Farmer’s DIY bookcases…

01 Mar

About a year ago my darling built me these bookcases out of old fence planks. He had been ripping out some old fence and saved me some “heifer board” to build these. I adore them and wanted to share!!!

He is so talented…(when he wants to be!) It’s been tough trying to get him to do house stuff when there are frozen waterers and cows to feed. (those darn farm chores!) This weekend he started working on my Mexico bathroom project (!!!) and it looks FABULOUS!! Can’t wait to share! Hope you all are having a great Tuesday…I’m off to volunteer at preschool (?!?!).

Love ya all!

      It’s the same here…except I can’t help myself…and once I start a project (“Honey, how do I turn off the power to the house?!”) he can’t sit and watch me…it’s a dirty little trick my mom taught me! 😉

    Oh I love old boards…I tend to rip them off my father-in-law’s old shed when he’s not looking ;). The bookcase looks fantastic done in them. Good man!
