Necessity is the mother of invention.
That specific quote goes a long way here at the house.
I was tired of stacking all the wood on the brick and was heading to True Value to buy a metal wood rack. Tom stopped me in my tracks. "Why spend $30 on one of those things when I can make one for you?" he says.
So I let him go to work and voila, here we have it, a new wood rack to stash it in the house. And the rack behind that is to dry our wet clothes from outside.
Boy did I marry a handy man!
