Trash to Treasure

Remember that desk I rescued from the trash? It was feeling a little lonely without a chair by its side. Then, one day when I was driving home, I spotted a chair right around the corner from my house. Poor chair had been thrown into a ditch, and of course I decided to take it home with me. Chairs found in ditches require a lot of tlc, but this one was worth it since it was solid wood and just right for my desk. I sanded it down to find hunter green paint under its current red and yellow paint. Thats right, red and yellow...perfect for a fast food establishment but not quite the look I was going for. It's now a subtle shade of green with a crisp white cushion.
