Sometimes I like to pretend I can sew and I’ll pull out my sewing machine and go to town. My efforts usually turn out like I plan. It’s crazy. I guess I’m a pretty good pretender. Well, about a month ago I decided to pretend I could use power tools like saws and nail guns. Guess what?! It pretty much turned out like I planned! I sawed and nail gunned and made myself a faux board and batten hallway for myself. I found the awesome idea on the House of Smith’s and ran with it. Check it out. Shelley answers all the questions you could have about this kind of project. What a great blog!
So, this is definitely a different kind of project for me. Every step is pretty tedious, but I learned a ton from doing it and I love the result. Now, I need something on the other wall. The moral of this story is: Don’t be afraid to
pretend you can do stuff try new and exciting things.
