Last night we were on a walk and came across some trash sitting on the side of the street. Along with the trash there were ten vintage kid-size metal folding chairs just sitting there. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure? Yes!
Eight of the little chairs were white and two of them were yellow. They definitely need to be sprayed down and they could even use a fresh coat of paint (so many color options! wouldn’t they look cute in a super light pink!?). But they are solid and I started thinking of all the things I could do with them. Mainly, trying to sell them to make some extra coin (I just found a whole slew of vintage kid-size folding chairs for sale on Etsy!). So I picked up a few of the chairs and got my husband to grab some too (to say that he wasn’t as excited about them as I was would be an understatement).
It’s been a little while since I went Dumpster Diving so I was a little hesitant. Should I have asked the homeowners if they would mind if I took the chairs or was it okay to just take them? I figured since they were sitting by the trash they were fair game. What do you think?
