My son took a walk the other evening and came home with the news there was a free furniture jumble around the corner.
So, around I went with the truck, getting a "new" easy chair that needs cleaning (if the before-unsmelled cigarette odor doesn't leave it's out of here!), and some "raised beds!"
The "raised beds" are an old maple dresser. The dresser was missing the top drawer, so I am not feeling the least bit guilty over what I did to the piece! It also stinks of old cigarette, which doesn't make me hopeful I'll be able to save the chair. Older furniture was made of solid wood (even the drawer bottoms and back), no glue, no nails (tongue and groove) and from what I have seen in photos, make for nice little planting beds.
I got two of the drawer "beds," and one larger "bed," which isn't as attractive, what with the funky/chunky legs. I may not keep it, now that I see what it looks like in photo-form! I like the drawers though.
