It wasn't pretty.
I'm trying to make things pretty.
Never mind about the pile of mail to be sorted and the laundry that needs to be folded. It will be pretty someday.
After the dresser makeover I did, I had some wood left over. And this wood was nice too, too nice to let it sit and do nothing. It called to me, asking for a project. And so, I delivered.
I started by making a box (sort of) from the wood. The hubster put it together and sanded it for me.
I had him drill holes to fit 5/16 dowels. This was a bit of a production because my husband can be a bit of a prima donna. THAT'S RIGHT BUSTER, I CALLED YOU OUT.
Once that was done, I put some ribbon in to make sure my measurements were right. I used the widest spool I had... this was not the widest ribbon I had, I just needed to measure the width of the spool itself.
Then I painted.
Would you believe I'm this sassy to my husband on a GOOD day? He loves it. :)
