For Christmas, my older daughter gave my younger daughter a do-it-yourself kit, that when constructed, becomes a miniature library/study. The picture below shows the finished product if all instructions in the guide included with the kit are followed to the letter.
I liked the kit, as did my older daughter. She thought it would be great fun to purchase one for me, as well as for herself, then have a competition while we build, and it seemed like a good way to relieve some of the boredom brought about by the pandemic. We were to decide on a theme for our rooms and construct ours with that theme in mind. Of course this meant our rooms would not look like the picture when finished. Elements of the build were given a timeframe in which to complete, and the categories in which to gain points would be skill and detail, creativity, and humour. The judge, my younger daughter, would score points based on these categories.
I thought, since I’m very short on blog subject inspiration, I’d let you follow the progress of my entries, and ultimately let you know who won. Below are my first two entries for the competition. Unfortunately, one piece on the second bookshelf was warped, thus it looks a little off-balance. I don’t suppose anyone will be able to guess the theme of my room until it’s completed, but I hope you enjoy following the competition as it progresses.
