"I believe this was one of those small cabinets that go above a toilet or perhaps in a laundry room," says Sherry at Upcycle Addict. "It was in perfect condition… nothing wrong with it. It was sitting on a curb along with a small mountain of stuff that had been tossed after clean up from the tornado."
Joan blogs at Nicer Than New. When she spotted this chair on the curb in her neighbourhood, she made a u-turn and loaded it up, duct tape and all. On closer inspection, she discovered that the chair was made of teak in Denmark. "By the tag, I also believe he was a big deal during the '70s," Joan says.
Deb blogs at India Pied-a-Terre. This little cabinet was a contribution to their household from her husband's bachelor days. "I've hated this Danish style cabinet and was ready it get rid of it and replace it. The cabinet shook when you opened and closed the doors and the doors were always crooked. Plus it was boring!" she exclaims.
At Art is Beauty, Karin got a call from a relative saying another relative was clearing out all the old furniture in his basement. She scored a couple of good freebies, and she also got this dining set that had seen better days. The table and chairs were in such bad shape that Karin didn't work on it right away.
