Side of the Road Bench

A big thank you goes out to my neighbor!
Yes you, on the next block, that threw out this great bench.

Really? Just because it is missing a slat?

Don't you know it can be fixed? I mean come on, it's a great heavy piece with beautiful carving and it's even pegged together!

I am no carpenter but this is a pretty easy fix....
not perfect but who cares! It's adorable!

I'm going to paint it a bright, beautiful color and add great pillows so it looks awesome on my deck this spring.

I mean really....
Thanks for throwing out such good stuff!
