on a whim

Lately I've been seeing a lot of Do It Yourself tutorials for turning dumpster furniture into beautiful furniture.  This looks like so much fun, but really, I don't need any more furniture.  Less is more, when it comes to furniture, and just about everything else. And I enjoy seeing lots of floor and wall space in my house.

One day I saw this sitting by the side of the road.

The next day it was still there.

The third day, I picked it up.

Before I lost the nerve, I found myself washing this piece, sanding it down, and slapping a coat of primer on it.  Then some leftover paint.

Then some fabric with Mod Podge.

And before I knew it, I had a place to store chicken supplies.  (Chicken supplies!  We're expecting our chicks early next week!)
