Dumpster Diggin'

A few weeks ago I pulled into our parking area and saw something on top of the trash, I walked closer and saw this beauty... isn't she lovely? OK well I knew she COULD be lovely. When my hubby got home from work I asked him to go grab it for me. He wasn't fond of the idea but he did it anyway (THANKS JAY!) It wasn't like he had to go digging for it- the trash was full and it was sitting on top. It needed a good cleaning and a little sanding and a fresh coat of paint and she would be beautiful.

I turned her into a plant stand for my porch. I don't have anymore room in my small apartment for more furniture. The drawers were a little crooked and it's a little wobbly, and I didn't feel like fixing it up perfectly. This will do just fine! The drawers now hold my gardening items and a few outside toys for my daughter- PERFECTION! And only cost me $3.00 for a can of spray paint (Krylon, Celery).
