You may recognize this photo from my last post where I was definitely not discussing the regrettable lack of judgment that locked me in its grip one evening years ago, long enough for me to make a very unfortunate decision regarding paint color for this bookcase and then, sadly, to act on it.
As happens from time to time, an alert reader will be so kind as to look right past the embarrassing situation on display only to inquire about that thing in the corner of the frame of the photo.
In this case, that reader was Betsy of My Salvaged Treasures who politely asked not once but twice, “What the heck is the thing with the drawers?!”
Or something like that. J
This one’s for you, Betsy.

That thing is another rusty metal piece I found half a block away at a neighbor’s yard sale. Junky man-cave-workshop-assorted-bolts storage one minute ... glamorous vintage industrial the next!
Many of the drawers were filled with these tiny light bulbs -- hundreds of them. And I did what I always do when I don’t know what to do with something. I put them in my etsy shop.
Tomorrow morning I head out to this week’s yard sales, hoping for more of the same luck I had last week, some of which included this:
It feels like a minor miracle that a souvenir map vintage tablecloth can still be found for a quarter
Fingers are crossed in hopes of finding a little vintage Christmas this weekend.
Hope you find some great junk too.
