My new workbench "Pretty in Pink" (vintage pink!)May 1st, 2010 in blog
OK - not your typical post, but I just had to share the "newest" addition to my basement workspace - a perfectly vintage-y pink workbench. I got it at a tag sale (just $20 - woo hoo), and with the help of my very understanding husband, we carted it down to the basement and I proceeded to tear my little area to bits to reorganize and make room for my prize! You definitely have to make a mess to organize things, right???
It had been in a local optician's workroom (in the 60s) and then moved to a basement where it was used by a teenaged "Mr. fix-it" for projects in the 80s. As soon as I saw it - it was mine (one of those" love at first sight" kind of moments - ha ha - not to mention it was SCREAMING my name),- there it was...six feet of well used, well aged work/creative space, and the fabulous vintage pink was just a bonus (it was just a "little" heavy - so I knew I'd have to sweet talk my hubby on this one - he should be used to that, right?)!
Anyway...no more gushing - here are some pics - and you'll see why I LOVE it so much! You know us junkers (I have to include you guys too...I know I'm not alone - which is one of the reasons I love JMS and our members so much) - we can't pass up GREAT junk - and if it's functional, that definitely helps rationalize buying just "one more thing"!
The last picture is a little something that my favorite rustydiva sent me - my next post will show you what I made (at my new workbench...see, I knew it would come in handy!).
Have a great junking weekend! Now I've got to start packing for Art & Architecture JUNKMARKET Style in Minneapolis (and that's always a challenge for me - I don't "pack light" well...).
TIME to go! Kathy
