I had collected a stack of useless scrap wood to toss out. For some reason, I took a second look at a large-ish piece of pine with oddball dimensions and a lot of imperfections and dings, and out of the blue came a connection! Some wood putty, lots of sanding, a bit of trim and a few coats of honey pine polyurethane, and viola!

A perfect fit and an excuse to do a bit more decor tweaking.

eek Somebody stop me before I redecorate again! grin
