Old coffee cans and worn woodgrain shelves harmonize seamlessly. There undoubtedly isn’t a one car garage from the 1950’s that doesn’t have the two items present. There may be flour sack tailored curtains depending if grandma had a say, but this isn’t standard issue like exposed wood and coffee cans. The coffee cans are experiencing their second life as a holder of odds and ends.  The leftovers after a project find their final resting place here, contents of open urns with the hope of being applicable to a future project. Time has a way of aging the container and wood grain making them more beautiful with each passing year. Strangely, there is a quality and attractiveness that wasn’t present when first enlisted for duty decades ago.
