It's council pick up month round here so the streets are lined with piles of furniture - mostly fridges, sofas and big old TVs. It's all new to me - in the UK you just take it all to the tip yourself. Or dump it in a layby...
I've been very good and I haven't brought anything home - it's the favourite topic of conversation at the school gates at the moment - 'What have you found??'
I've already got a shed full of furniture waiting to be transformed... like these two chairs that Mark's had for years. I always hated them and thought I'd escaped them for ever when we packed up to move. But no, they came with us..
So, I finally got out the sandpaper, a bit of polish, and some nice fabric and voila!
A (half) finished project! (I've still got to do the other one...)
