I needed something to keep me busy as Ezra prepared to leave for China. So, last Saturday I suggested to Ed that we go antiquing. I was looking for shelves or a cupboard for my sewing room. I wanted to be able to see my fabric stash instead of having to rummage through drawers. We found an old beat-up "garden shelf". It was very rough and looked like it had been outside on a porch. But, it was exactly the right size.
So, I brought it home, cleaned it up, and painted it...white inside and light green outside. It's made of oak and is very heavy. My three men grunted and groaned quite a bit while carrying it up to the sewing room. It's just what I needed.
