This fall my buddies at Carver Junk Company saw the wall I did at one of my neighbor’s house and wanted me to make one for their new store location in Minneapolis. It’s a fantastic spot near one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, Pepitos as well as Turtle Bread and some great clothing stores and special gift spots.
Let me tell you. I was so nervous! I said no in my head a dozen times. But then, Tom said, just do it and I’ll help. So, I told them I would do it.
They wanted it to be temporary so we put it on plywood. Plywood on plywood. I had to lay it out two boards at a time, and only attach some of the strips of boards, so that when it went up on the wall it looked like a continuous piece.
They put it up on the wall and then I came in and finished attaching the boards that didn’t get nailed in to the boards originally. There were some struggles getting the boards to fit properly after it was attached to the wall, but it all worked out great.
I’m just so happy with the way it turned out! Thanks to Carver Junk Company for trusting me to build that wall!
