Until mid-week it had been very hot and humid and these smaller projects were so much more appealing than prepping bathroom walls for painting, sanding the porch railing and repainting, or painting the trim around the new garage door.
I couldn't pass up these pine boxes with the duck decoy add ons at a woodworkers retirement sale recently. I thought they might work for storing video games or dvd's in the TV area of our basement guest suite. I don't want things too themed but my plans are for a Canadian cottage feel to the space. They were only $3 each. At first I was going to stain the solid pine boxes but ended up painting them with leftover paint in black and blue.
These are the chunky pine benches that I shared here the other day, from the same sale.
Now that I see the photos I am thinking I will tone down the red and green wings on the ducks with a bit of craft paint. Then, decide if I will keep them or sell them. Our oldest son had a dairy show on Thursday and Friday and we are planning on relaxing this weekend. What are you doing this weekend?
