Well, I don't really know what has gotten into him, but later that evening, after Awesome Husband was home from work, we were talking about various projects around the house, I mentioned that I wanted to get some tomatoes and basil planted in one of the garden boxes that we have out in our backyard. Well, the next morning he went out there and dug up the soil in that box and got it ready to plant in and we went off to the home improvement store and purchased the plants that we needed. They are now planted and growing and looking good so far. I hope you will later be seeing some recipes with the produce from that garden box! You got to love a man who does something to make one of your wants come true so quickly!
The fun didn't stop there! This man of mine then went into my craft room and finished putting up all of the moldings, miter cuts and all, and even along the top of my sewing desk! All there is left to do is the caulking and paint touch-ups. It is looking so wonderful! Meanwhile I was doing some fancy cooking for him that I will blog about on another day, and the not so fancy laundry. But, today I will show you how the craft room is coming along at this stage of the game!
A few years ago, I found some fabric boxes that are 13 x 13 inches on clearance at Target and they fit on my long shelf just right! I was able to get a super good deal on them at the time, so keep your eyes open for those clearance sales and weekly ads. I only had 3 and I needed 6 in all, so I ordered these from Amazon. But, there are a number of options available. My husband is going to add another long shelf below the original one for me and I will store my fabric boxes on that shelf when it is finished, saving the top shelf for less used items.
All in all, it was a pretty productive weekend that left us feeling satisfied with life around here! How about you? What projects are you working on? I would love to hear about them. Of course, I may end up giving my husband something else to do for me if I like them too much, ha ha!
Thanks for stopping by!
