Pieces of Trash

So the other day driving home, I was doing my usual looking around for any furniture that has been tossed out into the cold. We drove past a house with a huge dumpster out front, and sitting along side the dumpster was this great big basket.
I let my kids pick out some paint and went at it.
While grabbing the basket , I noticed some great legs sticking out of the top and asked my husband to jump in. the loving man he is, he climbed up and pulled out this great entry table, well pieces of the entry table. We gathered all the pieces and brought it home for some LOVE!
I forgot to take a picture of her, in all its' pieces. So here is the before, after the repairs.

These pictures do not show how truly gross this table was. It looks as if she had lived a pretty rough life.
So here she is after some serious R&R.
I hope you love her as much as I do.


Thanks for stopping by.
One more picture, just because this is my favorite Halloween decoration this year. Good thing I listened to my kids ideas on this one.
Have a great day!
