I found this neat metal table on the curb for trash pickup last night. It’s in good shape except for the paint job, so I’m going to de-rust and repaint it so that it looks nice and new.
Curb shopping is great! I’m always scanning the neighborhood for useful things that people have put out for the trash. Most of it is unusable, but every now and then I find something cool like this. It’s definitely a great way to find secondhand building supplies…people are often replacing fences or decks and getting rid of the old materials.
My favorite strategy is to look for anything useful while I’m walking the dog, then come back later in the car to pick it up.
