Step graffiti and other stuff at the Duck

I got a good start on my step graffiti and got most of it installed in my last trip to the Duck. these steps go from the kitchen to the garage

Since they were on the steps....i used a 'step' design

I put a quarter round trim on the bottom to finish them off.

Still have a few more pieces to do at the top....then the graffiti madness might be over....maybe. haha

I found these wooden.....things....boxes?...shelves?....i don't know what to call them. i have carted them around for a couple years and was about to the point of throwing them out because i couldn't figure out what to do with them. finally stacked them on top of each other, and did this...

They make a dandy little bookcase.

Most of the books fit between the dowels. the ones that were too fat, i just opened them up and went over the dowel.

Then there were some books that were a tad too tall, so i cut the dowels out of one cabinet so the books could lie flat. this is for my JD Robb books and the Amish story books.

I had been saving wooden rulers for a while. and used a bunch of them in the office....if you'll remember...around the window. i used more around the edge of the desk.

Cut to 1 1/2 inches...different thicknesses, different colors. one neon yellow was a plastic.

I had to do a bit of wood reorganization in the garage. when jim was there last time...and needed a was difficult to pull out what you needed because the boards were all piled on top of each other. but now....

They stand up like little soldiers.

Easier to pull out what you need. that was my exercise for the day....pull all the boards down....then put them all back up. haha

I got a bit of sanding done.

The other side of the second pocket door...

And the office door...  this door needs a piece of glass....and the paint scraped off the 2 pieces of glass that are in there. scraping paint off of glass is not easy or fun. i wound up using a wood chisel. 

I bought some pale orange paint...called valley of flowers.  who names this stuff?

And i painted the side of the first pocket door that faces the dining room

And the side of the office door that faces the dining room. and i did get that first pane of glass scraped of paint. i couldn't face the second pane have to leave a job for next time, right?

This is the same paint that i painted the laundry room door and the wall behind it. and i decided it was too plain so it needed 'something'. that something is Zentangle......woohoo!!

I just started it a bit. a long, long way to go. my sharpies ran out of ink quickly. plus, my arm got tired, too. too bad i didn't think of this before the door got hung. no way in hell is that door coming back down again. this project is going to take a while.

And that, my friends, was my week. how was your week?
