Here is a tiny update to show the type of refurbishing I've been up to. Today I fixed this shelf that broke in half.
I biked to ACE Hardware, bought some wood glue, glued the seam, put two clamps on it, and now I'm just waiting for it to dry so I can continue working on the mission style piano bench to which this piece belongs
This is the tiniest of projects that I've done but I had to post SOMETHING to show the world. I'm taking pieces of furniture that were one step away from going to the landfill and making them new again.
I can't stress how happy this has made me in the last month, and I feel so fortunate to be in a position where this sort of thing is possible.
Life is good.
