One time I had this friend called Warrenton. Warry was a good old boy. On our honeymoon, he chugged his way down the whole Oregon Coast, down to California, through interior California and Oregon, and back up to Vancouver. Chug-a chug-a chug-a.
Look, we went to such fun places!
And did such fun things!
Also, chickens like Warry.
You also like Warry now, don’t you?
Now you’ll be sad to know that earlier this year, we finally made the difficult decision to sell him. There were a few reasons. Don’t make me talk about them. Mostly because he was getting older everyday, and we saw less and less of him in our future plans. I’m sorry, Warrenton.
Maybe you didn’t want to hear all about this friend you never had. I’ll get to the point now. We were so sad to see Warry go, so I made a this photo display to keep a part of him with us.
This project was cheap as sheet. I used shims glued onto a foam board I already had. Do you know shims? They are these cheap wood things that are shaped like door stoppers. I don’t know what they’re for, but I think they’re not for stopping doors.
I finished the photo display with some diluted acrylic paint and whitewashing. Do you know about whitewashing? Let me tell you about it over here.
After the paint, attach your precious memorabilia, and it’s all done! Now you can remember your special friends forever too.
