Found items by the dumpster

So I like to dumpster dive, what's it to ya?
Heavy metal patio chairs found all alone.
Perfectly good, antique dresser!
Not found per say...bought for $2.50 at the thrift store. Repainted it red and black.
The tables, stools, and planters...all free
Made into a Kitty Kastle
My work station
I recovered this piece
Needs to TLC but what a beautiful chair!

    I love picking up items on the side of the road. I found an awesome mirror by some trashcans at a fancy house in Hollywood Hills and the owners even helped me out by moving it closer to the road and telling me the story of having it custom made! I've also picked up chairs left for trash out of the parking lot of a company I was interviewing for a job at. Didn't take the job, but I still have the rehabbed chairs in my house!
