One of my favorite things to do is to go “curb pickin” every month when our city has big trash day. I can’t believe what people throw out! I have found cool vases, night stands, an awesome wing back chair, out-door chairs, etc… the list goes on and on including my next project.
Well my latest pick was the day before yesterday, I dropped my son off at school and then went looking…….2 blocks later…..(the sound of heavenly angels singing…. with a bright light surrounding this fantastic find) lol
I couldn’t believe it! I thought I could take it apart and do something with it… I knew that I could find some use for it, so I picked that baby up and took it home. I tightened everything up checked the cord all out, put a bulb in it and plugged it in….again…angels singing….light surrounding this beauty…(cause it freakin works)
Now I have a perfectly good lamp that I have seen similar ones at Lowes for $150.00+ pretty awesome!!!!
Don’t ever be afraid to stop and just look at what people are throwing out….you never know what you will find. 🙂
Ps: What is the coolest thing you have found on a curb?
