Cedar fence. I planed them down and then ripped them 2 1/2” wide. My wife made the stain and stained all of them.

Fantastic and totally unique. You and your wife are making me feel bad about my plan to just paint everything white.

That's quite the contrast!
Your wife's sense of color is fun! I'm even going to show them to my wife
(even though I hope it doesn't give her any ideas -- especially about our house! )

For a bus, I love the sense of whimsy.

Be careful David. I’ve regretted giving my wife ideas a couple of times.

Bluto build kitchen base cabinets

The kitchen base cabinets are finished. My wife is pleased that they are all drawers. She hates digging in the back trying to find something. She made and painted the drawer pulls. Im glad she is the artist.

Fantastic colors, and great idea with the shelf right under the sink (? or is that just like a counter level disposal chute?).

It’s a drawer. Most of the time it’s only a tilt out tray because the sink is in the way. Because the sink is small, I had a little more room.

That is crafty. A nice place to store the dish washing utensils once they are dry.

You are correct Native. That's one thing that we have to do in a shorty. Use ever damn nook & cranny for storage.
