I know what it is. I just want to know what you'd call it.
The tag says it's a pool rack. And the thrift shop guy who sold it to me asked if we had a pool table. And now I'm kind of confused about the whole thing because I thought I knew what pool racks and gun racks looked like.
A few weeks ago, I was playing around on Pinterest and found this project.
Wouldn't that be perfect for displaying interesting scraps while I figure out what to do with them? Just one problem... to make it I need a gun rack. I know that Hubby had one like it when we were first married, but that was five moves and almost twenty-five years ago. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw it, but it was before any of the kids were born.
If I asked him about it, I'd have to explain what I wanted it for. And he probably wouldn't know what became of it. It might be in the barn, but the odds are probably slim to none. (When we were moving into this house and I was in the hospital on bed rest with our youngest, Hubby left a quickly packed utility trailer full of our stuff in the barn. Someone noticed our absence and helped themselves, so there's still a lot of stuff that might be in a box in the barn, or might have left with them. I'm still trying to account for a dresser.)
If Grandma was still alive, she'd have known exactly what I was looking for and found one dirt cheap within the week. Because she had fairy godmother powers like that.
But I was on my own, without much time to put into the search. Maybe the fairy godmother thing is rubbing off a bit because it wasn't long before I found this one at a local thrift shop for two bucks. That's definitely a better deal than an afternoon crawling around in the barn and attic. Now I'm on the lookout for some cheap dowels.
Since I bought this one, I've seen two more beat up versions, both labeled "Gun Rack" and both priced at twelve bucks.
