Hi there! I thought I’d pop in today and show and tell the next project on my agenda.
Agenda, ha, that sounds so business-like doesn’t it? Well, since writing things up on the blog isn’t really keeping me accountable, I’ve decided I needed to give my projects an agenda. And this is on the agenda next. I’ve decided to call it a ceiling art challenge and you’ll see why in a minute.
Actually, this piece I’m supposed to be working on was a project started by my hubby ET. He started on it shortly after when we moved in this little row-house cottage, and I really don’t want to tell you when that was because it is very shaming knowing we’ve been living with this unsightly hole in our upper hallway ceiling for all this time. Well, it’s about time this thing got done so I’m determined to work on it and finish it.
When we moved here, we had a pull-out ladder to get into the attic room. ET removed the ladder in the ceiling and added stairs; that was one of the pretty big projects we did ourselves, or rather ET did; I just stood by mostly praying that no concrete would fall on his head. Anyway, we were left with this major hole in the ceiling, so ET closed up the hole and had a plan to do some artwork to cover the ceiling using the leftover closure of the pull-out ladder.
Well, one thing happened and needed to be done, and then another and then a few escapes needed to be made…and so it goes, another project stuck in limbo. Since ET just does not have any time to finish it and we both agree that all the work that already went into it should not be for naught, I’ve decided to try my hand at wood carving. I haven’t worked on it yet, so these pics are the “before” for now.
He used a drill and a jigsaw to make the design so far. I’m going to try using the Dremel tool that we have sitting in the basement. Whatever project I bought it for way back when, I have never really used it.
I have a plan for it, it’s not the plan that ET had, but I figure if I’m going to finish it then I want to give it my own twist. When doing something like this, your heart has to be in it…if not, it’s just not going to work right.
As you can see, I’m going to have my work cut out for me (pardon the pun) and hopefully you’ll see me here on the blog again sometime!
Wishing you a wonderful week, whatever may be on your agenda!
