So! Apparently I am a carpenter now. One fine morning I realised that I was not feeling all that fine. I knew that I really wanted to distract myself constructively from some very bothersome thoughts. I drew up my options and one of them was this: buying an electric drill. As usual I put that on the backburner and went about doing things I had procrastinated for long: getting my car-insurance renewed etc. And as luck would have it, the car insurance dude’s office was right beside a nice-looking hardware store. I went inside and five minutes later I was the owner of this:

And after putting up a few wall-frames, key hangers and mirrors on the wall I felt I was ready to make bigger things happen. So I dismantled a huge entertainment unit last night, pulled out plywood that would make good shelves etc. and started to work. I needed a bedside table. I found these:

And soon(after 2 hours) it was done! Check it out:

Pretty neat for  a totally untrained carpenter, eh? I think so too!

I am incredibly happy with myself right now. And I think that’s all that matters anyway. I can’t thank the Universe enough for blessing me with unbounded creativity!

Time to go out and buy some cute things to keep on my side-table 😀
