My mom lives in a very small space, so she knows how to utilize every single bit of space she has. She just purchased a new chair to sit across from her sofa. It sits next to her built in cabinet/book shelves; but there is no room for a little table nearby. Mom realized that if she had a piece of wood the right size, she could open a drawer in the cabinet, set the wood across the top of the drawer, and it would be the perfect place for a drink or snack. She asked if Mr. racky could cut her a piece of wood to fit. Now c’mon! We’re not going to just give her a plain old plank of wood. This is custom cut, painted, and we added some handles so it can double as a tray. Mom wanted the word “cheers” painted on it. I added the judgy message for the other side, so she can communicate her position to her company. All she has to do is rotate the board so the appropriate message faces her guest.
Here’s how it fits on a drawer. Her cabinet is white, and her drawer is a little narrower than ours, so it should fit nicely. Now that I’ve got my vaccine, I plan to visit Mom next week for the first time since December 2019. I’ll hand deliver her new table top then.
EDIT: I forgot to talk about the words. I wrote them out on tracing paper, then used a #2 pencil to cover the back of the paper. The tracing was taped into place and a pen was used to trace out the letters. The graphite transfers the image to the board. I used a tiny brush and black acrylic paint to paint the words on. Easy!
