Other than quilting

I do have a lot of other interests and hobbies besides quilting. Here's a look at some of my other recent projects. I did a faux shiplap wall in the grandkids room a couple of weeks ago. I love the look but wasn't sure I'd want it for a long time. This can be easily removed without damage to the sheetrock. I used 1/8" black whiteboard tape, a pencil, a level, and about 3 hours time it was done.


Oh, and I did use a glue gun to put a dot of glue in the corners to help secure the tape. This is my favorite little room in our home. We are having a guest tonight so the kids are sleeping upstairs with momma and daddy and I was able to get the room back in tip top shape ---read: hide the toys. :)


Another project I am currently working on is some board and batten in our back hallway.


This hasn't been what I would call an easy job. I first put the vertical boards up without worrying too much about hitting studs - not a good idea. I decided later to not worry so much about them being exactly a certain distance apart but to make sure I hit studs. I am now on my fifth (!?) iteration of spackling and sanding. I used furring strips so they were very, very rough. I'm resigned to the fact that they won't be perfectly smooth. I hope to get the first coat of paint on this evening.


So, what hobbies do you have other than quilting??


Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so happy how this project turned out. Love it!
