Sweetness! I went to an auction yesterday and was pretty happy with a couple of the things I brought home.
This table is quite sturdy and bonus! has a towel bar attached to it that I didn't even see when I bid on it. I know, so much for close inspection. :) Which is why I came home with this a few weeks ago. But, per your advice on that conundrum I am going to marry the cubbyhole piece to this table. So's the plan, anyway.
Biggest problem is where to put it and what color to paint it. If it were going in a potting shed, I'd leave it...hhmmmm....that is still an option. Just need the potting shed. :)
A big **SALute** goes out to the man who cut out these tin gallon cans to make his own drawers/bins. A woman could have made these, Rosie the Riveter comes to mind since they are full of rivets! I just love these cans.
I bought four of them and then had to let two go because the contents brought too much money. But, I knew the one regular auction goer who bought one of them and asked him if he'd sell me the container. He says, "You want the container?!" "You can just have it." I grinned big. The other fella who bought the sixth one...well, not too approachable.
These will probably end up in the barn at the work table doing just what they do best, holding screws, bolts, washers, etc.
The edges are a bit rough, but isn't the idea great? Do you think there would be any danger of a spark when you'd take a tin snip to these.? These gallon containers seem to be the ones filled with flammable contents. I think a person would want to really wash them out even before you started cutting. Then wash again. A grinder could sure smooth up the edges.
Now, what to do with all of these rivets?! I'm open to suggestions!
The farm's grain truck burned up last week just shortly after my husband parked it.I'll post a picture later this week of it. We are thanking God that it wasn't worse. Just the cab is gone and explosions were avoided!
