Normally the winter months are not good for curb shopping, but January is kind of the exception. People get busy on their New Year’s resolutions to clean out their homes and get organized, and suddenly good stuff starts to pile up at the curb. Really good stuff.

Like the stuff that my husband snagged on Friday while taking the kids to school. Here’s what I found waiting for me downstairs when I crawled out of bed.

The kids are out on a two-week fall break, so I’ve been knocking out lots of projects, including fixing up this corner cabinet that we picked up from a curb pile a couple weeks ago.

It was very much in need of a good scrub and a paint job, so that’s exactly what it got.

Remember this farm table that my husband and I rescued from a neighbor’s curb pile a couple years ago? It had definitely seen better days. The table top was covered in tar paper; the legs on one end of the table were shorter than the ones on the other end; and a wood block had been added to one corner, presumably so a meat grinder, vice grip or something similar could be attached to the table.

This summer we rescued a HUGE arbor from a curb pile. It was in great shape, but missing its posts. We hauled it up to our cabin, planning to use it at one of our trail heads, and it’s been sitting there ever since. This week, we finally picked up some new posts from Lowe’s, and put it together. It looks like it was custom built for that spot, don’t you think?

Earlier today, my husband suggested we take a break from work to do a little curb shopping. I’m so glad he did because we found this corner cabinet in a pile. Crazy, right? It should work well in the living room of our cabin. It just needs a good scrub and a fresh coat of paint. Now to decide on a color.
