it has sat on the floor in a corner in the craft room ever since (i had wiped it down and scraped off the bubbled up paint and replaced the knobs with some cute green ones i had sitting around)...but it was just too low to the ground to be functional and way too heavy to hang on the wall...so a couple weeks ago when i started the great craft room clear out i came up with a brilliant idea ~ make some sort of stand to raise it up...enter, the husband...exit with this:
a totally functional 'whatchamacallit'
here is the stand that the husband crafted from scrap wood and pre fab legs from homedepot...if you click on the picture you can notice several things: how crackled the original black paint is, how horrific the hinges are and see how it fits on the new stand...it now stands about a foot taller than it was just sitting on the floor:
what am i storing inside? there are clues sitting on top:
answer: sewing supplies
i left the original 'no smoking' sign that was in the cabinet when we found it...cause 'no smoking' is just a good rule...
the little drawer on top houses those bias tape makers i keep losing and rotary cutters
so there you have it, my new totally functional 'whatchamacallit'...and thanks to the husband i now love it...
one final note...how sad is it that thread no longer comes on wood spools?
does everything have to be plastic??? plastic, oh how i abhor thee...
