So today I was going to write about another memory lane curbshopping trip.
I even had it all started in my drafts…
But when I got home from work last night I found that my precious pups have decided to change my plans and get me going in a different direction.
Poor Gail, I was on the phone with her when I got home and found this.
I knew something was up by the little pieces of stuff on the floor…
Uh-oh I said, what did they get into?
And then I saw…..
Note: the red isn’t blood, in case you were wondering. I thought the same at first until I looked closer, it was the red cross that was stenciled on that end of the crate. that was a huge relief! First thing I did was check their mouths for any injuries. All is well.
Gail may have heard a couple of uncharacteristic expletives pop out before I got control.
I can’t remember.
Oh, I knew it was coming; they had first tasted it a couple months back, but I guess they thought it needed a bit more time.
This was as far as they got back then.
I really loved my shipping crate coffee table.
It used to look like this….
I wrote a post last year about how I curbshopped it from my very own curb. Check it out here.
Just loved it!
I love my dogs more, and they give me so much more joy than any piece of furniture ever could.
I know that someday I’ll miss having them around to chew up the furniture.
So I’ll continue to simply refuse to waste money on a nice piece of furniture only to see something like this happen.
And I won’t cry for my coffee table.
It was free, after all.
And I did get another year of useful life out of it, so that’s not bad, right?
And it didn’t cost a penny, so that’s not bad either.
And you can bet the next one will be a no-cost piece too.
Just look how sorry Sandy looks about chewing up the table! How can I be mad at that precious face?
And now back to the subject of memory lane curbshopping…
You thought I forgot, didn’t you?
I had to wade through a lot of photos to find this one.
This piece here I picked up from the curb last spring in one of my favorite neighborhoods.
And thank goodness it just happens to be the perfect height for a coffee table!
I’ll have to pull it out and get started this weekend.
I’m joining the party at A little Knick Knack, and also
Joining Linda’s Junkin’ Finds Friday party, cause both of these pieces were curb finds!
