Remember my son? The one who refused to help me load this piece of junk in my truck?
Piece of JUNK?? It was a steal! Needs some work yes, but nothing I can't handle. I think. Read the full posting of Check out my knobbies, (biggest posting yet). A few have asked to prove him wrong. Well....last Saturday while he was visiting, he saw this....
.......little piece of beauty I am currently trying to finish. He was "WOW"ed! What does he say next? Lets go check out craigslist and kijji to see if we can find some good stuff. I would help you refinish some things. (bite my hand, he's got the bug). Guess what he convinces me to do? My son, the non-believer....
He convinces me to call and schedule a pick-up for this credenza. (bite my hand again) It is being given away for free, yes free. Imagine the possibilities. Best of all, was my son imagining the possibilities. (now I have to bite my FOOT) Go figure? Now ladies and gents I have seen what can be done to a fine piece of furniture with good bones, but my son ???? (btw he is only 15) has not and he can still see the potential. So I believe ...(pat on the back), I have brought one over to our side.
(bells and whistles)
HIP HIP HOORAY!
Here are some possibilities I have seen.

So I am off to pick-up my son, go have lunch and load another piece of junk (love our junk) in my truck.
P.S. I advised my other son (my 17 year old) where I will be when he gets back home, he states "Oh no, where the heck are you gonna put that junk!" Got some work to do on this son!
My words to inspire for today.
