Slat Board

Last weekend we made a little visit to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  We love going there.  We got all of our outside lights for under $50 (that's 5 lights), plenty of carpet for the studio, and a ton of other things.  And the best thing is they are located only 5 min up the road from us.  Dangerous.

And last trip we picked up some of this

I'f you don't know what it is, it's called slat board.  You see it in a lot of buisnesses, people put it up in garages and workshops.  It's like pegboard, but more heavy duty.  And we picked it up for $20 for a 4x8 sheet.  And if you're not in the know, we priced this as $44 at the local hardware store.  We got 4 sheets.

Now I own a small two door coupe.  I had no idea how J planned on getting this home, but where there is a will there is a way.

He brought the battery powered circular saw and cut it into 2x8 sections in the parking lot (he asked the manager of the ReStore before doing it).  Then we loaded them in my little car, tied down the hatch (we forgot the straps), and drove the 5 min home.  Thank goodness we live so close.  I wouldn't want to drive far like this.

J plans on putting them up in the garage next spring.  He's so excited about having slat board.  Who knew something like this would be so exciting.  Boys.  :-)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  It's supposed to be nice here, probably the last nice weekend until spring.  Maybe Yoda will get some more leaf time.
