Today started like that. But… I don’t know what happened. I think when I stay on the computer too long… well, I’m on the computer too long.
So once I finally lifted my head and looked around…
I made myself wander to the planner, to see what I SHOULD be doing.
But it was buried.
And I couldn’t even find the calendar.
3 strikes already, and I was still in my pjs.
In better days, this coffee themed 2×4 and pipe phone station shelf looks like this.
But my collection of files has grown over the past little while, and I knew storing them elsewhere would not work. This is where I need the info, and it’s where I know I will dump them again.
That’s when enough is enough, and a total reset in a given area was in order.
By reset, I gut everything except the main components.
Then, add stuff to hopefully solve the problem.
And probably 100 other places. This guy gets around!
But today, I felt it could become a good file holder.
Except for that stubborn screw inside. I couldn’t quickly find my drill, so I tried to shake it out, but no go.
And that’s when the pest became a perk.
Turns out, when the toolbox was placed behind the shelf on the window sill, the screw kept the files bottoms from slipping forward, when inserting them behind the branch.
So, I added a friend.
We’ll I’ll be… it worked great!
This toolbox has really low sides, so a back support is needed. (like my window, or this patio rail)
But I could certainly see if a taller back was mounted, it would be PERFECT on its own.
I may have to make one from scratch to prove my point. To myself.
This little toolbox file holder is going to come in mighty handy when I wish to tote all these files to my outdoor patio farm table office!
But better yet…
Today became a pie in the sky day after all!
Well… for now, anyway.
Here’s a toolbox made from shutters that works well for this too! Also shown illuminated for Christmas.
