A 77” steel office credenza that we bought at auction for $12. Seemed like the perfect solution to my desire (JR would say need) for more storage space. Wheels are turning, thinking a nice long cut-out counter on top of this thing and I’ll be all set.
Until we got it home and couldn’t lift this tonnage up the stairs as is.
So, my dear patient husband took it apart.
And we somehow, the two of us, with a hand cart, got it upstairs without breaking picture glass, destroying chandeliers or denting walls. Neither of us sustained injury. I may have wet my pants when lifting.
And then, my dear patient husband put it back together,
(and also notice that on that little ironing board is a peplum top (one of two) that I’ll be showing off in the next day or so.)
This weekend, at an estate sale, I bought a Kenmore sewing machine that is almost as heavy as that steel credenza, perfectly clean, and in perfect working condition.
This thing is a work horse.
I am so happy to have it a part of my sewing arsenal!
