Journey to Patchwork Festival: Building “Lucky”

The past couple days, Jeff has been hard at work designing and building our little stall for the Patchwork Festival.  Here’s how it started out:

 

It should be noted that Jeff designed this with easy set up and clean up in mind, so it all breaks down easily in about three steps.  Pretty amazing, isn’t he? 🙂

Next we went to Home Depot, then Lowe’s, then Home Depot, and possibly Lowe’s again.  But we got a good price and found all the materials we needed to get to work.

After Jeff sanded the pieces down and put them together, it was time to paint!  We used the same paint we used a few years ago for the accent wall in our old apartment.  It’s kind of become “our color,” if you will.

As soon as it was dry enough, we put it together to get a rough look at what we’re dealing with:

It may be a small space, but it’s super cute!  We still have to add some stuff for support and to hold up the fabric on top, and obviously fix the fabric so it looks way nicer, but I think we’re off to a good start.

With some inspiration from a good neighbor, we have christened it “Lucky.”

Welcome to the family, Lucky.
