Awesome Side-of-the-Road Find
Hurrah! By some miracle of the Junk Gods, I pretty much found exactly what I’ve been looking for, for free, on the side of the road. We were on our way back from getting some Freecycled kale (kale! who knew people Freecycled kale? apparently there is such a thing as a free lunch), and saw a whole line of school desks on the side of the road, in front of an old school. I have been stopping by Goodwill about twice a week looking for something to work as an art table in the boys’ room, and lo, here were about ten art tables (in a sense), for free. I got four, thinking I can configure them into a square. And I love that they come with the built-in storage, since what’s an art table without space for paper and markers? They looked much better after I hosed them off, and they do need a scrubbing with some steel wool, and maybe some paint on the legs if I get really ambitious. You can see that Eli helped himself to two little chairs, which we do probably need in case a friend comes over. Now maybe our dining room table will be a lot easier to clear every night.
