We have been working on wrapping up several loose ends around the house. None of which are earth shattering, but nonetheless I was happy to see them get done. If you follow me on Instagram (@amymccarter) you may have seen some of these pics already.
D found two sets of doors salvaged out of an old country club with an “M” sketched in the glass. This was handy, as our last name begins with “M”. We painted both sets black.
One set is in our bedroom, the other finally got hung in the office.
We have a light post off the old Kansas Avenue bridge in Topeka. The pole has been set for a while, and D installed the globe over the weekend. This thing lights up the entire front yard!
We have two decks off the back of the house, but just one is covered.
Sorry, the only pic I could find of it is when it was under construction. But you get the idea. The interior, we hadn’t worried about because it was just too blasted hot to work on. But now that it’s nicer out, D and his heterosexual life partner, Nate (on the right) started adding the tin.
And finally, the thing I am the very most excited about…. our dining room table! It’s in the works! We’ve just had a gaping hole in the dining room where a table should be. D has started on it, and so far, it is looking awesome.
We stole the legs off a table we bought at an antique store for $20, and painted them black. The tabletop itself is made from applewood planks taken out of the old wine box cars.
We found them on Craigslist and bought them all. We figure we’re at about $12 per plank, and we used three for the table. So we’re only into it for about $56. I can’t wait for the finished product!
