Blog Writer Recharging

Not even going to pretend this week.  This writer is out recharge his creative batteries and won’t be writing.  However, I have promised that I’d always do a post on Sunday so this week you get a picture:

Blue and White Shelf

Blue and White Shelf

Last fall Heather asked for a shelf to put her blue and while china on.  Sure I said, draw what you want and I’ll build it.  She did and I did.  We just got around to installing it yesterday.  And yes, we have a wall in our house that is that color.

Long story for a different day.

Till next week,
Andrew

    The colour is really warm Andrew and sets the blue off very nicely.

      I wasn’t sure it was going to work, but trusted my wife’s sense of color and was happily surprised with the result.

    I love the blue and white pottery. It really pops* against the orange wall. *I heard the term pops on the DIY channel.

      My wife really love blue and white. Don’t think she ever buys anything else. Things do seem to be popping these days. At my marquetry club, we’re always trying to get the grain to ‘pop.’ 😉

      Both the shelf design and the wall color are my wife’s ideas – I just did the heavy lifting (painting, cutting the wood).

    That’s a great colour. People are always so scared of vibrant colours, and in my humble opinion, it would be a much brighter world if they weren’t!

      I’ll tell the longer version some day, but the short version is that one day Heather was looking a paint colors and found this one. I was ‘less than enthusiastic” about it, but agreed to put it on one wall. After it was on, well I just loved it.

    Hi Andrew. So … you’re shelving your blog for a week. 😊 Your shelves are excellent by the way.
    I have always bought shelves from a DIY store myself. But if I possessed your level of skill I would certainly make my own. Is your wood shop in a shed in your yard ? Hope you are well and thriving. All the best to you and your recharging batteries! Kris.

      🙂 These are simple shelves. They didn’t take that much skill, just the right tools. My workshop is most in the old carport with a small inside space that use to be a storage room.
