A Dash of Coco bench before

Coco keeps track of her projects at A Dash of Coco.  When she spotted this bench on her neighbors’ curb, she was torn.  It’s the dilemma of many a roadkill rescuer when faced with neighborhood roadkill:  grab it and run, or ask for permission to turn their junk into something fabulous?  In Coco’s case, she went and asked for it, and they neighbors were beyond thrilled to let it enjoy a new life at her house.  Hooray!
