Bench Monday, an homage to Papa. Once upon a time, this was my grandfather's very simple plywood tool chest from his years in the textile mills. He gave it to me when I got my first apartment, and it served as my coffee table/yarn/book storage for a really long time. Yes, my entire stash plus all my tools once fit in this wee trunk. Only some of you will understand how hysterical that is. When we moved here, it was slated for a bit of a rehab (thus the upholstery job on the top and the wood filler everywhere), but then it accidentally sat directly on the floor in our basement through a couple of floods w/o us realizing that it wasn't elevated like most of our stuff. Fast forward two years and it's molded, rusted, and warped beyond repair. It breaks my heart to do it, but it has to go - but not before it gets its day in sun on Bench Monday.
