one man's trash...

... is this woman's treasure!!!

I drove past this little settee on Monday evening, as it sat by the side of the road after a day or more of rain. I loved it at first sight, but we were driving the small car and it was full of people.

Fast-forward through another full day and night of rain on Tuesday, and still more rain this morning...

I decided to try my luck, and see if the sogginess factor would've scared off all the other people who might otherwise have snatched up this beauty. Apparently it did.

And oh, how lucky I am!!! It's solidly built, and all the springs are still intact and not sagging... I just need to wait for it to dry out a bit, and give it a lick of paint and some new upholstery.



  1. I can't wait to see it completed. It will be lovely.

  2. I can't wait too!!! :D
    Now I just need to choose between painting or staining the wood, and white or coloured upholstery...

  3. That is a real find - it will be transformed - well done for seeing the potential.

  4. A woman after my own heart! I love trash days! great score for you indeed!

  5. Well done treasure hunter - looking forward to seeing how you get it - much rain here this week too
