In the pink

You know it's hot when you step out of the workshop and it actually feels cool outside. That's what I braved to put this shelf together. I really wanted to see it finished so I put up with the sweltering heat. I made this shelf using 1 x 4's and an 18" x 22" old frame, painted it Pepto Bismol pink, then dry-brushed it with white. Yep, I am a woman who knows how to use power tools. Move over, Norm!

Teresa, I recevied your email about the blog button, but I'm not sure how to do that. A friend created my button for me because I too could't figure it out. You might try googling it for instructions.
