Damn that Craig’s List!
Did I need anything?
Do I ever?
Well, sometimes. And you never know what’s there unless you look.
This was there. It’s a goofy little project holder thing.
A little worse for wear but cute anyway.
It opens up.
And is already overflowing with unfinished projects.
This one I thought was the real find.
|The front opens like a garage door.|
Cute right? When I got it home I realized that I was wrong.
It’s all kinds of falling apart and loose.
I should have looked closer before I threw it in the car but I already loved it.
I glued and clamped the part that was just straight out broken right away.
But it’s loose here and there and everywhere.
Does anyone know if its actually worth anything? I suspect it isn’t.
Inspired by this book, I am picturing wiring or wrapping the loose and broken parts together with colorful wire or twine and keeping them wrapped.
|That’s pretty cool looking, I think.|
That’s assuming that it isn’t actually a good piece. I don’t know how to really tell. I googled around a bit and didn’t find anything exactly like it. If it’s a good piece of furniture, I’d hate to do something to lower it’s value.
In any case. I paid $35 for both. At first, in my head, I thought of it as $10 for the top piece and $25 for the table. Once I got it home and got to know it better, it made me happier to think it was more of a $15 and $20 cut. I can’t be happy if I think the top one cost me $20 because that’s what they were asking.
Any leads on where to find a value for it?
