The Brittlebush file cabinet is going to school...

...home school, that is for Miss Lucy. The top drawer is for all her Read-Aloud's. Under the pencil tray is special hiding place for her treasures.

Initially, the cabinet looked like this:

It was a sturdy piece that I got from Ken. Interior was white oak.

It had minor distressing which would give it good character.

Move-able dividers and a secret space.

The drawers rolled out easy.

Now it is Sherwin William's Brittlebush-almost the color of a No#2 pencil.

Added castors for the final touch.

Have a good school year, Miss Lucy!


I may add something else tonight, if I finish it.  Making 150 meatballs this afternoon. Secret recipe, maybe I'll share it.


PS  It is later and I made 250 meatballs for a party on Saturday. I already gave 20 to my carpenter for helping me put a lower shelf on the boat table [very tricky with only two hands].  And then I had some for supper.....

So there are more than I originally planned.  I need my grass cut and that could be the payoff.  May I say more people request my meatballs than any other food I create.  Melt in your mouth good.


Someone I spoke with the other day was talking about raising chickens.  I seriously don't talk to that many people, but I cannot remember who.  But they said they would have to build a coop first, and I said I would find the chickens.  Well, here they are.  This was a listing on Craigslist today. [?]
