Free Furniture

There are TWO of these French caned ladder backs...
Even the upholstery is in decent shape - just dirty.
I'll redo it, but it is not a top priority.

And forgive this horrible photo - I took it this morning.
The light was not great, and they were ALL blurry.

See the great storage? Still dirty and dusty...

Of course, the photo of dirt is much clearer. Hmmm.
But isn't this an adorable piece? 
Even the rush seat is in good shape.

More blurry dust. But you can see an interesting
little triangular table. It has a pretty big gouge
in the wood top...

But I think some stainable wood filler 
might be just the ticket.

There are two more very cool chairs - circa 1970's.
They're already in my garage,
which is where these pieces are going, too.
At least until after Christmas.

And now, my furniture game plan 
needs to be reworked. 

Since these pieces are better than some
I already had, they will be added, 
and the ones I had will be sold in
the next garage sale. 

And did I forget to tell you?
These pieces were all rescued 
from going into a great big old dumpster!

I overheard some co-workers talking about 
cleaning out a storage building, so I asked
if there was any furniture or anything.
They said yes, so I went to look early
in the morning on the day they were
tossing it all into the dumpster. 
I called Julie, and she and her son came.
They took some cool 1950's office chairs...
regular new office chairs, an oak table,
a large book case, and who knows what else!

I LOVE the idea of having furniture
that spent years inside a church.
It seems...blessed. Or something.

And I can't wait to see what a little paint
can do on these pieces...
and BOY am I glad I had room in my garage
after having that garage sale!

Word for the Day:
Exodus 26:34
You shall put the mercy seat 
on the ark of the testimony in the Most Holy Place.
