One Man's Trash...

Is another man's crazy-dumpster-diving wife's treasure!


Aren't they precious?! Real wood adirondack chairs!

I couldn't believe I found them on the side of the road. Someone threw them out for bulk pick up and I just so happened to stumble upon them while driving with the boys home from dinner. I have wanted wood adirondack chairs since we bought our new picnic table, but they aren't cheap. The only thing wrong with them is that one or two of the boards are loose and that they need a new coat of paint.

You should have seen me trying to load them by myself. The boys were watching me in complete silence as if to say "If we're quiet, maybe no one will notice that that's our insane mother out there trying to load heavy, broken chairs into the back of our truck". I had to drive home very slowly, because I couldn't close the back gate of the truck.

Don't worry, I only had to drive up a VERY LARGE HILL.


  1. Hilarious!!! You know, this is how we got our tent. Out of the trash bins. Some friends of ours got a canoe.....serious things can come out of dumpster diving!!! :) Love the chairs. I can just imagine the boys' faces while you were loading those. My kids would laugh the whole time of my struggling!!!
