Co-Sleeper Weekend One
November 17, 2013 § 9 Comments
I had a productive weekend and I am wiped out! Friday I came home and realized I had forgotten to leave a rawhide out for Mr. Denver while I went to work, he decided to make due with my hat and a pair of pants… (equals angry Macy). I was REALLY bummed about the hat, it’s my favorite hat because it doesn’t look weird on me, most hats look weird. Not only that, it has a story with it, on one of our trips to Salmon my dad and uncles were hanging out in a bar when someone comes in and shoots a guy, I believe it was actually the first recorded murder in Salmon at the time, there has since been at least another one… Anyway, my dad helped do CPR on the guy which didn’t work out but. On the way home he was walking and happened upon the hat in the parking lot (I didn’t say it as a ‘good’ story, just that it was a story ). Anyway, Denny got it. I was going to take it apart and use it as a pattern to make a new one but I decided to just try to fix it for now :). (I am watching ‘Extreme Cheapskates’ which probably makes this seem much more normal, only to me… but I loved the hat!). So, Saturday I fixed my hat and my pants. I also grabbed some more fabric that I had stored at moms to make some more skirts.
I also started in on MiniMiller’s co-sleeper. I was going to look at using some of the reclaimed hardwood floor that Stacey and I used but when it got right down to it I used the excuse that I am tired and pregnant so I am just going to buy some nice poplar to build it out of instead of spending the time to de-nail and plane the birch. I went to Lowe’s with Mr. Denny and got a hundred bucks worth of wood/fasteners/glue/dowels and we were off! Oh, I should also mention, I got a baby crib mattress off of craigslist, I am going to make the co-sleeper the size of a crib so that when she doesn’t outgrow it so quick, when it’s time I can modify the rails a bit and presto a crib! So, here are the pictures Hope you are all well.
