I've been plowing through garages sheds barns basement attics tunnels and piles of junk since I was a young kid.

It's one of those things I've always loved doing.
I can't say I've ever found anything of great value but that's certainly not to say I've never been rewarded for my efforts.

I don't have much time to do those things these days but I'm very lucky to have friends who do.
A good friend of mine dug this gem out of a junk pile he saw on the side of the road.

He said he had to do a little digging and pulling because it was down in the pile aways
But this is one of those pieces I'd have dug all the way to China for if necessary.

Some of the younger members may not know what this piece is or what's it's purpose was but if your of my generation you'll know exactly what this is,what it was used for and where you've seen these forever.

There was a time where you couldn't go to the gas station without seeing these standing between the gas pumps .
You would find oil,trans fluid,washer fluid and other things you might need when you pulled up to the pumps.

This is a super handy cart for me.
I use it as my masking station.
It's big enough to hold everything I need to tape up and mask off anything I'm going to paint.

I used a simple dowel rod to make a dispenser that rolls out masking paper.
Butcher wrap on a roll works excellent for covering anything you don't want overspray getting on.

The best thing about this cart is it's large enough to hold everything I need to do a complete paint job on anything.

It holds my paint,reducer,lacquer thinner,paint mixing cups,paper masks,paint brushes ,rolls of masking tape,box cutters,ect

Repurpose and reuse.
Save the landfill space !!

    You are a real McGuyver. Bet I misspelled the name, this is a wonderful re-purpose!
