Happy Canada day, everyone! It might not be the nicest day out there, but we are pretty frigging lucky to live where we do, not to mention a blog post on Canada Day! Grab a cold one and nestle in. I haven’t posted in awhile but I’ve been busy as balls! My daughter has recently been relocated (forced) into her new room because she has a little brother moving in. We are patiently waiting for him arrive (he is due in 6 days!). It has been forever since I built anything for our house, so instead of saving a shit load of money and buying things from Ikea, I decided I’d spend triple the amount of money and build everything for my daughter’s bedroom. It’s more special anyway in my opinion. I built and painted her a new bed, some floating shelves and a dresser. Her new room turned out pretty frigging cute if you are asking me! Maybe even magazine worthy if I started my own magazine (do people still buy magazines?). Lets just dive right into the build. We all know you’re here for my photography skills…
Hold on tight
Next, I took it apart and brought it up to Everly’s new big girl room and she went right to sleep! She has slept in it every night without any troubles (knock on wood), but who wouldn’t want to snuggle in to this cute room? I also built and installed the floating shelves. If you want to see a lot of holes in a wall come over and look behind these. It is not pretty.
Okay, one down, one to go. This one is the dresser. I had zero plans for this (except for one Pintrest picture my wife sent me) once again. I didn’t calculate how much wood I needed. I just went to the depot and thought to myself “This should be enough”. It wasn’t, but I was pretty close considering I wasn’t sure how it was going to look.
One down, one to go. This is Everly’s dresser.
I’m pretty happy with how this turned out! I hate installing drawer slides, though. Son of a bitch I get frustrated. There is something to be said about buying the cheap ones. Come to think of it, it could be the installer. Regardless, they can screw right off. Anyway, I have lots of work ahead of me this summer. I’m going to be a mason apprentice in a week or two for KeyStone Masonry so I’m looking forward to learning lots about that trade. I also have a bunch of orders to fill and a baby on the way. It should be a low key summer. Have an awesome day and summer everyone!
Another great build – and an even better story. Everly must be thrilled with her newly decorated room. Can’t wait for news in the next few days.
Happy Canada Day.
