A Neat Little Freebie...


I have to show you something so incredibly beautiful. BF picked me up from work yesterday (car is still in the shop) and when we pulled into the driveway, there was this bench that you see here sitting by one of the pine trees out back. Now, I'm a sucker for pine. When we rented that cabin last year in the Smokies, EVERYTHING was pine, and I know I just looooove pine.


Anyway, I asked him where he got it and he said that the guy who runs one of the chicken houses who he helps with sometimes has a bunch of these, plus tables, plus long benches sitting in a garage that he wants to get rid of. Now, if anyone doesn't know about people who run chicken houses, THEY HAVE MONEY...so, I presume this guy either was a) stupid, b) had so much money, he didn't care or c) doesn't see a truly fine piece of furniture when he sees it.

Omg, I told BF to grab as much as he can.

I'm not sure what this piece is except a small sitting bench. It looks to me to be big enough for two people, and it's just the most beautiful piece of furniture I have seen. This piece is solid. I tried moving it and I could do it, but it was heavy. And this is just a small piece. There isn't a piece of veneer on it.
I am in pine heaven.
So, what I want to do with it is refinish it back to its original splendor. That's my project the first of next week. Isn't it beautiful? Wait until you see it when it's finished.
One question, though. What am I going to do with all this pine furniture in an RV? *grin*

  1. I've heard about that particular hill; but where is it?
