winter break project

my little sweetie is on school break this week, so i've had to work in our apartment. i've been wanting to try a floating shelf in our itty-bitty living room and here are the results...


partially completed project. since making a trip to the store with frida is more work than i had in mind- i designed this box based around the materials i had in the shop.


close up of the cabinet- i pre-drilled 3/8" holes so i could cover the screws with pegs.


the floating shelf! the drawer was left in our apartment when we moved in and i've been saving it for.... well i wasn't sure what. now it can house a variety of STUFF (we have a lot...).



the idea is  that we'll keep expanding this little wall unit with more self existing cabinets.  we have a lot more stuff that needs a home!

Hi Liz,

Kate just gave me the update on you guys and I wanted to check out your site. Your shop looks absolutely adorable and your pieces are so inspiring! I look forward to seeing you guys when we are out there in August. I can't believe your baby girl is in Kindergarten! Mine is starting middle school next year! Can you believe it?

I am glad to hear you guys are doing so well. Your life sounds perfect.
