All of this seemingly off topic chat has led to my latest project... a sunglasses holder. I seem to spend 15 minutes before every trip hunting for glasses so that everyone has a pair. They need to live somewhere.
I had a piece of sanded pallet wood left from a previous project and some red drawer handles I'd not used - it was a bit of a quick cheat, but I simply used superglue to join the two! (I am usually better than this... but since sunglasses don't weigh a lot, I decided to go for the quick win today!) I then drilled two quick holes for hanging it on the wall. Make sure to leave the piece somewhere to dry flat... do not hang it until then or the pieces will all be on the floor when you come down in the morning! (Speaking from personal experience here...)
I then decided to brighten it up a bit with some paint, acrylic is my usual favourite for projects on wood. This is already proving handy and now I just need to find all the kids pairs of sunglasses... wherever they've hidden them.
