This afternoon, after Lisa dropped me back at my car—I ran errands like a crazy woman! But what’s a girl to do when she is parked in front of Sam’s club? And Lowes and Home Depot and Target and the bank and Walmart are in close proximity?
I don’t often go to that side of town – so it was like discovering a whole new place!
What was I searching for?
Plastic stackable drawers! It has been so long since I have bought any – who would think that just like everything else they would not only change style, but SIZE and stackability?! Why do they have to do that? I didn’t want them in colors? I didn’t want funky textures on the front of them…I didn’t want the plastic to have glitter sparkles in it..I just wanted STORAGE that matched my other storage. HA!
The two columns on the right are the drawers I already had for FQs. They have a deeper profile, but are the SAME SIZE as the two columns of drawers on the right, which are wider, but not as deep. AND…I couldn’t find them in individual stacking drawers so I could stack them as high as I want to match the others. I like the individual ones best because they support more weight than the frame for the 3 drawer cart will. I can’t stack the 3 drawer cart double tall, because the weight in full drawers is too much. I left the wheels off because I don’t plan on wheeling these anywhere.
I could return the farthest left cart – turns out I didn’t need it- YET! But I still have some rearranging to do and I might find it useful for something else. Maybe UFOs or something.
But I do know one thing for sure – I’m running out of wall space down here. I’ve moved book cases and treadle machines around, every wall is lined with SOMETHING quilty! And there is more furniture down here because of the re-roofing/re-sheetrocking of the sun room going on.
In my mind, I know that I should be getting LESS stuff, not MORE stuff – but my creativity revolves around having lots on hand to choose from, and I can’t work in a sterile minimal environment. I just can’t. So be it!
One of the things I unearthed was THIS:
This was tucked into a remnant bundle from a shop in Bay City Michigan….I never unpacked the bundle until yesterday! It’s actually a double panel, depicting Civil War Generals. There are TWO of these identical to each other. I know I will never do anything with this….so any takers?
I’ll cut the two panels apart and offer them to two people! Leave me a comment below telling me just what plans you have for it and why you want it! I’ll draw two winners Wednesday morning before leaving for Alabama –I’ll pack the envelopes in my stuff, and mail them from the road. Fun idea, huh?
Let’s see what else I can get rid of around here!
