Honey-do #1346

Mr. C is wonderful, amazing and talented, and he would be all of these things even if he hadn't hung up my new cornice board in our breakfast area this past weekend, but completing this lingering Honey-do sure didn't hurt his rep. My dad helped too (see: 'moral support') and in the process of busting out the laser level, we may have broken our cat's brain. No worries, it was only the size of a pea to begin with. Anyway, here is the finished and installed product!!

The fabric is f/ PB, but I got it from a friend at a great discount, and the board itself was made by a wonderful person I found using Etsy's Alchemy feature (because I am many things, but handy is not one of them).

Etsy is like an e-bay for artists and craftsmen. The Alchemy feature is cool because: "buyers can post requests for handmade items, and then sellers bid on the opportunity to make the goods." It's a win-win.

So, Total cost of project?
$50 for fabric, hardware and design
+ $13 postage and shipping
+ $4 drinks from Sonic for the guys while they were installing it

All-in-all, I'm quite pleased. A big shout out to Jessica on Etsy who created the board. She has some very cool stuff and you should check out her Etsy site or her website at www.jesseleecreations.com. And of course, I owe a huge "Thank YOU!" to my Honey-doer for not only installing but funding the project. :)
