All these terms might make some ashamed, but for others, it's a chance to get free stuff. In this case, my "new" free chairs fell under the heading of Curb Alert. An ad was placed for a curb alert for some items near me. By the time I got there, the items I was after were already taken but there were dining room chairs in desparate need of a second chance. They were very dirty and the seats were covered in pet hair, but I saw the potential. So into the back of my SUV they went for a second chance at usefulness. Afterall, they couldn't be worse than the spare folding chairs we would pull out at the holidays to make seating for the extra people.
My husband has learned to see the potential in the stray furniture I bring home. Or at least he pretends to see, trusting that I can see it even if he can't. So here's the before pictures.
|Nice black iron and wood for a sturdy chair|
|Ewwww! There was so much pet hair that the elephant pattern was barely visible.|
