 My neighborhood has during April a "pick up" service where everyone can put on the curve what they dont want anymore and the garbage department will come and pick it up... well many people are aware of it and take their pickups and go scavenging, me included lol ;)

Here are my fab finds.  They are still in the the ruff but I will work on them and post new pics when done.

 for my deck! :)

 this fabulous little table/planter holder which I want to paint in a bold color and might add some art to it ;) I am looking into putting some glass pieces or mirror on the top.

and my master piece! lol...

 I stopped on a dime when I saw this on the curve.. its so cool and really good wood.. cant imagine why someone would throw it out... but now its mine :)

 We used to do this in Europe. The trash would pick up large items one day a month and the night before....cars would just be circling the neighborhood. We found some great almost new coffee tables and shelves. :)

 and I was so mad because I was driving my minivan and had to run do something, there where so many things, bookcases, chests, tables.. but I didnt have time or space :/   so I picked what really called to me. Im so happy and will wait until it stops raining to start painting ;)

I love big trash days -- you can find some awesome stuff... And it looks like you did! I hope you'll post before/after picks when you get everything refinished. :)

Great finds!!  They do this here but the first day the trash doesn't pick up to leave time to scavenge!  Then second day they get what's left!
