shelves ~

Mick sent me a picture last week of some really cool shelves that he thought would be a good addition to the shop.  When I saw the picture, I just about fell off my chair!  


Not only were they huge and PERFECT for display in the shop, they offered me tons of extra storage.  And they came from a local university, so rescuing them from the dump was an additional bonus.

The boys picked them up on Saturday and wrestled them into the shop that evening.  And then me and my razor blade got busy scraping what seemed like a thousand stickers from the drawers.  I am an unusually impatient person, so I think I was running on pure adrenaline as I just scraped and scraped and never took a break.  

The labels said things like "embryos" and "medical slides" so the shelves obviously came from the Science department.

But now they are filled with all sorts of shabby lovelies for the home!

A whole new lease on life for them!  

I am so incredibly thankful for my husband and his friend Jeff who managed to get these moved into the shop for me.  They look like they belonged here!
