I am on a roll again….since our weather changed for the better and got a lot warmer this week, I pulled out my sheets of wood stored in the garage and decided to make something special. Since we are going to do a garden this year, I thought that I would make something that I have entitled “Home is Where the Garden Is” – A Wood House!
I saw a post on how to make a clay house pot, but since I don’t have any clay, I thought that I would try to make it out of wood. I drew the house sides and included a chimney (cut 2), cut out two sides and a bottom. Then after sanding all the pieces really well, I nailed all the pieces together. My house box ended up being 8″ tall x 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.
My original thought was to paint the house a lime green color as it will add a nice splash of color, but now I am thinking that since the Fourth of July is coming up, that I could paint it red, white, and blue and add some stars on it. But, I want to HEAR how you think I should paint it! I am ready for all your thoughts & comments!
