Use a pattern you like for the Fall and another for Winter and have a pretty table both seasons. I've made another for a hostess gift.

This humble shelf is nod to my Grandpa Vern. I only used a hammer and nails to make it, but I summoned his words and lessons to do it. If your little person needs some wall storage, this is a super simple project.
You need: five yard sticks (or the appropriate number to cover the dimensions of the supports you choose); two pre-cut shelf supports from your favorite home improvement store (or cut them yourself if you have a jigsaw); and nail the yard sticks to the supports. For under ten dollars, you'll have a great shelf you made for your kiddo.
Thanks Grandpa Vern!

These colors remind me of their wedding--sunny and seaside all in one. The yellow blocks are 17" and the sashing (small blocks) are 6" (measurements prior to construction). I hope they make a home for it in the car--take it to the lake, the cabin, the concert. . . let it be the backdrop for memories while they are out and about.
Happy Wedding Dear Britta!
