Sometimes Projects Come Easy

I'm a bit under the weather.  It feels like a cold or flu coming on, so I'm popping Ziacam and I'm plastered to the recliner right now.  I really should be in bed, and will be soon, but I wanted to quickly share a little project that was fast, easy and turned out right the first time.

In my world that rarely happens.  I often spend two or three times the amount of time I think a project will'd think I'd get better at gauging my time...but no, not me.  Ever the optimist, I think I can whip out a project in no time.  Then things go wrong, I don't like how it turned out, and life happens.

Happily, once in a while a project comes along that falls into place just the way I want it to.  In this case, I thought it would take longer.  I figured I'd just sand this little shelf a bit first, to see if I liked it, with the thought that I'd end up painting it, another color and maybe embellishing it somehow.

But somehow, I sanded in all the right places, just enough, but not too much, and low and behold, the simplicity of it was perfect.  The first time.  Imagine that.  I really like this little shelf.  It needs a good home, with just the right something placed on it.  It will be in my Etsy store later this week if you want to adopt it...cause I know there's someone out there who will love it too.

I'm going to try to get some rest now.  Oh...tomorrow the chickens are coming home to roost...Lord willing and the creek don't rise ;)
