I can't resist. I see one at the side of the road, I have to stop. Driving through residential neighbourhoods on large item garbage day, my eyes dart wildly at every curb, checking and re-checking the trashpiles like a problem gambler at a bingo game.
Last time this happened, I scored a unique chair with a heart pattern drilled into the seat, and a wooden rocking chair - 100% free!
Those ones above were discovered on a bike ride, hidden in the woods where two tiny gravel roads meet. They had ancient, hideous, crumbling woven seats - which I cut away to spare you. They're a little wobbly right now, but they're high, barstool-like chairs that are brimming with potential. Don't you agree?
Keep an eye out for the big makeover!
There was the most perfect black chair, with turned legs and a tooled leather seat, that I spotted at the Antique Barn last Saturday. I passed it up, but I've been coveting it hard all week. Don't you hate that? **crossing my fingers that it's still there this weekend!**
