Yesterday we went hunting for the last 3 bead board panels. Home Depot had some, but we also hit the Salvage place. They had bead board.....and we had a great idea for the top of my cutting table.
The original plan had been a table 6' x 4'. SG talked me into changing it to 5' x 6'...until yesterday. I had been going to buy 2 30" doors for the top; metal plates to screw them together, sand and paint the top. The Salvage place was too expensive, door-wise; the salesman suggested a countertop. However...a countertop the size I wanted (even mis-matched)...was going to be MORE than the cabinets were. Hmmm....SG asked about laminate, they had some.....for $15/sheet. $15 for a sheet of MDF.....and I'm back to a 6' x 4' top.
Only.....we went to Home Depot today to pick up the bead board (they were $1/sheet cheaper)....and they had a 3/4" MDF board with laminate on BOTH sides...for $35. No paint, so seams....just a lovely, slick 1 piece top. :lol: Yes, we bought it....and SG is building the shelves right now. :rofl:
I also knocked out a futon cover - 2 Queen-sized sheets and 30 minutes of sewing, and voila! A pretty, easy to remove, cover.
It was busy, but a good weekend. I'm hoping to get the loom uncovered and moved this week....the electrician is supposed to be out on Wednesday...we'll see. :lol:
