Rack 'Em Up! The Magazines That Is. Or A Small Amount Of Fire Wood...Which Is What I'll Probably Use This For. Status: Heh heh...I Said "Wood".
Remember a few weeks ago when I brought home a set of Basset cabinets? I found those because Illuminate had texted me about a Mod garage sale that she hit after the Big Brasilia estate sale. Well, I picked this little magazine / firewood rack at that garage sale.
I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be for magazines but it's the perfect size for a fireplace size
pile of wood! Plus, I've already got lots of magazine racks and places to spread them out
otherwise. I don't need no other magazine racks! I Do need to go get some cut (and split
probably) wood though!
We just had our first fire of the season and it was lovely. We both really do enjoy a nice
fire but it does screw with the temperature in the rest of the house. The Lily Pad (just like
the Focus wagon, the house got a name...Lily) has radiant heat in the floor. It's great but
not super responsive and unfortunately the thermostat is about 6 feet away from the fireplace.
This means that when we have a fire the rest of the house gets cold because the room with
the thermostat gets nice and toasty. After the fire, when we go to bed, the floor has cooled
for hours and it takes a little while for them to heat back up! We need to move that
thermostat, don't we. Fires are too nice to avoid because of something stupid like this!
Oh yeah, the rack...forgot about the rack! Uh...it's made of steel and uhm...it has some wire
hoops. It goes nicely with my new fireplace tools! It goes really nicely with the Bertoia chairs
but even more nicely with the Tony Paul chairs. Oh...I've never done a piece on the Tony Paul
chairs...maybe tomorrow. We'll see.
