The Tale of Two Chairs

On our way to church last night, we passed a neighbor's house down the street that had a large amount of wood by the road. (They had obviously done a major weekend project.)


When we rode by, E said, "Mom, did you see that great old chair?" I had missed it. All I saw was the wood. We turned around to check it out. There sitting among the wood was this great old chair!

So my sweet hubby loaded her up and took her back home.

Then, a few hours later on our way home from church, we passed the same trash pile. My same daughter said, "Mom did you see that chair?" I laughed thinking she was joking...she said there really is a big chair! So we turned around to take a look. Sure enough, there was this amazing chair that wasn't there the first time!


It is dirty and gross BUT it has a great shape and is very sturdy! Can you see the potential?
Thank you to my sweet husband who CARRIED this big heavy chair down to our house - about 6 houses away...and thanks to my daughter who found not one, but TWO chairs for FREE!

Oh yes, both chairs have loads of potential.
Can't wait to see what you do with them.

You've taught your daughter well! Yes, I can see the potential in both. The first one has a great shape, and the second will be great after a good cleaning, or reupholstering. It looks very comfy. Tell your daughter she's got a good eye!
