There are few things that I love more than finding something on the side of the road. These are what I call my curb sale items. Since the beginning of this blog, one of my categories has been “Curb Sale Items,” and I have featured many things that I found in the trash. You can find these posts by going to the Category pull down menu on the right side of this page. One of my all-time favorite blogs is Things I Find In The Trash. Because I have so much fun trash-picking myself and would like to encourage more people to do so, saving as much as possible from unnecessarily entering the landfill, I am going to start posting more of the things that I, or Douglas, find in the trash.
The first item featured are these directors chairs that Douglas found in June.
They are in perfect condition. There only flaw at the time that he found them is that the fabric was dirty. Thankfully, it was easy to remove and the dirt came out easily when I put it in the washing machine. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of them in their newly pristine condition. I am a bad blogger. Terrible. You will just have to trust me; they look good.
My favorite thing about these chairs is that they fold down so flat, making them easy to store. This is the only way that they are even able to fit in our shed right now. The place is overflowing with “treasures.”
So, now I have to decide what to do with them. I have considered making new seat bottoms and backs, since I am not fond of the color even though the fabric is now clean and in good condition. They would also be really easy to paint. However, our basement and shed are already overflowing and we do not really NEED these chairs. Should I sell them on Craigslist? Refinish them and then sell them? Refinish them and then keep them? What do you think I should do with these chairs?
