Kristy has transformed her small bedroom into a beautiful spa-like retreat for herself and husband, Shane. A retreat that is much needed because Kristy has become a real Sawdust SheWoman and is taking on projects all over her entire house! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, let’s finish THIS story before we move on.
I am so happy to be writing my final entry for this project because it represents the end of a most challenging, at times angering, but incredibly gratifying experience. It also means I can share my FABULOUS bedroom with you all and move on to renovate the rest of my house with my new skills and confidence I have gained through this process.
The doors and drawers opened up a whole new “can of worms” for me. I made quite a few mistakes but learnt from them all.
I may have been called a messy builder along the way…shhh don’t tell anyone
I tried to kid myself into thinking I was finished (mainly because I have a tendency to run out of steam towards the end of something) so I tried to make the top cabinets look like open storage…BUT Sandra was the only person to tell me the brutal truth….”it looks unfinished”…….ummm that’s because it IS UNFINISHED Sandra (confession I was just tired)! Thank the universe for Sawdust Girl, she does not let us apprentices get away with anything!
Surprisingly I whipped the last two doors up in a couple of hours and got them up as quick as I could so I could REALLY be finished and what I difference it made! To be continued… Part 6, the REVEAL!
