I tell you, sometimes I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world!
The Trash Picking Gods were definitely with me this morning. I ventured into some new neighborhoods and scored! I'm always amazed at what people will put on the curb.
Check out what I found in the TRASH, for FREE!
Okay, they need a little help but these resin wicker chaise lounges are huge! Like I could fit two of me on one! I checked for labels and it's FRONTGATE, score! These sell for about $300 a piece on their website.
Looks like someone had too many pieces of cake.....or too many beers! Okay, so here are the problems with these chairs. Any ideas on how to remedy this all you furniture rehabbers? I'm definitely going to get cushions for both of them so whatever I do to "fix" them can be covered up. How do I patch these where they are strong enough to sit on? Ideas? I'm thinking duck tape will be involved...
Cute little bench. The frame is oil rubbed bronze and in perfect condition. The seat just needs to be recovered. Easy, easy with a staple gun and some fabric!
Okay the picture frame thingie on the left is a little cheesy but could it be something cute? It's a pillar holder on top. Talk about dual purpose! Any ideas on this would be appreciated. The basket has dark green trim but I think it will be cute painted white with a turquoise handle.
And here's the trash find I'm MOST excited about...
Remember the bamboo patio dining table? Well, I ordered a glass top for it last week. I ordered a 1/4" thick with no bevel and the price was $50. This was in the TRASH and has a 1 inch bevel and it's at least a 1/2" thick! I quickly canceled my glass order (fortunately they hadn't made it yet). It fits the table almost perfectly; I'm so excited!!
So just remember, trash picking can be fun! You never know what you're going to find. If you find something cool in the trash drop me a line. I always love to see what everyone else is finding!
