One Man's Trash...

...is another person's MY treasure!  All thanks to my sweet husband who went dumpster diving on trash night a couple weeks ago.  Okay, not really dumpster diving.  But he did pick up this set of tables from the side of the road in our neighborhood.   


The first time I passed them I did a double take and thought they might be fun tables.  The second time I passed them, I could tell they were super fun and I really really wanted them but was too nervous to get them myself.  I didn't want to have that awkward conversation with the homeowners about digging through their garbage.  So instead, I drove home and asked my husband ever so sweetly to get them for me, and it worked! 


And wouldn't you know it, the guy from the house came out and chatted it up with B.J.  Better him than me.  He said his wife fixes up furniture but didn't get around to these tables so they put them on the side of the road in hopes someone would want them.  Mission accomplished!  I love the shape but mostly I love the legs.  Oh the legs. 


They are currently taking up real estate in our garage, stacked on top of some wood pallets.  The same wood pallets that will hopefully be turned into our bed sooner than later.  Fingers crossed, my friends. 


I actually like the thought of keeping the tables in a wood finish.  Yes, you heard me correctly.  I might not paint them.  Crazy, I know.  But as you can see in the pics, the tables are a little beat up.  Hopefully I can sand them down and stain them in a walnut finish, or something like that. 


All of this will be much more exciting when our master bedroom isn't piled in our garage.  Don't you agree?  Pin It
