    Not sure if this is where I should post this question or not, but I am hoping you can solve a mystery for me. I have been puzzling over this question for about a year now. I am in the process of setting up a combination office/art room and came up with this idea of turning some cool wood wine crates into cubbies for my various art stuff and doo-dads I tend to collect. (I had actually started out looking for old wood pop crates, but they tend to be expensive.) But I cannot come up with an easy, yet esthetically pleasing way to divide the crates into cubbies. I started out with thin wood that I was going to cut and fit as shelves/dividers. But then I got scared. Then I thought about PVC pipe, which my son informed me would not do the wine crates justice. Any suggestions?

    How long will you be manning the True Value Facebook page? I can’t seem to get onto facebook right now & I have a question I’ve been wanting you to answer for some time now about repainting old furniture.

    Have you known anyone doing any painting when they have oxygen in the house/apt? I am on nite oxygen for sleep apnea. I am in the process of painting furniture. Purple for my bedroom, and White for my Living room. My office furniture is done, and we had no problem with that. But my next project will be my bedroom. Then I’ll move out to my living room and dining room. And what do you all feel about painting real wood furniture? You see, being in an apt, I can’t paint walls here. The newer complexes are now allowing folks to have an accent wall. Not sure where the location is. Probably Living Room or Kitchen. So just thought I’d ask. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
