why do i find decorating my personal space so challenging?  especially on a budget.  ho hum . . . went to home depot yesterday (the one where i grew up, not nyc, don’t get me started) and i look forward to seeing if i can actually construct a sturdy bookcase from poplar wood, threaded pipe and flanges . . . i’d never stained raw wood before and it came out pretty uneven — but hey, that’s what makes it ooak, right lol
