Yeah. We named our new/old chair. We love her that much.
Want to know how we found her?
I always lament how other people seem to find incredible pieces for free, either on the curbs in their neighborhood or via Freecycle. Well, now that we are considerably closer to Atlanta than we were before, I decided I’d give the city’s Freecycle group a try. I’m glad I did. This beauty popped up a few days ago, and I emailed the previous owner as soon as I saw the photo. With Freecycle, you never know how quickly an item will be snatched up, so I had my fingers crossed. :: READ THE FULL POST
You know how you always read on decorating blogs how people have refurbished great pieces of furniture that they found sitting by a dumpster, in an alley or on the curb for trash pickup? I always thought those people were pretty lucky, since none of my neighbors ever seemed to throw away any furniture, let alone anything worth taking.
Until last weekend.
My husband and I were driving in to our apartment complex when we spied this chair and another piece sitting next to the community dumpster. He had barely stopped the car before I jumped out to take a closer look. There was a TV table in sad condition that we couldn’t save, but the chair? It wasn’t exactly pretty, and it was a little wobbly, but it was otherwise in great shape. :: READ THE FULL POST
