something happy that holds books

me: hey husband, do you know how to build a cool little bookshelf for ambrose's room?
husband: i could try.
me: thanks, i want it to be a sky vintage-y blue on the outside and bright cherry red on the inside.
husband: ok, sure.
bookshelf
he said there were some things he learned making this that he would do differently next time, so now that i know he can do things like this (and now that he knows too) i think i will be putting in some more orders. this creativity book is starting some fun things around here. i am glad the book is getting the whole family in on the act too! what will we do next...

liko and echo and britt- THANKYOU!!

ash- he loves it! he laughed when i read your comment aloud to him :)

becky- come over here and order it in person - bring the family and we'll work something out ;)

melissa- yes- he desgined it on excell or something like that first so he could make sure he had the demensions right when he bough the wood. i really like his design - mine was pretty basic and boring- his is more fun.

melissa said...

oh cool. i love blue + red, and the construction is also very appealing. bravo, all.

lizzie said...

Excellent work. I'm impressed that he designed it in Excel. That's a talented man you have there. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Ask him to build a soccer goal for the yard. I want to see if he's got a better way to do it than mine. Oooh, and the teeter-totter is a little leaney over here. Get him to build one of them and take a couple of photos!

Cool bookshelf dude, I haven't done one of those yet.
