. I think I'm gonna like it!!
