Things are coming together over at the parents house! Last weekend after a wonderful day with Eddie and Eileen, I headed home to work on my mom's house. Goal number one was to start making a headboard for Reese's bedroom. Referred to by many as "the room where things go to die..." I bet there is someone out there reading who can attest to this statement. No. It's not an exaggeration. Let's see if we can find a before picture...
These pictures were taken a couple months ago during one of my cleaning (or ruthless, heartless purging of "might be" useful items if you ask mom ) days. This was after probably 3 hours of cleaning and organizing. Prior to this photo being taken camping gear was spilling out of the closet waist-deep (ok, that one is an exaggeration) and clothes were piled up in boxes, bags, or just on the floor behind the bicycle.
SO. Last weekend I began building the headboard for this room with the help of dad or Demolition Darryl as you might know him.
By the time I had nail headed half the headboard, these were the nail heads I had ruined and had to pull out. Those boogers are tough! Yes, I had all the tools: the nylon head hammer, the handy-dandy spacer. Still hard.
