So my hubby, knowing me the way he does, called me this morning with an interesting prospect. Someone a couple of streets over from where we live was throwing away a ton of kids play stuff. Since I am a committed dumpster diver who knows no shame I drove over to scout for prospects. A LOT of the stuff was admittedly junk, but I found a dirty, disgusting diamond in the rough.
Now, don’t let the pictures fool you. This bad boy was even more horrid in real life. :)
I drilled a couple of holes in the base so some trapped rain water could drain out. I went through an entire roll of paper towels and half a bottle of Lysol Multi-Purpose cleaner (which happens to have a FABULOUS lemon scent), but boy oh boy, was it worth it. This table is perfect for E, and it will be a great place to color and have tea parties all year long!
Anybody else out there search for diamonds in the rough? What are your best finds? Let me know!!!
