These book shelves were bureau drawers that my husband salvaged from my parent's basement. He lugged, painted and drilled them while I was away one weekend. Everytime I walk in the house I see them and think of him.
He's also handy with smaller items. He bought this xylophone for our daughter this past Christmas. It was and is her favorite toy. The look of joy on her face while she bangs away at it is beautiful. After just a few weeks of her hard practice she has managed to break off several keys. Thanks to my husband's ingenuity she can still enjoy this wonderful present.
Oh, and that table the xylophone is on...he made that too.
I love him.
