Ok, so I admit it.
I went dumpster diving.
Never, EVER in my life have I done such a thing.
I mean, up until a year or so ago, I never shopped at yard sales or thrift stores either (think about all the fun stuff I missed out on)....so you can imagine my thinking about people who "shop" curbside. LOL! Not that I think there anything is wrong with it, I just never did it until.....
A few months back I was driving around the block waiting for an open parking spot in front of a store (yes, I was being lazy, but in my defense it was still winter and freezing outside), when I spotted this little wooden children's chair sitting beside a dumpster. It looked fine, just a bit beat up.
As I got closer, I saw the reason it was there, the seat was missing. The frame looked fine. So I thought what the heck and threw caution to the wind and tossed in the back of my van. Rich is very handy with things like this, so I figured he could cut a seat out of some scrap wood and I could paint it and it would be good as new.
I laughed all the way home at myself for doing such a thing.....
I told Rich what I did and showed him the chair and just as I thought, he said it would be an easy fix.
It needed a bit of tlc (some sanding and a bit of wood glue). And now here she is all primed and ready for her new seat and a fresh, fun coat of paint and she'll be good as new.
Can't wait to show her off when she's finished!
