So, I was up at the butt crack this morning, had to take the girls to the groomers for a bath and hair cuts. Along the way, I passed by several houses with furniture sitting by the side of the road and one piece was an old desk. I thought as I passed by, man, I’d like to have that but I know my husband would shriek about bringing “someone else’s junk home”, and besides that, it needs refinishing…badly! In addition, I believe it’s against a city ordinance to pick items up, free or not, from the side of the road, even though folks around here do it all the time! So, I sent the pics to my crafty sister in law-in case she needed a project piece, however, I still might ask the hubby if we can go get that desk, ha! I’m not even sure I have the talent and/or energy it would take to transform it, I just know, I don’t like my makeshift office furniture I’m using at the moment. I thought I’d throw in a few pics of the pieces I passed up just for grins- also, I’ll show you before and after pics of my beautiful shorkies once they get back from the groomers. I don’t mind being up early on Saturday, we get a jump on projects and errands and the world just seems much more pretty and peaceful in the mornings. As a bonus, I heard my new favorite song on the way to the groomers and got my rockin on early this morning! It’s a song by a French group called Gojira, called Stranded and it’s already popular on Sirius/XM. I love it, but then again, I’m a rocker so….
Here is the furniture I passed by this morning
Pit all looks pretty rough now that I’m back home and can see it more clearly. Oh well, someone will get it by day’s end I’m sure, maybe someone who REALLY needs it. 😊
Have you ever picked up pieces of furniture or something else on the side of the road and transformed it into a thing of beauty? I want to see it if so. I’ve got to go get ready to pick up the pups in a while so they can sit with mme later, on the patio. 😀
