macgyver style living

27 Jun

a weekend of weekendness, the first in far too long,
complete with pancakes, closet rehauls, and a few macgyver moments.

did you know, for example, that following a bookshelf’s assembly directions isn’t always productive?
that target advises an enormous pilot hole where it may in fact not be needed?
and that in the end said pilot hole may work best as an unexpected vase for a faux flower bouquet*?

this is true.
i tried it for you.
you’re so very welcome.

what happens when abby gets drill-happy.

cheers to a week with long-awaited family and the surprise macgyver in us all.

*cheers also to luke, who stumbled on me, drill in hand, worried expression deepening, and suggested a wall-bouquet would heal all wounds.

    I think the wall bouquet is genius, it adds personality and charm to the design of what otherwise would have been an ordinary bookshelf. And as long as you avoid the Emergency Room–or have fewer than 5 stitches–any construction project is a success in my book.
