Look! One Man's Trash

Look! One Man's Trash

We saw this abandoned dresser on our walk home from BART last Friday. It's not much to look at; however, as we compile a wish list of things we need around the house (as part of our cure), we've really got our mind set on salvaged materials. So this dresser, which might have looked like a pile of trash to us two weeks ago, looked like a pile of gold three days ago. OK -- that's a stretch. At the very least it looked like potential shelving. How many different things do you see in this worn out dresser? We're finding that people in the bay area like to leave their unwanted items out on the sidewalk. Every walk around the neighborhood turns up something unique. A friend recently salvaged a beautiful (antique-looking) end table. Last week we saw a pair of perfectly good skateboards on the curb outside our neighbor's house. Have you ever found something wonderful on the sidewalk?
