My kids frequently let me know that I repeat
things I've already said. I'm sure that's true,
but I also know they only listen half the
time, so what can I do but repeat everything?
I'm telling you this to warn you that
there is a good possibility I'm repeating
myself to you today...but I'm not sure...so pretend
you're hearing it for the first time and humor me, okay?
I am certain I've told you all about the
wood and windows that came from a demolished
courthouse that I bought at an auction last year.
I also know I told you we used 1 of the 18 windows
as part of the new wall between our kitchen and living room.
I know for a fact I told you about using the
pallet of wood from the courthouse to remodel our
bathroom walls, because the picture of it is on my sidebar.
What I don't know is if I've showed you some
of the projects I've used the leftover wood on.
I'm pretty sure I haven't shown you the
most recent project, so I'll show you that first.
I made this little clipboard-hook-wall shelf
from the unpainted, back side of one piece of wood.
I attached on old spring clip on top, put an
antique ledger page and receipt in the middle
and attached an old door mechanism for the little shelf,
then added an antique date nail at the bottom.
It works well to hang in an entryway, where
a key ring can hang on the nail, a notepad can
go on the clip and a clock or photo can go on the shelf.
I've used the painted sides of some pieces on these two wall hooks.
The handle on this one came off of one of the windows.
Well, I hope I haven't been repeating myself again.
I'm off for a crazy long day of helping one of my sons
set up for a farmer's market and attending a graduation.
Have a great weekend!
