Yah, it’s amazing what people will just toss out. We have a couple of pieces in our home that were just discarded on trash day, we picked them up and did some minor finishing/fixing and good as new. There’s actually a series on one of the cable home improvement channels here about some guys who go around finding furniture people are tossing, they renovate it and give it back to the owners. Pretty funny.
Well, we have the main table, but the end tables on either side of the sofa (read: drawers turned onto their sides) are in pieces.It’s also unlikely that the main table will still be there tomorrow (we might have infuriated the chavs somewhat ).
I used to have a friend who was going to college and she was broke as hell, so almost all of her furniture was cobbled together out of wooden pallets and Duct Tape. Her livingroom looked just like those photos, except half of it was coated in silver tape
Well, all the furniture has been smashed We managed to recover the sofa however; it was sitting in the street (turned upside-down and lacking all cusions ofc). I’m going to take my camera in tomorrow so as to take some snaps of what’s left
We actually spoke to our head teacher about our ‘sofa project’ today and he seems to love the idea, so now we just need to find a way of defending it against the chavs
ROFLMAO. And thank you for the reminder about the urban dictionary.
Back in the day I think we called them “juvenile delinquents”. And no, I wasn’t one of them, I was one of the kids in the library reading sci-fi or trying to write FORTRAN programs on punchcards for the IBM 370 at school.
