|The Wall that Became the Table||January 14th, 2015|
Here we are 14 days into 2015 and it’s surreal. I swear I blogged just the other day. It feels like New Years was just yesterday and that Colin just left. Time just seems to be going by so fast lately.
While Colin was here we took down a half wall and moved part of another wall over so that we could put up a railing for the basement stairs. We also disconnected the kitchenette sink and water lines because it wasn’t being used. As the pipe was being cut, it snapped where it shouldn’t have so we had to turn the water off for the whole house as we went back to Home Depot to get a new pipe. We got rid of the half wall because it didn’t make much sense, there was wasted space and when we took down the wall behind the stairs that was previously inaccessible, we found a suitcase, a foam mattress, and just a bunch of scrap materials.
Right now the railing is only temporary since we haven’t finished the wall yet and probably won’t until we figure out what we’re doing with the basement, also since with the pipe breaking, we forgot to measure what dimensions we needed for the railing.
Since only part of the wall was put back up, there was a lot of left over wood. I salvaged what I could.
I then decided to make a table to use for things like craft projects, building models, etc.
I’m currently building a Master Chief model that Kris got me and after that I will be putting together a Back to the Future Lego Delorean that her mom got me for Christmas. For some reason everyone was surprised that I was able to build a table out of the spare wood, so now we’re coming up with plans for other furniture that can be built, I think for the next thing I build is going to be a table for behind the fireplace in the den that can house the controllers, and remotes for the television and the other electronics. I need to plan how I want to do it and come up with a plan then go buy the wood, but I won’t be starting on that until I finish some other things around the house.
