Maybe a Shelfish Sunday….

I probably should be doing something more useful, but this is a job that has been sitting around for a while…. It wasn’t even a hard job, Just putting a shelf in the bottom of the industrial typewriter stand I restored a while ago…

Handy table, but definitely a bit of wasted space down the bottom… and the one thing we don’t like in the house is lazy furniture, sitting around not working to its full potential 😉

A metal tray from an another table I bought a while back, the sides from an old drawer and some paint…

Tray painted black and attached to the stand with double sided tape…. Because sometimes double sided tape works better than drilling new holes in things I may want to remove or change later….

Drawer sides cut to size, sanded and waxed and inserted into metal tray….

And now have somewhere for the home phone…. I never use the landline, but it is handy for the kids to know where it is an how to use it……

    I love what you did with your typewriter table. I have one that I just inherited from work:

    I’m still debating what to do with mine. I don’t want to take away from the awesomeness of it all!

    Grey is the one colour that I never leave anything… This was grey… have you considered a 50s mint colour?
