I haven’t posted here since I moved into my new house. I no longer have a space for my ladder pot rack, so I repurposed it as a bookshelf. This was super easy. I just leaned it against the wall and secured it at the top with two screws. The locally made wall sconce really helps dress it up a bit. My wife picked it up in town Portland, but I can’t remember the name of the artist. I’ll be posting a lot more here when the weather gets warmer. I got a table saw for xmas and I’m going to start making my own frames for my photography.
It was 90 degrees in Portland yesterday which inspired me to make Horchata. This stuff is sweet and delicious and a good way to beat the heat.
This one is quick, easy, and delicious. I’m a giant Bánh mì fan (Vietnamese sandwiches) and the shops that sell them always have these too. If you’re in Maine, hit Kim’s Sandwich Shop, you can’t go wrong. People say avocado’s are super fatty, meh, this is worth it.
These have been done to death but they are super awesome and I couldn’t help myself. They are awesome decorations and more recently I’ve seen them used as wedding centerpieces.
This project has been in the works for a while. I knew that I wanted to make it but I couldn’t find the right ladder. My pops scored this one at a flea market. It’s perfect. I was specifically looking for one with round rungs. The U hooks I used for this could definitely be smaller but I didn’t feel like going back to Home Depot.
Decided to mix things up and do a recipe. This is one I’ve made forever and I’m not 100% positive where I picked it up. It is always a crowd pleaser for brunch or breakfast. Special thank you to Dawnland Mama for the farm fresh duck eggs (even though she is a vegan herself).
My Wife has wanted me to make this for a while and the three day weekend gave me a good opportunity to work on it. Just in time for a garden party. Disclaimer: this is not incredibly sturdy and if constructed like below it should probably lean against a wall for support.

I had to decide to whether or not to go all Martha Stewart on your asses and…. I decided I had to. This is a cool way to class up a summer soiree or any gathering. You can also do this in the fall with leaves instead of flowers. Having a theme party? Freeze something else in there. Don’t have a 28oz coffee can? Use a milk carton and you’ll have a rectangular block. BTW the booze I used here is Cold River Vodka. Maine Represent!!

I had been using this trunk as a coffee table forever and I got bored with it and didn’t really have the space for it. I figured if I flipped it vertical it would save space and I could re-purpose it. I also added caster wheels to the bottom, which aren’t pictured but make it more mobile.
