  • Today, I spied and old dresser in the street for free.  Oh, it was half rotten, but it had pull ring handles.  So, I unscrewed them and brought them home.  And a great idea came to me.  I have a plain wood panel at my kitchen sink and my bathroom sinks.  I had my husband drill me holes, two on my kitchen panel.  He gave me a very small short stubbed screw driver.  Wow!  I love it, because I put a crocheted tea towel w/button through the ring.  I can dry my hands with it or flip it up to keep my shirt dry, from getting wet when I wash dishes or clean vegtables at the sink.

    I am ready to put a pull ring handle in my one bathroom that has no place for a dry bowl and now I will!

  • I love finds like that. I have a fine rocking chair and porch chair I found curbside.

    I took one of my old kitchen cabinets off the wall to make room for a fridge and turned it upside down and made it into a desk. God is good.


    Sincerely,

    Shin

  • My husband took a free end table with drawers and put a saw on top and rollers at the bottom of the table.  Another time my husband said, "I need a work table I can move."  I said "take yours out and add rollers and he did.  Another time husband was sweating it out, trying to remove a sage brush.  I said, you need a horse.  I asked, do you have chains?  So, husband attached chains to the frame of our car and to the bush and with a couple pulls, it was out!!

    My husband is retired and he bought and stored so many things: old yard sticks, palates of wood and old rolling pins, and knobs.  He cut a flat back to the rolling pin, and attached to porcelain knobs for ladies to hang on wall in kitchen.  He learnt how to mod podge black lettering on wood crafts.  He has the laser printer and made the words backwards and applied. 

    He is getting crafty.  Birdhouses and such.  We go to "Pinterest" for ideas.  Wow! that is some site to see!  I like things made or decorated with buttons and I told my husband to collect and make things with spools from thread.   Have Fun!

  • I'm not what this has to do with health!  If you're not picky, you can furnish a NYC apartment in a week for free, just drive around early on garbage pick-up day.
