I had to leave this on the side of the road….

….due to lack of car space & manpower (Sob!) It was kind of beat up, and I doubt it works, but what a beautiful piece of furniture! My mind was swimming with ideas for it, but after 10 minutes on the side of a busy road, rearranging my trunk and attempting to slide it over to my car, I came to the realization that there was no way I was getting it home. I only hope some other junker got it! Would hate to see this one go to waste.

On the bright side, before heading to a night-before-kindergarten dinner last night (yes, Piper started kindergarten today!) I took a drive around my parent’s neighborhood and came upon a house where it looked like the tenants had recently been evicted. I don’t normally dig through trash cans, but I took a look inside one that obviously didn’t contain actual garbage, and I found this beauty!

Only a junker could appreciate it, I’m sure….but I can’t wait to upholster a chair with it. I also got a couple pieces of pottery, a big jar full of unused matchbooks, and this neat little “spanish guitar tuning pipe” in a leather case.

I have about 30 pieces of extra furniture in my house that are just waiting for me to work on them. All I need is the time to do it! I hope to be back to share some finished projects soon….

  1. Oh no!!! That hurts having to leave this beauty behind… I am still mad at myself (or the car), a few weeks ago, there was some furniture on the curb and my car was still full with stuff. Had to leave it behind, too.
    I love the burlap! You could also frame it since it’s a very pretty motif. Use some old fence wood for the frame, cardboard for the back and then just staple it, hanger, done! That’s what I do with my potato and coffee bags and sell them, looks great and guaranteed sales!
