it is just a wall, but.....

It is just a small wall,
but I am so proud of my husband and I
for building it.


Over twenty-five years ago
we added air-conditioning to our house
And they needed a place to add a
cold air return.

So my husband and I tore out an uninteresting
cabinet so they could put a vent in.

And we have lived with this black hole
ever since.

We always thought we would add bookcases or something

But nothing ever happened and recently
we decided a plain wall would be just fine.

I have never build a wall before
so the lumber yard was the first stop.

For instructions and materials.

 We used molding recycled from the "black hole"
for the top and bottom of the wall.

  Ta Da!

A new wall.

And you can see that we have a real life.

Notice our ever-present vacuum.

Next project is some more painting
in this room.

I was going to change the yellow paint in this room, 
but when Home Depot could match this 15+ years old
Ralph Lauren color exactly i decided not to.


  1. That turned out quite well! I had to laugh when you mentioned the vacuum. I hate to admit it, but mine is usually stuck in a corner somewhere. I have such good intentions. I've decided that when the house isn't quite up to par and someone stops by it makes it look like I'm in the middle of cleaning.

  2. Great job on the wall! I love the yellow and I am happy you kept that color:) Enjoy your evening dear friend, HUGS!


I love to read your comments.
