After the construction crew left, my part began. I've been painting (about 18 hours worth, all over the house), putting a bed together and making custom art and design pieces for the room. Over the four-day weekend, I made three Roman blinds and a new wall clock shaped like the state of Missouri with the mechanism sitting about where Springfield finds itself on the map. My friend Joe T. gave me some pallets a week ago and I cut up the most interesting of them, ran it through my table saw and then edge glued the pieces together in a blank. I then made a stencil from an outline of the state I found online and printed tiled on two 11x17 pieces of paper. The Roman blinds I winged from a couple of online tutorials and some pics I used for reference.
