How cool are these skateboard deck shelves I made for Paige?! Gah!
A while back I was talking to the owner of Mosaik, our local skateshop, about how I wanted to buy a mini deck to make a shelf for Paige's room and he was like "come here...would these work?" and he shows me this like floor to ceiling stack of broken decks he's collected over the years. Whoa! What?! Then he let me pick out a couple to use for my shelves, which blew my mind a little. What a seriously nice guy!
I love stacks of anything, so I just think these look so pretty!
I grabbed a green one and a pretty sweet pink and blue one. I love the pink inside that shows up on the broken parts. Ugh. So cool looking! Here is the green one before: not too exciting, right?
So. Amazing. We love theeeem!! And Paige really likes having a place to display her special little pocket monsters ;o) and turtle friends which are some of her most prized possessions (head shake, slight eye roll.)
I'll have to give you guys a little tour of Paige's room soon because it's one of my favorite rooms in our house! And these shelves are definitely one of my favorite things in it. I'm quite proud of them!
So today was day 10 of Thirty Days of Happy! This has been so wonderful so far. Really. I can see a huge difference in the attitudes of our whole family and it feels so good. Today a bunch of people from church got together for a service project and then we all had lunch together afterward and that was great. Then we went to froyo with some of our friends/basically family and then they came over to our house and stayed until almost 11 just talking about whatever. So pretty much it was the perfect day. Man I have a good life. (Thank you, God. I really love you.) :O)
Hope your day was equally happy!
And thanks for hanging out with me here every day. I love you for it!
