Before and After
Drawing the design with measurements for a mission style look
Built the frame with shelves
The walnut we used was from my Grandpa's Farm
Todd planed it into lumber. A Kreg Jig was used for the joints
|Decorating for Halloween can be simple.|
If your family is busy it can be hard to find time to do the full display. The first place I start is the fireplace mantel. I feel as though if my mantel is decorated for the season then my domestic responsibility to the holiday has been provided.
|I added some burlap and ribbon to my planters|
This diy wooden box can be made simple or advanced carpentry if you desire. We used no nails and wood glue to hold the frame together. For wood we chose some scrapes from other projects. You could also use walnut, maple, oak, ect...For more advanced carpentry you could dovetail or kraig jig your corners.
|Here we are gluing the corners together. You will need clamps to hold it securely overnight. |
|Dimensions were 5ft long, 3inches long, and 9inches wide.|
which still gave room to set plates on the table without removing the box.
|The story of the wooden box...One morning our sweet neighbor was walking home with a large piece of wood that she salvaged from her journey. We asked her as she passed if she would like help carrying the lumber home...and she told us about a box she would love to have for her table. We helped her build the box and she sanded, finished, and decorated the centerpiece. So when seasons change she will send me a photo and I will share it with busy days!|
You can hike on the Island and tour the original settlement
|If you look close you can see the shadow of a Cowboy|
|If you enjoy Kayaking this would be a destination to explore|
|Many unique caves and rocks to climb. Beautiful beaches and waterfalls where the kids can play. The water is so clear and almost turquoise in color.|
|Our children have already asked if next year we can go back to the Pictured Rocks.|
