*This is my very first Crafty Geordi post. Although I have written more than 100 posts since this one, this project remains my favorite and most used. Thanks for visiting* Christine 01.01.2011
We have all had items in our possession that needed to go into the trash. Many of us put these items into the trash where they go. Then there others.
My boyfriend, the cute, kind, generous man that he is, is a pack rat in a bad way. He hates to throw things away that might have some life left. Yay me! He would laugh when I spent time “shopping” in his backyard. But, I have scored some cool things that did indeed have some life left in them. These items just needed some major resuscitation.
One of these items was an old tool cart that had a rotted shelf on top and an air compressor on top. It was an eyesore and I begged him to get rid of it. I am so glad he didn’t! When I moved into my new house, I decided that I needed to add a small kitchen island. I looked at plans to build my own and I shopped for cheap stock kitchen cabinets. Then, I remembered the old eyesore! I snagged it and transformed it into something really great that gets so much use now.
