Got the last 2 shelves varnished and installed today. Then I had to pick up some metal bins at my booth at Winnie & Tulula's. I went crazy with the little felt shelf protectors. I buy these by the case :)

Now you all know how I'm gonna handle the "dust" issue. All dishes and linens are inside boxes and bins. I just love this old banana box I picked up at the last Gresham Barn Sale. She still has a few left.

I've been asked it the metal I used is sturdy. It is a mid gauge steel, so yes it's plenty sturdy. You can buy all the parts for this project at Home Depot or Lowe's. I had to learn how to cut and drill metal for this project. Not difficult if you have the right tools. Mr Roboto comes in handy when it comes to having the right tools.

Everything back in it's place. I think I need some new (or old) chairs. Isn't that how it usually goes. Change one thing and then something else needs a change. Oh well, this is IT for now.

Happy Halloween, Hope you enjoy my Halloween playlist.
