It started out all pretty like… oh, we’ll stack this old wooden crate on top of that chippy medical cabinet. That fits nice. Let’s tie it down and hit the road. Oh! More junk? Sure that will fit in that little hole and those galvanized tubs can go in that little nook. Tie it down and head out. A barn door here. A potting bench there. A chippy ‘ol bench… okay… now this is getting messy! And yet, all we could do was smile as we were pickin’ Pennsylvania!
It wasn’t long before we were really wishin’ that box truck we had lined up had come through. But alas, we were workin’ with a Dodge Ram 1500 and by golly, we were gonna stack that thing as high as it would hold!! We may or may not have come upon a bridge with 10 foot clearance and pulled over to judge the height of our load!!! Ha ha!! So, when we stopped to fill up for gas, I couldn’t help but have a little fun…
So, why am I sharing our little Sanford and Son escapade??! Well, because it’s all in the shop for Rusted Roots June 17-18 sale!! We’re talking handmade heaven from old tobacco laths, to German shiplap, to barn wood… shelves, chairs, shutters, hooks, boxes, need I go on??
