. . . think outside the box!
Have you ever had an item that just wouldn't sell? Well, here is our boat anchor--quite literally, as these swim lockers (which I think are VERY cool) weigh a ton!
When I first found them, they wouldn't fit into our van and were too heavy for the top of the Jeep. So, we purchased a trailer (which we needed anyway) to pick them up and haul them to an antique show.
They did not sell.
So . . . we took them to Conway Antiques where (guess what?) . . . they did not sell.
So . . . we put them on Craig's List and found a buyer! Hooray . . . oops, buyer "disappeared."
Now, it's getting serious--these heavy lockers need to be dealt with. They're taking up too much room in the trailer, and the thought of lifting them again is overwhelming! Hmm . . . think outside of the box--TA DA!! Of course . . . take off the doors! Here is Daniel (my step-son) using power tools.
Turn convention on its side . . . voila, instant shelf unit!
So . . . I took the cool doors to an antique show, and guess what?
They didn't sell for $5.00 each.
I couldn't believe it . . . garden art anyone?
So . . . thinking outside of the box, once again . . . BOXES!!!
We don't have the boxes completed yet, but here are the stages unfolding . . . from "boat anchor" swim lockers, to doors removal, to languishing doors, to "do you think we could turn these into boxes"?
Stay tuned for the final result! NEVER GIVE UP!!!
