I live on a military base and let me tell you the stuff people put in their trash!! Look at this- its like a treasure trove if you can work a sander, a hammer or a sewing machine!!

I found these today! their iron I think... and the only think wrong? the upholstry is ripped!! can you say my sexy new kitchen chairs (now they just nee to throw out a table LOL)

its hard to see but its a dresses, my husband and it carried it 3 blocks to our hoouse. What wrong with it? the bottoms are falling out of the drawers, it just need a little glue and a few small nails, and yes a paint job!! ><

Once upoin a time this was an ugly chair with nasty pink uphosltys, its about to be painted blacka nd uphoslters with star wars fabric for my sons room!! yeah!

just want to share, as i get them done I'll post more pictures!! yeah!!

YOu remind me of the babe!
What babe?
The babe with the power!
What power?
The power of Voodoo!
Who do?
You do!
Do what?
Remind me of the babe!

Lucky finds! I too, would have dragged those home. I can't wait to see what you do with them. Grin d

If only closed minds came with closed mouths!

If the world is getting smaller, why do postage rates keep going up?

Gah! Why can't people throw away cool things in my complex?! At my cousin's complex we found nice looking barcalounger and a new looking futon... yeah... I couldn't fit them in my car or they'd be in my room right now XD! I told him next futon he spots is mine... same with a barcalounger!
