Thinking of Grandpa (Plus a GIVEAWAY!)

I'm one of the lucky few who grew up with both my grandfathers alive. They both have been so influential in my life, but today I'm thinking of my Grandpa Huish.

Look at what a stud he was! That's him with my mom as a little girl.

 

Grandpa was talented at so many things! He spoke Spanish fluently, was an inspiring educator and community leader, and could polish off a quart of ice cream faster than anyone I've met. Like me, he was also a DIYer.

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I had recently picked up some furniture from a friend cleaning out his investment property. The first piece to get a make-over was the Computer Armoire with a Twist.

How to Turn Almost Any Wheel Into a Caster


I've said it before and I'll say it again; casters are expensive! Seriously. And if you want vintage metal casters, you may have to take out a second mortgage.

Computer Armoire With a Twist


A good friend of mine from high school called me a few weeks ago. He told me that he had just bought an investment property in my neighborhood, and that it was full of stuff from the last resident. Then he made me an offer I couldn't refuse. He needed to clean out the house, I need to pack my garage full of junky old furniture. It was a win-win situation.
