has become my treasure.
You see, a few weeks ago I noticed that someone in a house down the street from me was putting furniture out on their curb. It started with a desk and then came a beat up entertainment center. Then one night, on my way to the movies, I noticed a lawn mower, smoker, chairs and spreader (for fertilizer/seed) joined the broke down furniture.
I liked the chairs but was too scared to grab them in broad daylight. My mom is usually the scavenger (thanks mom!) and I debated about calling her but had a movie to get to so I posted on Facebook. My concern was that if I took them and they weren’t free I’d be a thief and end up in jail. (Okay, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but still!) I consulted with my Facebook friends and the friend who came to the movies with me and decided it was worth a closer look at the chairs.
So, in the cover of night my friend Denise and I saddled up next to the chairs and checked them out. They were sturdy and just enough worn down that I could believe they were being given away. Just to be safe though I went up and knocked on the door. There was no answer so we loaded them in my Jeep and off we went.
I got home and put them on my back patio but didn’t really check them out closely until the next morning.
They’re very comfortable and just begging for a makeover!
My plan is to sand out the rough patches and paint them. I’m leaning towards a bright yellow but am also considering orange and turquoise but I’d love your suggestions!
