I’m all about finding new uses for stuff I find along the city streets during my morning walks. In fact, if I don’t drag home something, I feel the walk has been a failure.
I once picked up a fabulous 1940s settee – the old glider type – on which someone had painted “Set here!” Just last week I found a chair – with huge claw feet that is now at the upholsterer being covered. It was an antique the upholsterer said was probably worth between 800 and 900 dollars!
I found the old wagon pictured above dumped on the curb. I’ve been looking for replacement wheels to no avail. I had no idea that to do with it other than punch holes in the bottom and use it as a planter for my herbs.
Low and behold I found this idea in Country Living magazine. Pretty cool, huh?
I found this little Radio Flyer doll’s wagon at left at a garage sale for $1!
