New Projects!

Adam and I are obsessed with making things are own these days. These are our current projects.

Adam got this frame from work before they threw it out. It was once white, then kelly green, and lastly that very bright blue. He is hoping to either stain it or repaint it a normal color and use it to frame this map he has been dying to blow up and print out. It's a map of the old train system in the Wheaton/Chicagoland area. The train tracks are now gone but the local towns used it to make the prairie path where people can run or ride their bikes all the way to Chicago if they wanted. So the map has all the towns, golfcourses, rivers, etc that Adam grew up around. It's really fun.

Now that we want to have people over more often we decided we might need to get a real table and stop expecting people to stand while they eat since we only have 2 barstools. Crazy, right? I thought it would be great exercise to stand while eat every time we have someone over. Brian's (our friend) mom and stepdad are hoping to move so they are getting rid of some stuff. They were getting rid of this table set and so Adam snagged it. I cannot wait to redo the table and the chairs for that matter! So pumped!

I wanted a home work station so we've been on the hunt for a small desk that would work. I've got big plans for this cute guy. Can't wait to get started on it.

I love the frame like it is. Crazy, I know. Also, I cannot wait to see what you do with it all especially that oh so cute desk.
