I am keeping a secret. The idea was not mine. It came from Jane over at Cottage at the Crossroads. She is keeping a secret in her laundry room too. Read about it here.
Jane is one of those people that has a knack for doing many things well. Visiting her blog is like visiting a friend, and if you have ever corresponded with her, then you know that it is true. Hop over and pay her a visit if you have never visited her.
Jane did hers a little bit differently than I did. I liked her way better but could not find the type of Velcro that I needed. I had to improvise, so I used a tension rod and made a simple rod pocket for this piece of material.
There is a peek at my secret below.
Actually it isn't my secret, it's Maizie's secret! Her litter box and a container that holds fresh litter and other necessities is kept underneath.
The table top was found and my handy husband just added some legs. It was intended to be used as a laundry folding table. It would be handy if I actually used it, admittedly I fold laundry when I watch the news at night.
You can see that the table top had seen better days, but I liked it just like it was. I sat an old washboard on top and bucket for those socks that have gotten separated from their mates. An old jar holds some clothes pins and the other jar holds a bar of my homemade laundry soap.
This washboard reminds me that it really isn't work to load the washing machine and let it do the work for me!
Another project completed! Thanks Jane, your idea was awesome!
The porch floor was dry and I couldn't help myself. I had to put my stuff back up there. There are a few things that need repainting, but I just couldn't wait! I have missed my porch! Abigail enjoyed the sunshine this afternoon, she missed the porch too.
Come join me for a glass of iced tea. I promise that it tastes better on a warm sunny afternoon, sitting in one of those chairs!
