What Is This?

April 19th, 2020 at 01:51 pm

I have been calling this a plant stand/wine rack, but I really don't know. Does anyone know what this is? It doesn't have the curved cutouts you would expect on a wine rack. It is too lightweight to handle a plant. What is it? Is this why it was in the alley?

Anyway, it looks better in blue. I'm going to take it back to storage and figure out what to do with it later.

In addition to painting this piece, I painted the top of my dresser. The top was scarred and overall in bad shape. The new color blends in well.

I made some macaroni salad yesterday, using dressing that needed to be used up. I also made brownies, but I overbaked them. They are not burned, just hard. Oh well, I will eat them. Too many good ingredients went into them to waste them. I wish I had some ice cream to kind of soften them up, but I don't.

Other than that, I didn't do a lot. Today I'm going to do a load of laundry, and then tomorrow I will go out and get quarters so I can do more laundry in the future. I think I can make it real quick at the bank -- wearing a mask, of course.

    It looks like it could use three more boards, tiles or glass to make a shelf, which could hold nearly anything.

    As for what it used to be, I don't now. However, I think if you put in small pieces of plywood, you could put lighter weight books, like paperbacks, and other small items. One idea is you could put it in a bathroom and store toilet paper, bath towels, etc.

    Who would have thought we'd be going to the bank wearing a mask? LOL

    Cute shelf unit. I like crazylibrarylady's idea of using it for tp, towels, etc. or stuff like that. You do a nice job painting.

    I inherited something that shape from my mother with glass shelves.( not antique) Maybe for bathroom towels or?

    I think I trashpicked a shelf like that in my first apartment. It had 2 out of three ceramic tiles for the shelves. I wonder if tiles would fit yours; it would be cute to go with your new blue color.

    I think it is an old fashioned telephone stand. The kind that was not attached to the wall and had a rotary dial. I think the shelves are decorative not useful.

    My BFF said she thought the shelves originally held wire baskets and it's a whatnot shelf.
    Whatever it is, I will probably pass it on to someone else, as I don't have any open space in my tiny condo! It would be a cute bathroom shelf, but my bathroom is super small.

    Here's a wine rack that looks kind of like that.
