    If you'd be willing to proxy or trade hit me up with sizes. I've been trying to find this exact coat for a friend.

    NOT THRIFT RELATED.

    Well, I guess we bought our first house with no money down, and that allowed us to buy this next house. So maybe?

    This house has a "breakfast nook" that we will be turning into a "pantry." Other than stripping the wall paper and painting it a new color (along with the putrid kitchen walls), any ideas for crazy storage things we can do along the window-less wall?

    Went out for a couple of hours today and hit a few shops. Did quite well, pics to come.

    Does anyone recognise this label? I came across a cord jacket with contrast collar and some interesting details with the same label. Didn't pick it up but might go back for it. Couldn't take a photo annoyingly as my phone was out of battery.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    There's a lot of the leather that doesn't sell well too.

    Man I really like this system. Perfect for a larger pantry like that.

    Or, install a counter and put your lesser-used appliances there. They'd be ready to go instead of in a box, but out of the main kitchen gathering dust.

    Grandmother had an antique shop and gave me this long ago. Google image search really would have really helped here.

    Daddy Nak I picked this up at a garage sale in Minnesota when I was a kid. Doesn't even fit now that I'm long since grown up.

    Fozzie Bear's cousin. Can't find a content label and care tag is so faded it's barely readable. Any ideas what this is?

    My former house was built in 1929 and it had a breakfast nook. But, it was right next to the kitchen so we took down the wall and had new cabinets built and added a new countertop that extended into the former nook. We added about 40% square footage. Based on this picture, it does not look like this is right next the kitchen.

    Are you wanting to make it a kitchen pantry? or just a closet for storage.

    You could make it a small reading area? It looks like a difficult room to use.

    Congratulations! I am assuming that the photo is taken from the kitchen? As in the small room photographed is across from the kitchen? If you are planning on using it as a pantry, would you put doors on it? It would be a bit of a shame to close it off entirely as it has two windows' worth of natural light. What's behind the windowless wall? Any chance of knocking it out? Could you run plumbing to it? Just throwing out ideas! If storage is a must, I'm sure there are a number of creative solutions.

    More Closet Talk

    That is a great video and looks like a fantastic plan for using the closet. But, I have none of those woodworking tools like that guy does. Once I got them and the garage to do it, I might as well just buy a new house! [​IMG]


    Cedar closet question:

    Has anyone ever installed cedar in a closet for storage. My wife and I share a large walk in closet and I was thinking of putting up cedar. I have been to so many estate sales where gorgeous expensive clothes were ruined by holes from Moths. Sometimes in the summer when I let the dog outside, a moth will fly into the house and then I have get all commando to track it down so it doesn't destroy our clothes or my inventory. I have some of those cedar blocks that hang on the rods in the closet. But, I'm always paranoid that I still have moths and they are just nibbling holes in my suits. I have seen some of the videos on using cedar planking. But, I have also seen closets with what looks like Cedar chipboard/waferboard.

    Found this old tie today. Does anyone know:
    a) who made this?
    b) what is the small gold clip on the bottom of the tie?[​IMG]
