This was meant to be mine

We live in a little house, at least little for the six of us.
I also have a compulsion for collecting furniture
that needs refinishing and not getting around to it.
For that reason I try to resist new items --
but not this little spindly magazine rack.
When the thrift shop vendor said it was $2
and that is had been sitting in the back room for years, 
I knew it was just waiting for me.
For now I will just clean it up with some lemon oil
and maybe I will eventually paint it along with the other pieces.
Now, we finally have one place to hold library books.
