So when the floor guys were taking the spindles out, I told them to save them back for me instead of throwing them out (I'm sure they think I'm a packrat by now since I told them to save the leftover wood planks, too). I had one idea in mind, but that would only require a few spindles. I really want to redo my island, so I'm hoping to board and batten it with split spindles as the frame on either side. You'll see...trust me. ;)
It was super easy, too. All I did was use the circular saw to split it down the middle, sand it, paint it, and nail it to the door. (I thought about gluing it so that you couldn't see nail holes, but I thought that would be too permanent.)
Anyway, I love it. This will not be the last of the spindles that you see on this blog!
P.S. If you're in the DFW area and want some spindles, give me a holler! I have a boat load of them and will likely be throwing out what doesn't get used in the next few months.
