Requests???

The lazy hazy days of Summer On Crooked Creektt
have left "Mr. Ed" with w a y too much time on his hands.

So~o~o. . .
over morning coffee when he turned to me and ask, "Any request???"
I seized the moment!




Each time I re~style On Crooked Creektt's built~in Dining Room china cabinet, 
I wish the bottom shelf was raised about an inch allowing for accessories 
to better be viewed when the glass cabinet doors are closed.



No sooner said than. . . 
with tape measure in hand, "Mr. Ed" set out to remedy my cabinet.







He measured, cut and hammered a removable brace to the lower cabinet shelf.



When I inquired as to why he had chosen to make the shelf temporary,
I remember "Mr. Ed" stating something to the fact,
 "In case you change your mind and later want me to remove the shelf".









What an amazing difference "Mr. Ed's" handiwork made 
when I began re~styling On Crooked Creektt's  
Dining Room built~in china cabinet! 



Coffee, 
             one totally amazing husband. . .
                                                                         and a simple request.



Until next time. . .

He's a keeper for sure, Pat. Maybe next time he has too much time on his hands, you could send him my way! : )

Hi Pat,

Your darling one is a keeper, for sure. Wonderful job and everything looks so nice.

My hubby is also like that....he can do almost anything around the house. How very blessed we are!

So he made a riser for it! Smart guy! Dan is not comfortable doing woodwork so I doubt I'd get him to do something like this. Kudos to hubby!

What a smart idea. I have the same problem. Maybe I could borrow your mister Ed.

Such a beautiful cabinet styled so beautifully.
And I don't blame you, if a husband actually volunteers to help, then jump on it! Tell him he did a great job!
