(I am not sure if this is "reconstructed" or not. It is . . . embellished I suppose)
For my day job, I work at a school, and this past weekend they wanted to clean out the storage sheds full of old classroom furniture, so they sent an email to the faculty and staff that if you wanted anything just come and get it for FREE! So of course I was all on that. Boyfriend and I borrowed his dad's truck and we got some file cabinets, a few tables, some other boring stuff, and this awesome cubby organizer! With THIRTY cubbies! And then Hobby Lobby was having a sale on craft storage boxes, and Michaels had a pack of Amy Butler scrapbook paper I really liked. I cut the paper for the fronts and attached it with photo corners, just in case I one day decide to change the color scheme (which I probably will, knowing me)
Right now the only place for it is next to my desk and blocking the window, but the only person who ever uses that window is my cat and he's fine with sitting on top of the cubbies. Now I have storage for all my Etsy store inventory and supplies, and even a few empty boxes just waiting for me to make more stuff! Yay!
Should I feel guilty that I'm more excited about this piece of furniture than I was when my nephew was born?
