Finds: Garbage Diving

(Chest Detail)

So I hit the motherload this weekend- bulk trash pick-up was yesterday in my neighborhood and I found 4 treasures!
We were driving back from Home Depot (I know we are living on the edge), when I passed this house with a lot of stuff outside- I spotted the chest first and said and I quote, “Stop the car…no really stop the car!” Hubby was like- we can’t fit one more thing in this van, which was true as we bought all our supplies to build our veggie garden (look out for that post). So we jolted home and unloaded the van and then I walk/ran back to the house to get my dibs on the pieces. I discovered 3 more great items, 2 beautifully carved wood tables and a really cool trunk. What is better than free stuff?!  So I cleaned them thoroughly and have some ideas for fixing them up! To be continued…

    Sarah, you are a girl after my own heart and your grandfather Gilbert. I cannot tell you how many things I have rescued for my house and others! I can’t believe the things people throw away but that’s more for us!
