    Here are a couple of pics of recent projects my DH completed for me.

    My husband found the desk by a dumpster and brought it home and refinished it for me. It is an old stenographer's desk and he adapted a draw to hold spools of thread.

    The pegboard shelf was designed and built from scratch by him. I told him I wanted the pegboard framed so it looked pretty...he rolled his eyes and then brought this beauty in the house a few days later. I am loved! :mrgreen:

    I hope the pics load okay....lol

    Yep, he did a good job of spoiling you.

    I use pegboard for hanging my rulers also, it is wonderful. It hangs behind the door in my sewing room, so you don't see it unless you close the door. Great spot to make use of wall space.

    It looks great. It is wonderful to have someone who can help make things easier. The frame does make it prettier.

    Any chance he would make you a table for around your machine. It makes life easier to piece, put on bindings and especially for FMQ

    I asked him about the possibility of cutting out the top and setting the machine down inside. He said he could definitely do that. I'm kind of torn about "defacing" an antique desk, but on the other hand.... lol

    Great idea! and a very nice hubby. If you would like to cover the holes use fabric with fusible web (like wonder under) on the back of the fabric then iron it onto the pegboard; or use large scrap book papers and spray adhesive on the back to adhere-then use small ribbon glued on to cover over the seams. Both work beautifully- I've done it both ways. It makes the pegboard look like artwork with that nice frame your hubby put on it for you. The cool part is you only put the in holes that you need and the others are hiding. :idea: :P

    These are great. In your case, DH could mean "Designated Handyman." He sure did a nice job on everything. :) :)
