Remember the rack I found on the curb that I put new casters on? Here it is in its new home!
That is indeed a baseboard heater behind it. With the rack on wheels, it’ll be a snap to move it a safe distance away should the heat be needed. How perfect is that?
The freezer was originally in the way. But with no where to put that thing, the rack sat in front of the house for a short spell.
Until I gutted the laundry room and called over neighbour Jake to help me cart that thing inside the house.
THIS is just a thing of beauty! Where would I be without that find?! NOOOOO idea.
I may add one more shelf (somehow) at some point if it’s needed.
My glorious new rack is now the proud owner of all the little reclaimed wood cuts! So perfect!
These are from pallets and scraps of lumber that were getting lost in the red metal wood rack. Nicely organized by size, I’m ready to build!
That weird basket got put to work holding gloves and rags.
It sure looks clean and impressive, doesn’t it? Reveals always do. But it’s what you don’t see that I really think you should today.
Lest you think I’m too amazing to be real. Because now THAT would not be the truth.
(the other side is clean, I promise!)
This is a little temporary painting or parts table. It doesn’t take up much space, and is easy to move outside in a moment’s notice where I prefer to sand.
Pretty impressive, right?
Well… don’t get too excited.
There’s only one thing I gotta say about this.
A good friend of mine use to remind me to celebrate even the very small successes.
If someone in the shop learned to swing a new tool or achieve some kind of status in something or other, he’d halt the presses, (power tools) and go pick up our favourite fruit cake (platz) from the deli down the road.
Great idea! I’m going to stop organizing for a day, by celebrating the new workshop curbside storage rack and my ½ cleaned up workshop!
By building something fun to hold this roll of painting paper on…
…while munching on a platz of course. 🙂
