This furniture find began on an afternoon walk with Norman last Friday. Apparently our neighbor down the street couldn't fit everything they owned into their moving van so he was piling it outside to get rid of (and I mean throw away which really gets my gizzard [yes, I am 80] because Salvation Army will come pick things up for free but I digress). Best of all, I was the first one there! I ran (well walked briskly because I'm not that crazy) home and corralled my darling husband into walking up the street to bring home these fabulous and completely free finds. Here's what I scored:
This lovely side table
A cute shabby chic round table
A ceramic pot and stand and that adorable wicker side table
These neat cane folding chairs
A luggage rack
And absolutely best of all.....
Can you believe they were just giving away a dining room table and those lovely parsons chairs??? There are eight chairs in total which is a serious plus. I was just sighing over how expensive a nice dining room table would be and this one falls into our laps! Providence I tell you. I am beyond excited about all the new things we have (something I may have mentioned to my husband three or ten times that evening). Some of them may not stay with us but if I can't find a home for them the local Salvation Army will.
