You may have been wondering who andy is, since I share the name of this most wonderful blog. It's me, the other half of the better half, Meg and the bread winner of our little kingdom.
Ok, so that's not what I look like now, but you've all seen me hanging around the blog, so I thought I'd show a new side(old) side of me.
I have to break from my line of thought and say that I love my Meg a ton. That's another way of saying that I don't know who, what, where, and when I'd be without her! Ok, that's enough of the gushiness.
When I was talking to Meagan about what I should post, I caught a glimpse of how cool she thinks I am, cause she said I could blog about how I fold hand towels. How I fold? I mean, at least I should blog about something that involves a power tool. But I guess since I can be a bit of a tool, I could blog about anything and I'd have that part covered. No, seriously, I'd love to blog about really cool, amazing ideas, but you'll have to just put up with whatever comes into my mind at the time, which I must say can be random at times. Very random. For instance, I just wrote a whole two sentences about a grammatical error I just heard in a U2 song. For your benefit I deleted it, because I was SO random.
Ok, what to expect soon. I'm getting ideas for a craft table that Meg would like me to build.
Best place to start to get ideas- the high end stuff - Pottery Barn Kids:
Pretty basic, I'm not going for the drawers (above my skill level for now), though I spotted one cool feature:
A paper roll - Now that, my friends, is something I can do! Imagine how nice it would be to just pull out a fresh roll for any craft time - catches glue, glitter, enthusiastic marker skills, and could easily be the canvas for a painting session.
Which brings me to my next idea for the table top:
I envision a space under the paper area that would be a chalk board - simply for a 13 buck quart of paint! Think sidewalk chalk creativity all winter long...
Ok, at least it's cheaper than the diy dry erase version (30 bucks):
Ok, so for any more ideas I just did a craft table google search and here is the final idea:
P'kolino - chalk table(see - it was a good idea!) with storage.
That's the kind of storage option I can swing!
Easier than drawers, but a couple of low organizers could cordon off markers,
crayons, play doh, and paint equipment.
Most likely, when i post the results, it will be a table made of 2x4's and a sheet of plywood - but hey, you've got to admit you enjoyed looking at these cool ideas!
