Wow! I’m still basking in the glow of this amazing find.
When we were in Vancouver last weekend we were driving down the street to get to a family party when I saw from a passing alley a couple of chairs next to the dumpster. It took me a couple seconds to decide to tell Cam. He rolled his eyes and asked if my mentioning it meant I wanted him to turn around. I usually drive in the city since it’s something he loathes doing so I knew he didn’t want to turn around. BUT I could have sworn those chairs were wood so I said yes, can he turn around please.
Not having lived in the city or that particular neighbourhood, like I had, he couldn’t believe that these gorgeous wooden chairs could be put out as trash. He didn’t understand that people put things out like this so interested parties can come take them away. He didn’t want me to take them. I didn’t care. Did I mention they were gorgeous? They were placed between the dumpster and the alley so I put them in the back of the truck. Lifting the darker chair resulted in two of the legs falling out of the holes. On quick inspection it was clear that only a little wood glue would be needed to fix this problem.
So here are my two fabulous finds. I really love them!
