Can We Fix It?

 Yes, we can. This morning I found two six cube storage shelves at Goodwill. They were wobbly but for 3.99 each, I thought I'd take the chance and try to fix them.

Unfortunately,  it wasn't as easy as tightening some screws. I looked online to see if there was a solution. I saw a reddit post where someone stated most people do not nail the back on these which is important to it's stability.

I was lucky enough to find two pieces of paneling that fit perfectly on the bottom half. It worked.

Upcycling a Media Center

 My son doesn't have a closet in his room so I decided to make him one. Well, actually a wardrobe. I found a media center for 9.99 at Goodwill. It had a couple of scratches but otherwise in good condition. My husband had a closet rod, cut it down to fit and screwed it in place. I forgot to take a photo beforehand.

The next day, I found drawers that I thought would fit perfectly in the bottom. Unfortunately,  I did not include the handles when measuring so the media center doors would not close. I ended up taking them off. This is the final project.

Check Mate

 I found this oversized chess board at Goodwill yesterday. It's 32" x 32". When I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for the coffee table base I had.

It came with a box of Avon bottle chess pieces.

 Meet YArt (yard art) the whale. I found him at Goodwill this morning hanging out in the furniture department.

At first, I thought he was one of those springy playground ride on toys missing the seat. I messaged one of my friends and he said it looked homemade. I then decided he must be yard art. I went and got a cart, paid for him and took him home.

My husband said he is made from a motorcycle gas tank, fly wheel and used welding rods. He's currently hanging out in my yard. (YArt, not my husband)

Fake or Real

 Yesterday,  I bought a Coach purse from Goodwill. Usually,  I'm fairly good at spotting a fake but this one has me stumped. The stitching is on point, the hardware is heavy and tight, the material is nice and it has the creed patch. However, the C pattern doesn't look neatly aligned and it is missing the horse and buggy logo. It is from a factory outlet so I'm not sure if that is why?
