Taming the Tool Cart

I was puttering around the house last Saturday, when I heard my wife in the other room suddenly burst out, “That’s CUTE!” I assumed she found another pair of shoes or a purse on sale, or maybe one of those Cape Cod beach houses only a Kennedy could afford. But then she hurried in, gripping an old magazine (she keeps them for years– last week I found a Look magazine with Mamie Eisenhower on the cover).

“Isn’t that CUTE??!” she asked (rhetorically, I hoped), holding the mag open in my face. And there it was…

Tool Cart for the Home

In their June 2012 issue, Better Homes & Gardens featured the U.S. General 350 lb. Locking Drawer Tool Cart #90248 as an addition for a home organization project:

“A tool cart is a good home for bulky items, plus you can use it as a service station or bar.”

Not to mention that it’s a good-looking and affordable alternative to organizers at those shi-shi “home” stores. Here’s another great example where someone used it as a bar cart:

It’d probably make a dandy arts n’ crafts cart, too. I also noticed the tool cart’s on sale this month for just $74.99. A pretty good deal.

Huh… using a Harbor Freight tool cart for kitchen design, or a design idea for any room in the house. I get it.

And the wife got it.
