I had a vision...

There is a small problem at Chateau du la Francaise. Legos and children's toys are taking over my life. I need some new storage options! Mr. Man keeps threatening hideous shelving and some sort of database to find what you are looking for. Then the heavens opened, and I saw this by the side of the road with a "Free" sign posted on it. I pulled over, gave it a quick inspection, and drove right home to pick up Mr. Man's Muscles. This thing is solid wood, and it weighs as much as an elephant. When I pulled up next to it, he said, "Really? I mean.. really? This?" I proclaimed, "Trust Me!!" We got it into the garage and I said, "It's going to be awesome, we can store 2 billion legos in here." He just politely said, "I dont' really have the vision yet, but I trust you." I showed my neighbor who just smiled thru gritted teeth and said, "Wow. I think it will be handy." Truthfully, it looks like something you'd find in the Regal Beagle, with Jack, Chrissy, and Janet. Maybe that zany Mr. & Mrs. Roper might have one in their place. However, people... I knew this had potential, I had a vision that it would be gorgeous and glam. It cost about $15 for new hardware, and I already had the paint. (Mr. Man claims I paint everything black. We all know once you go black.... ) Mr. Man's jaw dropped when he saw it and claimed I pulled a switcharoo on him. The neighbor gushed, and it really does hold 2 billion legos. I'm pretty proud of myself... hence the bragging post.
