Bizarre Fantasies!

Yes, I have totally bizarre fantasies. They involve built-in furniture and woodworking. I hate most store bought furniture. It is large, fluffy and never suits me. We usually have several shopping trips where we browse at many shops and then I come home not sure what I want, but sure I am not gonna find it in a furniture store. The purchases we have made are not things I love. So last night at the library, I was looking for a book on storage solutions. Instead I found all these books on do-it-yourself furniture, storage and garages. So I got about 7 of them. Today they are going back along with a crushed build-our-own furniture fantasy. The books start out with a recommendation for your workshop lay-out and where to put your $500,000 tools. We're just wanting a couple of pieces of well thought out furniture. I guess I'll keep shopping.

You know, I have the same dream (I'll not say fantasy . . . I have those too, but they don't involve woodworking!!!) If I could acquire one skill, it would be to build my own stuff, but I don't want to do it so badly that I'll actually learn how...which is why my bathroom is still "under construction" since 1995!

Yikes! Don't you just hate that? It all sounds so good until reality sets in. One day incubation period is pretty short for big dreams like that. Hope you find a better solution.
