Carted and Shelved

The professor has been nosing around at Surplus Property again... he's good at that. Always armed with an eye for turning trash into treasure, he stops by every few weeks to peruse the university's latest batch of "surplus." His most recent finds are two rolling, vintage book carts that were discarded by the main library on campus.

Constructed of sturdy oak boards, these work horses are strong with plenty of mileage left in them. {Literally!} Someday I would love to use them in a more visually noticeable way but for now they're the perfect solution to our need for additional shelving in two of the bedroom closets. Costing only $10 each, they were less expensive than Closetmaid... and "installation" was a breeze!
