We are talking about adding storage to the kitchen and discussing creating a pot rack of some description and I was reminded of a grandma story.

My grandma was married to a guy named Super. Seriously, it was his given name. Grandma tells him that she wants a desk with a file cabinet. Super goes out and finds an antique teachers desk at an auction and buys it for grandma. He takes the desk home and builds a top for it to hold files. He then painstakingly stains both items with the green stain grandma picked.

Once his project was finished, he shows grandma what he has done. She tells him it's great. He goes back in the house to enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. Suddenly, he hears a whacking sound coming from the garage. He goes back out to see grandma whacking the desk and top with a chain.

"What are you doing?" He yells at her.

"I'm distressing it!" She tells him.

Until the day they divorced, he told that story to anyone who complimented the desk.
