another ah-ha moment
My mother-in-law had suggested that I put some bookshelves in there. I thought that might be kind of visually heavy... and as much as I hate to admit it, this window lets a great cross breeze through the house in the summer.
I wanted something private (because said mother-in-law has been known to go in the garage and tap said window when the hubs and I are sleeping in on Saturdays... she's lucky she's only caught us sleeping!) but also something functional. I didn't just want to cover this up with a picture or something. It should have a purpose, ya know.
Well, since I go to flea market once a month, mostly to buy vintage jewelry, my awesome jewelry armoire is filling up fast. Ah-ha moment! I could make a pop out display board for my necklaces. I'm not a big fan of putting necklaces in the armoire anyway because they tend to get tangled. So I did a quick google search and found this beautiful tutorial which I can modify to suit my needs. I like the simple elegance of her board, but I'm gonna have to bust out the jigsaw and some MDF to make a custom piece to fit inside my window.
So I have a plan... now to get the supplies and whatnot... oh right, I need money for that, ho-hum. I get paid on Friday though, so I'm gonna do some pricing and see if I can get this project underway soon :)
