Oh my friends… what a weekend I have just come from!
My venture to Toronto has come to a close. I will admit, I’m a little overwhelmed in a good way from all that transpired, so I need to sit on all that for a bit before I can start to tell some stories. Just know? It was amazing. Every last second of it. So much more soon!
So I just got in last night, and woke up today hitting the ground running. There’s a project reveal due for next week, so I wasted no time because THIS weekend I’m taking off yet again. My son is going to camp and I found a sweet little cabin in the woods kinda getaway to stay at during that time. (you know I will share that!) So coming soon, junkin’ in a new town!
But I was kinda feeling blah about not having a junk blog post for this week.
So heading to the hardware store, I was wishing I could maybe find something cool on the road, but scoffed at what a longshot THAT was.
(screeeeeeeeeech!!!!!! that 4-letter word gets me every time)
I mean, I don’t even have room for one. more. thing. Lots from the Crafty Affaire followed me home and my basement did not empty like I had hoped. I have LOTS to pick from and so much I haven’t even shown you. It’s kinda like Christmas morning in the basement!
Trust me. I don’t need a thing. But…
… I dunno. It’s kinda like when you go shopping and wish you could come home with something new anyway. Just for the fun of it. To trigger fresh inspiration maybe.
LONGSHOT. There is never anything on our roads.
And so as I moseyed on home after the hardware pickup, a deep sigh led me to realizing that I should just be happy with what I have. Go unpack a box (or 30) and just start tinkering on… something.
This black metal rack just had to come home. But the casters were all broken, so I made sure I picked up some new casters at the hardware as well.
And because orange isn’t my choice of wood tone, the plywood was flipped upside down. Now we’re talkin’!
And a few other little choice items came home from that pile too.
After I measured, the rack was too large for any regular doorway. Oops.
Which leaves the garage.
No harm in that! This thing will help me further organize my dream workshop!
As soon as I remove the freezer first.
In which there is also no room to relocate.
Ah well. Nothing like tearing another room apart just for this new monstrosity I apparently desperately needed.
And until all that transpires, I decked out the desperately needed, newly castered fabulous black metal rack with dried hydrangeas, for my neighbours’ viewing pleasure.
Right after I cleaned up my (hoard) piles before I left.
I’d bet they are SOOO glad to see me home again…

Would you have brought this thing home? What would you use it for?
