Well… I’m most emphatically NOT Gilda Radner,

but there’s definitely a whole lotta improvisation going on with this project.


But, sometimes, you’ve just got to make it work, kwim?

They should offer a class at every high school specifically designed to teach “make-it-work” skills…


That class would’ve really come in handy more than a few times in the last, ahem… several years…

I mean… teaching kids Math and Science is awesome, but will they know how to manage when Math and Science square off and take opposing positions and Home Depot is out of Mini Kreg Jig Pocket Hole Kits?

Yes.  Make It Work 101 should be required for a High School Diploma these days… Can I get a high-five down there in the comments?

If you follow me on Instagram, then there a chance you’ve see this sneako-peako…

Be back soon, for much progress has been made, and the headboard dilemma at The Bold Abode is furiously being remedied!

And I do so hope this Make It Work Project deserves and A.  I’m a bit of an over-achiever…

  1. Ok, yes, seriously need a class! What are these kids gonna do when they need to figure something out? Oh yeah, they’ll have YouTube. HA (I totally sneaked a peak and it is GAH-geous!)

    1. Ha! Yes, YouTube! It’s where I go… hehehe…

      Thanks, Jenni! I’m ready to get the entire room finished!

  2. It’s looking good Gwen! And waiting for a kreg might have been a good thing…just sayin’

    1. Haha… the guy at HD said they discontinued the one I was looking for, so it scared me to order it online.

      So far, it’s holding together!

  3. Ok, over achiever…send me a pic of the completed headboard and as much of the room as possible. I’m gonna have to make some new additions to your loot to go with all this awesomeness. Is it navy or black? We can’t have that old blue in the room with new blue!

  4. Can’t wait to see the results. I also don’t think they can teach make it work skills, you either got em or ya don’t.

  5. Oh, I could use a class on that right now…and one on power tools…and how to do things the right way the first time…sigh

    1. Ha! Me, too… I’m trying to do things the right way the first time, but my inner Lazy often takes over, ugh!

    1. Sort of… It’s not a lot of fun when your laying things out in the driveway with tools that are “sort of” the right kind! Ha… What I wouldn’t give for the real stuff and a real workshop!
