Peace on Earth, "Good-will" rocks!

Problem: When you walk in my front door, if my bedroom door is open you can see my bed. (Side note: One of my neighbors with the same floorplan has a mirror on the wall above her bed. She was in the shower and her kids opened the front door. Let's just say she made eye contact with the person at the door while in the shower. Yikes!) No mirror for us and we've gotten in the habit of making it, but really.... it's annoying. The other day at Goodwill I saw this hutch and I couldn't get it out of my head... "where could I use that?!?" I couldn't figure it out and I didn't buy it. When I got home I saw the half wall and it hit me... That's where I could put it! It's two sided so it would look good on both sides. I went back and got it. A couple of coats of paint by me and some trim work by my handy brother David later... built in shelf. Cost $20, plus about $30 in supplies. Not being able to see my bed from the front door... Priceless!

And this is why I love you. You are so creative. It looks amazing but what is even more wonderful is that the cost was NOTHING compared to the new look. Impressive!

What a great way to solve that problem! You are the master of all things crafty. Sure wish I had that talent! Remember when you had to do my visual aid/artsy stuff for me in HS cuz I had no talent whatsoever?

Half walls are dangerous and you should be able to leave the bed unmade it you want to! Ha ha. Good one Angela... you are a genius!
