And Then I Sigh

And why do I sigh? Well, maybe it's a lack of sleep. Maybe I struck my head on something and as a result no longer think clearly.

I bought 'Edwardian Era Miniatures In 1:12 Scale' by Jane Harlop. This is a great book for visual learners like myself. So, I thought, why not make your own 4 drawer dresser from scratch?  Hey, why not make 2 dressers, and then decide to make them built in with a desk in between. Then make faux marble tops and line each drawer and add nice trim work?  

I choose to blame watching The Walking Dead for my crazy ideas. I get lost in the show and forget that I am working away.  10pm rolls around and I'm covered in paint and glue. Sometimes a little blood when I zone out watching Rick while using my scaple to carve away at wood.  My fingers are a manicurists nightmare right now!

I will post pictures of my idea of a fun Sunday night soon. The dressers do look really good. And I finsihed all the kitchen work. Just waiting for my ebay mixer to arrive to take the final pictures!

  1. Delighted to have found your blog! Love your work and your sense of humour, look forward to pics of the dressers, and hope you still have all of your fingers intact - still if you should cut off a tip or two I'm sure you have some super adhesive glue to hand ;)

  2. Hi Kat! You are not alone up at midnight and into the wee hours! :))
    I am looking forward to seeing the results of your Late Night Building Projects and judging from what I've already had an opportunity to see, I know that it will be GOOD! :D

    1. Thank you! It's good to know I'm not the only gluey one when most people are sleeping
