Have I mentioned how absolutely fantastic my hubby is??
If you haven't grasped the enormity of his fantastic-ness yet, let me show you what he made for me..........
Now can you see how great he is????
I am in looooooove with my new cabinet.
He is seriously the best!
A few years ago, (about 8 or so) my sister found a lady selling old windows on the side of the road for $10 a piece.
My sister bought her out, and then let me have 2 of them.
I have been dragging them around since then with the vision of using the windows for the doors of a cabinet,
that of course, Craig would so
begrudgingly willingly and lovingly build for me.
He patiently looked at my sketches and listens to me prattle on with my measurements....
which sound a lot like,
"Oh....about this big", while holding outstretched arms.
During his Christmas break he began building my vision for me.
He got it just about finished when his job took him away for most of the next 6 months.
He worked on it when he could, with only minimal
nagging encouragement from me.
And now it's done!
The windows did take a lot of work to prepare. They were covered with many layers of paint.
I stripped and sanded and stripped and sanded.
There was pink, yellow, green and white paint on them.
At each new layer, I couldn't help thinking of all the years this paint had been on these windows.
I kept the original hardware on to use as the cupboard handles.
I really liked how the paint on them was all chipped.
It turned out to be just what I wanted.
And it's mine.....all.mine.
Just like my Craig. :):):)
