Pick a Project

My garage cabinets runneth over with good intentions.  During my reorganization mission a
few months ago, I sorted through most of the little treasures stored in my garage cabinets, boxes, and drawers.  It was fun getting reacquainted with everything and it sure felt good to get organized, but now some of it just needs to go.

This metal box full of small unfinished projects will be coming with me to the Pleasanton Antique Faire on Sunday.  I've been pretty good about fixing up or repurposing the majority of the junk that I bring home, but it's crazy how the little stuff just keeps multiplying. There's a lot more where this came from, so I'll save the next box for the next show.

How long is too long for something to sit around waiting for inspiration to hit?  I need a fresh start.

I had good intentions, really I did.  Oops, that Lufkin tape measure ended up in the wrong box.

Those funny looking wood pieces on the left and right were once part of an old bed frame.  I already turned the two decorative center supports into shelves, but these have me stumped no matter which way I look at them.  It's time to clear my mind and my cabinets of the junk that just isn't happening.  Not everything needs a new purpose, some junk is cool enough just the way it is, right?

Two projects have been pulled from the box so far.  I decided the rusty orange box and the funnel didn't need to be fancied up, they just needed to be planted.  The funnel already had a hook on it, so I attached it to the old piece of molding with a cup hook.  I'll probably get so many good ideas about what I should do with this junk and everything will end up back in my garage.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.
