Look what I found!! About a month ago, I was at a meeting, we had a better than expected turn out so I went into the storage area to get chairs. Sitting alone in a corner was this beauty! Minus the Cat ~ who will not get off! I was giddy, I looked it all over (quickly) I was supposed to be getting chairs, and resolved to call the Facility Manager and ask if they were throwing him out. I decided it has to be a "guy" he weighs a ton and is SOLID wood.
Next morning I promptly called to speak with the Manager - let's condense the next month to phone calls about every other day, leaving messages, you get the idea.
Well, last night was the meeting again, in the middle of the meeting I get a note from the Building Manager! I can HAVE the cubbies, they were throwing them out, but if I want the old junkie thing I can have it. Meeting adjourned!! (Not really) but 2 long hours later I convinced two gentlemen to load him into my truck and I went straight home. My husband was not so thrilled with my find. I believe his exact words were "you've got to be kidding me??!!" NOPE!! Thank you Ms Funky Junk, I see the beauty in this ole guy!
What would you do with him?? The possibilities are endless and swirling in my head. In my closet for shoes, NO!!! I will not hide the yummi~ness in the closet. In the pantry for staples??? Hmmmmm . . . Don't you love all my "helpers" I literally was screaming at the Shepherd to "sit and stay" so I could take pictures, they love the flash!
|Maybe I'll put him under here for more storage in the Kitchen|
He will need a little TLC, a really good cleaning out and washing; then some sanding and painting; since his previous life was spent as a shoe rack in a bowling alley.
What would you do with him??? I'm open to suggestions!
And, as always . . . thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. I cherish the company!
