Unfortunately these stores don't have all the tools needed for a proper hardwood floor repair. A few exceptions or ones a novice can handle may include fixing squeaky floors with ring shank nails or using putty or colored stain pens to repair scratches. Another may be fixing glued floors that have lost their adhesive bond. The tool of choice here is a glue injection kit, but you will not find them at the big orange or blue stores.
I finally decided on these metal shelves from Target. The brand is Room Essentials and they come in different widths and numbers of shelves and are also available in black. I purchased the wide three self system in chrome. I also added the industrial 4 inch casters. The shelves require no tools to assemble and the casters screw directly in to the bottom of the legs. Each shelf is rated to hold more than 300 pounds. I also bought a roll of shelf lining for the bottom two shelves. The shelves are modular so I can add additional units later if I want. Target has all of this together in one location in the store so it was a one stop shopping kind of thing. The total cost for the shelves and liner was right at $60.
Crates are forklift-maneuverable plywood boxes constructed by either the shipper or appropriate local crating service or even purchased from a vendor of pre-assembled crates. Crating is frequently necessary for furniture like sofas and couches and is a logical practice in order to protect any bulky or delicate items during the shipping process. Open crates are sometimes used as well, which is a box of wood framed around the item(s) on the pallet instead of completely enclosed in plywood as with a normal crate. Further, the crate's contents more than likely need to be secured or strapped down inside as well.
One plastic 50 gallon barrel. I located three on Craigslist and paid $24 for all three, so $8. Four three inch rigid-caster wheels. Harbor Freight has them for $3 each, so $12 for these. Treated wood, although I used 2X6's, treated deck wood would work just as well,$20. Paint for the barrel, $4.25. Paint for the platform,$7.50. Lag bolts and washers to mount the rigid casters $4.80. Two 2" PVC vent pipes cut from a ten foot length of pipe, $5. Four NIBCO 1 1/2 In. PVC DWV Trap Adapter Spigot x Slip Joints,$8. Window hardware: 8"continuous hinge and three cabinet latches, $9. The total is $78.55. Of course any of these materials you happen to have on hand will decrease your cost:
There are lots of household materials that you can use in your artwork. You will find many useful materials around your home and also at your local grocery and hardware store. Never throw out a kitchen sponge or old newspaper. They are very useful for moving colors around. Save old jar caps and plastic plates to do amazing space painting and cosmic art. Collect and organize your tools well because it can really suck to have to break to go look for something.
