Learning a New Skill to Rescue a Sentimental Seat

House Revivals broken stool before

This rescue by Amanda at House Revivals really touched my heart.  When Amanda’s mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly, her children were tasked with going through all of her belongings.  By the time Amanda and her husband had arrived, this little stool had already been put in the dumpster.  “I had lovely memories of my mother-in-law sitting on that stool at the head of the picnic table in her kitchen at mealtime (when you have seven children, sometimes a picnic table is the only way to squeeze all the kids in),” Amanda explains.  She had her husband pull the stool out of the dumpster, and it went home with them.
