Attics are usually the places of our imagination (inspired very much from stupid horror movies) where all the evil creeps. Nevertheless, once you face your fears, or ask a friend to keep you company upstairs, the attic can be the place of all the awesome finds.
Think about it. Some old dusty mirror that once the dust is all cleaned, would be perfect bohemian touch right above your fireplace. Or, some old dresses from your mother’s closet which are totally just making a come-back. Or, these boards. God, I really don’t like horror movies.
When I stumbled upon this find, it was actually a longer one-pieced wooden board. Not to mention, all dusty and spider web-y. But it was so naturally-aged; it had just started to rotten on one side, which gave it a rusty look, and I knew that it would be perfect for this little project I had in mind. I am really sorry I don’t have any pictures of it when I found it, and hope that my efforts of painting a pretty close one with words were not a moo point.
I asked my father to help me cut the board in two pieces (actually do it for me, wink wink; don’t be judge-y). After that was done, I cleaned and sand it. Once its surface was all nice and smooth, I applied varnish to it and done.
Given the fact that I am a major procrastinator, the initial idea as to using this board went from I’ll-do-this-next-weekend to an echo that I would catch every now and then, usually when I have my hands full. And then, again, to the I’ll-do-this-next-weekend thing. In the meantime, I was occasionally using it as a wooden Food Board, which was also great, but I finally did what I was postponing all this time. This weekend was The Weekend. So, stay tuned ’cause I’ll be sharing what I did with the wooden board later this week.
Until then, here’s a little teaser (other then the holes): Hang in there.
