I'll spare you the picture of me butt-up and knee-deep in our local landfill but I will promise you if you ever get a chance to dig around in one -- you'll be hooked!
I was when I found this pile of heart pine wood on my very first trip. Crystal ball...I see a second trip in my very near future.
The 1x6's were clean and pretty clear of nails. I'm saving them for my next "big" project -- a powder room addition. They'll make a beautiful, free ceiling treatment for the tiny room.
The 1x12's were nasty and riddled with holes. They looked like they had been involved in a shoot-out with a nail gun in which they'd barely survived.
We call that "character" in these parts...
I needed a(nother) storage spot for fabric in the guestroom where I sew so I just ignored all the negatives and carried on -- just like the sign says.
The construction was very basic. I added a stencil, applied randomly using stain, to add a little "something, something" to the basic box look.
I have to tell you about the quilt I plan to leave folded on the trunk. It's vintage, was a $10 find, and it has only one loose seam.
Oh, and it's amazing!!!
I'll be linking up here...
