what isn't a make-do....




it's make-do chain with 1890..........oh my the choices.....our whole house has been one make-do after another......but narrowed it down to only two simple choices....... in our kitchen.....a cupboard traded with a friend......not quite tall enough......solution......an old washer base from the back porch to make it just right...............the other.....a simple, rusted out coffee pot made into a light fixture for over the counter in the shop...................................oh my goodness the make-do stories I could tell....but will settle for only two at the moment....who knows when the others might show up in another chain..................................................i am blessed !

Hello Denice,
I'm just getting around to all the Display Chain participants tonight. I SO relate to your post...it seems that everything we have is a make do. I especially love seeing your clever solution to the too short cupboard. :) Thanks for sharing your home with us!
