Week Three of this New Year…
I’m cleaning again, whenever things start getting shaky in my world I clean…I feel like I can work through stuff in my head (after I speak to the Lord about it) and get it out by cleaning. So as I am wiping the dust from the bookshelves I am reminded the hours that my Bloke spent on building them, sanding them, clear lacquering them (because Mrs Fussy Pants didn’t want dark wood, only light colours to brighten the house) And this photo is a little piece of the much larger bookshelf that takes up a whole wall, it has some texture left, not sanded completely smooth and a little gravelly feeling… shh don’t tell my Bloke he’ll sand it and re-do it all!
Love the color of that wood, I imagine it DOES lighten up the house! Thanks for sharing!
great for the texture challenge 🙂
and I love “walnut color wood” (which is darker) – but really found the living room was too dark with too much of it – and had to change the curtains to lighten it up… so you were spot on to go light like that@! 🙂

lovely photo. Very impressed that the bookshelf was handmade! I agree with you about the light wood too 😉
Thank you for looking, this is a full wall bookshelf, from ceiling to floor from wall to wall its never coming out, its one of three that he’s built and now he’d decided no more books till some leave the house.
