Brad’s Room – check

June 30, 2009

Cheap, Home 'Improvement'

Brad, your room is ready. Well, it’s not vacuumed yet but we’re pretty sure you won’t care if that doesn’t get done. Right?

The drawers from our old bed now have a home, too. Remember when they looked like this?

Back in the olden days.  Like....Sunday.

Well, they live in Brad’s room now as a ‘dresser’. I stacked them, put on a top that has non-matching fake veneer, and tacked it all together. (First with tape, then with screws after I realized I was an idiot.)

Lloyd thinks these items look photoshopped.

The bottom drawers have sweaters and junk inside, but the top ones are ready to hold Royuk property. The cat night light on top is so you won’t be scared of the dark.

    I love that. What an awesomly cool dresser. I always love the stuff you do. And alternately hate you just a little for your cleverness and creativity.
    I mean that in the nicest possible way. 😉

    But the big question is: Have you finished making my new bed out of Samith and Stephannie’s old dining room table top?

    That does indeed look great! You are the woman!! And you left a fan—awesome!!

    BTW: Brad-What cup do you use in NE for your IB? Maybe you could accidently bring that one home with you!

      Peggy -- I KNEW you would notice the fan right away!
      I guess that can be your room if you ever go to visit.
