Happy Weekend ya'll! Finally!
I say finally because finally Mr. Ruffles
has some extra time to get my finished
projects up in the house..
I'm so excited to show you!!
First is a fireplace mantal I found off
of Craigslist, for only.... $50!
I drove about 45 miles to go get it, once
I got there we tried to fit it inside the back
of my SUV.. but, it wouldn't fit.
Not to worry, I have rope and bungy cords!
I was bound and determined to get this sucker home.
We ended up tying it to the top of my truck:
I had to drive all the way home
on one of the busiest streets in the area
going only about 30 - 35 mph.
(yep, I recieved several honkers
and a coupe middle fingers too!
Didn't care... I was getting it home!)
Here it is, off of the top of my truck
and in the garage ready for me to start:
All sanded down:
And, now.. finally finished and in my home:
I also wanted to share with you
a couple of pictures of the chandy
It's finally hung up in the dining room:
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
For me, it's back to the garage now.
We're cleaning it.. oh fun! NOT!
