|These angled cabinets at sawdustgirl.com would work as a closet for hanging shirts if you put a rod in there.|
But I don't want my parents sleeping in a dusty work zone when they come to visit so I think these projects will have to wait for another day.
Then I thought that Dad could help with making Sofi Sue's loft bed.
|A modified version of this loft from ana-white.com would work well in Sofia's room.|
But Sofi Sue's room is nowhere near ready for loft construction to begin. Then I realized that there was no way I was going to finish the living room bookshelves before Dad got here and also that this wasn't a one man job. So, surprise Dad, we're working on building some kick-butt bookshelves together! I've already filled knotholes and sanded them down. Then I chiseled the extra wood off of the end of my boards.

|That house used to have a roof, now it's going to have a second story!|
