One of the things that we had planned on doing was an art project.I follow Josh Gad on my Instagram and he posted this:
He just had this installed in his home.
Well we started it.
The Lumbar Store!
The blocks in the piece we were inspired by we 2X2 or 3X3 blocks.
Our Lumbar store only had 1×1 or 4×4
We went with the 1×1 for a couple of reasons:
Next, after making some cuts we wanted to make sure it would work. It was looking so good.
SO my sweet Karl got to work cutting up some wood!
You can really see all the saw dust on he dark shirt and in his hair.
Meanwhile, Mirah and I started staining.
We chose to do a stain rather than just straight paint, because we wanted to be able to see the wood under the paint.
We wanted to have different shades from the same color
There is something really satisfying about looking at all of them together.
