Jason has been working on something for the past few weekends. Before you get too excited, it's not for me or for our home. (Sigh!) Although, I would love to have it in my home, the cabinet was made for a a friend. It will be used as a pantry. They live in an older home, with lots of character, but low on cabinet space in the kitchen. They are expecting their third child, a baby girl. They already have two boys...ages eight and nine. They are all excited, and are arranging and making preparations and room for her arrival.
Jason custom built the pantry to fit their kitchen. He also took into consideration Beth's heighth when opening the doors as to the placement of the handles and how to place the shelves. He had me measure cereal boxes to make sure he made one of the shelves tall enough to accomodate them.
He finished the cabinet this weekend and we delivered it last night. I was so excited to see the cabinet in their home and they were excited to have the extra storage room and I believe they really loved it (both Beth and Randall), and Jason was just pleased that everyone was happy.
I sure wish that I had thought to take my camera and get a picture of it in their home because it looked great against the color of their walls!
I'm so glad he finished it by Christmas for them, and most importantly in well enough time before the arrival of their little Bella in January.
Now Jason has two more things to build in time for Christmas...one for my mom and one for Joy. I probably won't get to show you those until after Christmas, but I'll take pictures and show you then.
Well I hope everyone is warm and safe during the ice and snow that I'm hearing alot of you all are having. We are actually under a winter advisory tonight here in the south with freezing rain and ice expected....I hope it's not ice....snow would be lovely, but I don't welcome the ice as we ALWAYS lose electricity. I'm actually holding my breath trying to get this scheduled to post, as our satellite internet service is going on and off this evening with the weather.
In spite of the weather, I hope you all have a wonderful week and a great time during this Christmas season filled with fun, relaxation, and memories with your family! :)
