Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes of the brain factory here at GotchaChaCha. First I am showing off my new soft light boxes, which hopefully will make my product photo’s look better.

Then you see a table of the journals I have put together in  search of ways to utilize old books. Nothing quite work, sadly. It has been a while since I have looked at them, so I wanted to see what I had done with fresh eyes. Back to the drawing board! Hope to get something figured out to put in the store.


Draft Table AND Chair

I love my new giant table from the 1980’s. It has a metal bottom and a wood top. I can stand and work at it. Which isn’t always good, sometimes I need to put leverage into things, and I can’t cuz the table is too high, but overall it is great.

So my hubby went ahead and refinished the wood for me. I started it, but it was a huge job gobs of glue kept a pad on it for 30 years! That is always a vexing problem for me in the recycle business, how to get glue off of stuff.  But he went far and beyond, got all the glue off, sanded and sanded and then stained and sealed it. What A Guy. Here is picture:

Then I replaced the fabric on the top part of the stool that we got with the table:

Now, to get some work done!
