For those of you curious to know how my DIY is coming along...all I can say is that it's coming! Its taking a lot longer than I had expected, and I don't have too much patience for these long drawn out projects, but I have decided this time to see it through from start to finish, and take my time in doing so. No hurrying this time! There's a lot of work left to do but here are some progress pics.....I need encouragement to keep going :-)
Also, the locksmith bailed on me last Sunday, and we are all dying to know what's in the mystery box. The locksmith is missing in action, took off for his village for the festivities and is keeping mum about his return date, so I was resigned to having to wait till His Majesty showed up. Locksmiths are hard to find......! But, a guardian angel fellow blogger (hint: to her I say "Tusen Takk") spread the word...and I just received a call from a locksmith who has promised to show up tomorrow!! Yay yay yay!!!
