    Ok, so today the race track came down and we used the wood from the track table to make a shelving unit. Now I need to figure out the best way to use the space.
    I saved money on a shelving unit by recycling the wood, saved about $40 and got a bigger unit.

    the shelving unit made from the race track table.

    Great recycling! Wish more folks would do that!

    You are off to a great start, aren't you?

    Looks very nice. I need to get my room picked up also. Recycling your wood was a great idea and now you have a very nice shelving unit, something you didn't have before. Did you make the shelving unit yourself?

    That's going to be great. What a wonderful use of the wood.

    No, are you kidding me, I'd take a finger off or something. My ex came over and made it for me and I helped him.
    I had a roll of clear shelf paper and lined the shelves, so I got a whole completed shelving unit and I didn't have to go buy a thing. Whaoo.

    I would have done the exact same thing with the shelves, use the regular kitchen shelf paper. Not only will it give you a smooth surface, it adds a little color to your room. Oh and you have a very nice ex!

    it'll also keep the fabric off the wood.

    I had clear so I used it for now and later I will look for something more colorful.
    Yes my ex is a great guy, he was my friend for 7 years before we got married (8years married) and he is my friend again now for the last 9 years. I have a very understanding hubby and I am glad he is ok with our friendship.
