Why did someone throw away this little treasure? It just needs a little TLC, and elbow grease. I love the smaller sized objects. You can quickly pull your vehicle over to the curb, swipe the discarded items and throw them in your trunk all before the neighbors witness such low-level activity--or before they change their mind. You wouldn't believe the cool stuff people throw away.
This little nightstand was missing a little piece of wood on the right lower corner and the drawer pull. No big deal. My 'before' picture could use a little more forethought and skill. A true 'before' and 'after' would showcase the missing chunk of wood. I should work on that, but imagine the worst.
Neighbor looks out the window, sees me driving slowly by her house, stop, slowly backup and put the car in park. I quickly get out and examine her discarded object, grab the nightstand, pop my trunk and throw it in, and zoom away. She wonders, "What is that crazy neighbor doing with my trash again? Now what on earth is she going to do with that broken, ugly o'l thang? Maybe I should leave her a sandwich and aluminum cans." Now, she is intrigued!
What will it look like when it's finished? Will anyone want it? How much should we sell it for? Or, should we keep it for ourselves? Gift it? What shall we do? It's a nail biter! A cliffhanger!
Everyone knows the stories of 'The Craigslist Killer' or the guy who robbed the fellow in a Craigslist scam. It's a risky business to be involved in, especially in my hood!
A Feel Good Ending!
