So, I totally missed Bulk Item pickup last week. Totally forgot about it. I managed to throw my old kitchen sink out to the curb before the trucks started passing through, but that's about it.
But then, on the way home from work that day, I passed a pile that hadn't been there before, and on top of it was this:
DON'T JUDGE ME. I know this whole picture looks like grandma's house. The chair and the chaise are soon to be reupholstered in fabric FAR less grannyrific. Just hang in there.
Look at the RUG. That's a free, 9x11" area rug. It's a cheap rug. It's a thin rug. But overall it's in great shape. I don't know why someone chucked it to the curb, except that maybe they just got a new one, but it's perfect for my big living room, and looks fantastic. (The Surya rug that I won last year is now in my guest room; and I'll be talking about that more later this week). It needed some serious vacuuming, and I used the shampoo-er/steamer on this rug, too, and now it's fantastic-looking.
It's also a bit more wine-colored than it looks in the picture, which is kinda BRIGHT RED.
But anyway - yay!
So, more on the guest room, and about some more free furniture later this week!
