Working at Cross Purposes (pt. 3)

Cross Purposes - the cabinet open - an LP fits right into it! :D

[continued from Working at Cross-Purposes (pt. 2)]

I’m the kind of person who always has a host of mid-process projects cluttering the corners of both their home and mind. Some of these projects are just dormant seeds I squirrel away for decades at a time. Others blossom more quickly … and some stall.

Cross Purposes - The first square frame box

There must be something about autumn because, here I am, a year later, back on this project.

Coming Out Of The Closet

October 2nd, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

There is an ugly, seemingly pointless closet (except for the fact that any storage is good storage in a place this small when you own as much silly garbage as I do) that sat gaping and stupid, like a mouth-breather’s maw, at the back of my new flat’s living room.

Now I could just pinch whatever sub-architect decided this was a good place for a closet but there you have it: a monstrous, ugly coat closet right there at the back of the main room where you’re most likely to do your entertaining. How lovely.

So what to do? I don’t own that many coats. Okay, I could fill it with mannequins but that’s beside the point.
