DISMANTLING a Storage Headboard (but wanting it to be breitbart news and it’s former manager)

Lately, I’ve been terribly upset and angry about the things happening in our country, so I decided to take out my angst on an oversized, white, ugly, serves no good purpose, waste of space, that is full of shit (no, not that guy) – my Henredon campaign style headboard/chest contraption that was sitting in my mudroom.

I took my circular saw and cut the chest laterally in half.  The top half became “lockers” and the bottom half became part of the new long storage bench in the puppy proofed mudroom.  If only we were able to dismantle brietbart news in much the same way and split the parts up into something more useful.

Lockers for puppy paraphanalia
Bench for people paraphanalia
The big, weird, shit holder (no, not him - this headboard used as storage)
The headboard laid on it's back ready for slaughter
What the headboard used to look kind of like when I first found it
The innards of the headboard
The bottom half of the headboard in place
The bottom half with a new lid
Glamour shot of the puppy paraphanalia lockers
Lockers with basket that can't really be on the floor with puppies - this is my version of alternative facts since those are all the rage now

So, if you are feeling low and blue about the state of our country as the result of  fake news and reality stars, take a sharp tool and slaughter an inanimate object!

It might make you feel more powerful.  Powerful enough to then get out and actually do something more useful than staying sequestered in your home and renovating the same spaces over and over and over again, because I as much as I wish that would effect a positive change in the world of politics, it does not 🙁
