part of the reason for re-hashing the cupboard was to accommodate these and hide them away behind closed doors ;)
If I had actually thought about the fact the ladders would need more room to get in and out than I allowed for it would have been a lot easier.
...but I didn't....so the upshot was I had quite a lot of extra sawing to do!!
Thank heavens for electric saws..........and also thank heavens for that special someone who is watching over me 'cos on the very last cut on the very last piece I let the saw shoot off the end and it clattered against the wall (I was using the outside patio wall top as a workhorse/bench!) and the blade bent! No damage to the wall or me.....but so lucky I had done all the sawing I needed to do :)
...must remember to buy a replacement next time I'm passing the store.
Even with an electric saw and electric screwdriver attachment my shoulder and finger joints are still paying the price today!
So what do you think? I'm really pleased with the way they turned out...nothing fancy but they do the job. ...the upright makes a handy place for the ladders and some of the stuff I put back on the new shelves won't be staying as they will be moved to the shed when that has a sort out. .....but that is a whole new organising task that I can't do till the better weather arrives!!!
.........perhaps I've gone over the top with this though...?
...colour co-ordinated brads to keep the elastic in place that stops the ironing board from rattling about on its holder too much!!! HOL
Married to the most fabulous man....the love of my life.
Lover of all things arty! But where to find the time to create and earn a living! You won't necessarily find the latest must have crafting goodies here.....I don't work in the craft industry......I'm just trying to do the best I can with what I've got!!! Hopefully it turns into something I quite like along the way. LOL
Constantly striving to improve.......constantly worrying that the "powers that be" will destroy the fishing industry and I'll be out of a job!!!
Forever grateful that I live in a beautiful part of the country.
