Unobtainable love

I searched my brain for uncluttering and Valentine’s Day tie-ins and couldn’t really find any. “Love and honor those things you choose to keep!” Meh. Too forced.

Instead, let me show you my new love, the Smith Storage and Stool:

It’s a desk drawer! It’s a cart! It’s a bench! It’s a bookshelf!

It’s SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS!

Sigh. I guess this year for Valentine’s Day I’ll be pining for the (completely out of my price range) Smith Storage and Stool.

    That’s a pretty slick looking product, but $600 for “bended sheet metal on casters” is a little steep!

    [swoon]…I love it, but $600?! I suppose I can continue to live with my regular old stationary bookcase. =]

    Good gracious. At least your wallet would be organized and tidy! As in, cleaned out and EMPTY! I kill me.

    For $600, I want the casters to fold in like airplane landing gear when it’s hanging off the desk or stacked on top of another unit.

    For $600, I want it to roll around the house and pick things up all by itself.

    You could try making it. That oughta be good for 5 evenings worth of activities at the least!

    So your project does double duty; it gives you something you really want inexpensively, and it gives you something to do. And you know unclutterer is all about stuff that does double duty!

    Okay, maybe it is me — but I don’t see the point in this stool thing. I live in a NYC apartment and find that there are storage pieces that serve as furniture as well – but I cannot fathom that this would be that practical. I’d prefer to put my books and such on a shelf and store other belongings in other ways. And really — I think IKEA has other options for considerably less than $600 if I were truly that interested.
