I love my old audio gear, you know, the ones with knobs, a few buttons and no remote control? Simple stereo.
Many year ago (like 20+ years), we did some remodeling where we had a wall constructed to divide the Dining room and Living room, which are at different elevations and were previously by a *hideous* banister.
The wall was cool back I the ’90 but was long overdue for an update.
Here’s a before shot.
Basically, I removed the upper part of the wall. Yes, the wall is load bearing, but the house was constructed with a beam to carry the load, so there’s no harm. We covered both sides of the wall with wood of different lengths and thicknesses. They come pre-finished with double-sided tape on the back, so you ‘simply’ stick them to the wall.
We purchased a reclaimed floor board from an old Thrashing barn from JC Woodworking, cleaned it up, sanded it a bit while preserving the character of the board, the sealed it with 6 coats of polyurethane. It came out pretty bitchin’.
I sat Bella at the kitchen table and captured her and her reflection. Photographing her is a real challenge; she can’t sit still for a second. Most of my photos of her are blurred. A contribution to Weekend Reflections #381
I was reflecting upon 2016 and was searching my archives for a fitting photo to start 2017 and this one spoke loudly. There’s a long road ahead; keep your head up and be inspired by the greatness that surrounds you.
