Half the furniture in my house is either second-hand or plucked from the side of the road on trash day.
Check out this incredible mid-centrury vinyl chair we garbage picked earlier this week:
Isn't it gorgeous?! It's in great condition! It has some scratches on the edges of the vinyl, and a typewriter sat on it for a long time and left marks (we garbage picked the typewriter too!), and it was filthy, so we wiped it down with Krud Kutter and it looks good as almost-new!
So excited to put it in my living room. When we picked it up, we thought we might recover it with funky fabric, but honestly it cleaned up so nice that I don't think it needs to be covered.
