It's a perfect Fall day here. We went for a drive and picnic up in the mountains. It was a prefect, fun day. Drew and I had so much fun practicing our photo skills. I will share some, probably in the next couple days. I have SO many I need to edit!
For awhile now, my feet have been really hurting me. I just figured it was because I've been on them too much lately. Well, it's Plantar Fasciitis. It's extremely painful and the only cure is time, rest and supportive shoes. All of these things are problems. Rest?? Don't my feet know I have a STAIR issue I need resolved?!?! And, supportive shoes. To me, supportive shoes = granny shoes. I'm guilty of wearing flip flops or being barefoot as much as possible.
That's the way I roll.
Well, not anymore.
So, the past couple days I've been trying to rest my feet. That means, I haven't been working on the stairs. And it's been driving me nuts.
So, the other night, I got a wild hair to make one of those cute wooden boxes to fill with fun, pretty stuff to put as the centerpiece on the dining room table.
Shanty 2 Chic did all the hard stuff for us. I took all those measurements to Home Depot and had them do all the cuts for me. When I got home, I just glued & nailed the whole thing together. Then, I lightly painted it with leftover milk paint. I did add the felt pads to the bottom so it wouldn't scratch my table if I ended up not having a runner on it.
Seriously, this took less than an hour, including the painting.
I filled it with candles, little pumpkins & gourds, fake pears, leaves & berries. I absolutely love the blue and orange together. My FAVORITE color combo of all time. Placed the box on a paper under burlap runner.
I have the knobs for the ends, just haven't added them yet. I'm also thinking of stenciling it to look like an old crate.
I have the same color leaves draping around the dining room light. I'm loving the combo.
Well, I'm off to edit pictures and work on my epic stair project.
Enjoy your weekend loves!
