Finally Cutting Stuff

I’ve been struggling with this

for months.  I needed the storage above my toilet but this wire contraption was not cutting it any more.  You know what was cutting it?

This guy.  I got it at Christmas from my parents and only last week got around to setting it up

and cutting stuff.

While I was at Lowe’s last week getting the polyurethane I picked up some brackets and a board.  I had measured the space above my toilet and I knew I wanted the shelves to be two feet long and I knew that I couldn’t fit a very long board in my Jeep.  So after wandering around the lumber section of Lowe’s I found a board that was 4 feet long and 8 inches wide.  Perfect.

I measured for the top shelf and then just used my level to line up the brackets for the second shelf.

And then I put all my crap back on it.  I hated how stuff fell through those wire shelves an nothing sat level and things fell over all the time.  I got so tired of straightening it that I just didn’t.

I’m thinking these guys need some Jacobean stain on them to tie them into my dark wood floors in here but that’ll have to wait for this weekend.

  1. I love your miter saw which looks just like mine. It’s made a huge difference for me in just what project I was willing to get involved in. Hope you have fun with it. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
