Regular readers know that I have a new favorite place to look for bargains...our downstairs trash area! Our building has trash chutes on every floor and they feed into a separate room, but for boxes and other things that you can't put in the chute, there is an area (indoors) near the loading dock for people to put things they don't want. I've found several cool items.
And last weekend, before we went to the farm, I stopped to see what I could find and I found this! It looks to be some sort of child's room stand? Or Laundry room storage perhaps?
It has these lime green polka dotted pull out baskets. I know some might like this style but it's not exactly "us", ha. Fortunately, they were attached to the sliding part with Velcro and so they were easily removable.
I took them out and saved them. Need to find a friend with sewing skills to make some replacements and we figured it would be easier to keep the old ones as a future pattern. Maybe using an outdoor type fabric like Sunbrella.
Why outdoor fabric?

Because of this! It's the perfect table for between the rocking chairs, a place for my drink while I'm working outside and taking a break, a place to leave my phone, etc. I put a dish towel on top to keep off the water damage.
Remember this BLOG POST about the snake on the porch when I reached down to pick up my glass?
Yeah, that won't be a worry now, ha.
