At long last my feeble attempt at building a much–needed bookshelf out of the boards from our old horse barn that was located at the Lamme Farm is complete. Most of the delay was due to the super cold and long winter.
Last summer, we took down the old horse barn behind our house and salvaged as much lumber as possible. Built in 1899, it had far outlived its usefulness and had become, not only an eyesore, but unsafe as well. Jeff McCotter used some of the planks and timbers to build a stunning platform bed, as well as, these beautiful picture frames. I finally got around to taking some old glass to Hometown Hardware and having glass cut for them, then i finally ordered and received the frame turn buttons to hold the photos in and the hangers, then finally cut foam board pieces for backing. Then FINALLY, this morning, assembled the whole affair. If you had frames made like i did, would you want them to come back with glass, backing, turn buttons and hanger already installed? or would you prefer gathering the materials and doing those parts yourself?
