Trashy Tuesday, Chaise Lounge and Getting Comfy
Welcome to this week’s Trashy Tuesday! There is always something trashy going on around here, I can’t help myself if I come across something junky that can be saved. If you are new here, Trashy Tuesday is a weekly series where I share all Dumpster Diving, Curbside Shopping finds.
Here I was, minding my own business, driving home from the gym and I drove past THIS! Wouldn’t you stop too? Even to look at what they left out on the curb? Holy Cow! I couldn’t believe I was the only one stopped to (scrounge) through the stuff. I guess not everyone shares my passions….
Out of the mess I found this Coffee Table. It needs new hinges, or I thought I would use the top for a big sign or something and make a new top for it. Plus, I am going to lose those legs and add big chunky casters. Nice huh?
Now….for the best part. My parents had a Chaise lounge in their master bedroom while I was growing up. It was one of my favorite places to hang out. (they probably didn’t share my love of me hanging out in their bedroom). My whole adult life, I have wanted a Chaise of my own, but have never quite forked out the money to have one in my master bedroom. Never mind, I found one for free, and managed to fit it into my office! (The shape wasn’t quite right for my bedroom)
I did a major smell test and bug inspection before I threw that thing in my car. I was alone all last week, you can read about my Home DIY Challenge HERE, and the follow up will be tomorrow. Back to the Chaise lounge, I managed to get it out of my van and all through the house. These two legs had to come off in order to get it through the office doorway.
The last time I tried this trick with a Free to Me couch it got stuck. This is what happened. Climbing over the couch all day to get in and out of my office.
I wish I could tell you I whipped out my staple gun and already reupholsterd the chaise lounge, but I did the next best thing. I threw a Drop cloth over it and propped a pillow on it. My dog loves it.
