The Bed is Lifted!
We got a good start yesterday morning. Hubby bought the big chunks of wood, we marked them, and he got busy with his drill and some chisels.
See how the bed leg fits right into the recess he made? Perfect fit. No wobbles! This assures the legs will not slide off the supports.
We put purchased risers on the foot of the bed. BOOM! I have a new dust ruffle (bed skirt) ordered to fit the new height (and new curtains for the room, too). This 'lift' gives me more than 33 cubic feet of storage space (yes, I calculated this - always an engineer). Very HAPPY! That's like a new closet!
I also cleaned out two more drawers for more stuff to live. Where there's a will, there's way!
After we finished this project, we hung a curtain rod in my sewing room. New curtains coming to this room, too...
Today I'll get the bed made and try to get this room put back together. I'm SO ready to SEW again. I still have piles of things everywhere...dining room table, foyer table, counter tops.... I hope all this mess is gone today!
If I don't do anything else in the sewing realm...I at least want to prepare some hand sewing to work on. The last several nights I haven't had anything at the ready. I like my TV time to be productive.
Speaking of TV, I cancelled our trial month of HULU. We finished watching both The Handmaid's Tail and 11.22.63 in record time. I highly recommend both shows. I had already read The Handmaid's Tale book, but not 11.22.63. There were several differences between The Handmaid's Tale book and the show, but they ended the same way. I'm sure I drove Hubby crazy saying, "That wasn't in the book!) during every episode. He wasn't expecting to enjoy The Handmaid's Tale - it was not something he would have ever chosen to watch, but he liked it as much as I did.
Last night we started watching Land Girls on Netflix. So far, so good.
Better get to work! Have a fun day!
