"It ain't what you got, it's what you make." —Shovels & Rope
In my former life (as in a month ago), I had an unusual fear of hardware stores. Meaning they intimidate me. Big time. Make something with food? No problem. Create a handcrafted greeting card? Easy. Sew a quilt. Done. But a trip to the hardware store? Noooo!
With several deep breaths I told myself I CAN DO THIS.
After scoring a $5 vintage cart at a yard sale I trucked off to the hardware store and explained my project to the sales associate. They offered a few tips (e.g., steel wool for removing rust) and pointed me towards the needed items. Supplies cost an additional $25 and with a little work I ended up with not only a new cart (Yay!), I discovered a new-found confidence that has turned into a domino effect.
